Entering Leiden with average grades ?


MonsieurK

Hello everyone, i had always thought that to enter a LLM programme, excellent grades were required. After a discussion with some friends, I decided to try to apply to Leiden despite my average grades. But the procedure is not free and I would like to know if I have a chance to be admitted to the European Law master.

My grades are :

1st year (Bachelor) : 15.17/20
2nd year (Bachelor) : 15.71/20
3st year (Bachelor) : 13.65/20
Bachelor : 2.2

1st year Master : 12.12/20 (that's the problem...)
and I have not finished my 2nd year of Master, but 15.3/20 so far..

I was wondering if the bad points in my 1st year of master made it impossible for me to be admitted.
And I had very good results (17-18) in all the subjects concerning european law.

I would really appreciate some information on that, thank you very much

You can always make up your first year with optimal performance in your second year. But after finishing your first Masters it would be best to take time away from study. You might be overloaded which resulted to your marks (grades) remaining constant.

Yes, that's true but I would really like to study "European law" in Leiden next year, because i find the programme very interresting, and i know i will have more job opportunities after this experience than i have for now.

So I would really appreciate if someone could tell me if it's possible for me to be admitted with those grades :)
