Europa Institut vs. Kent Uni Brussels


Hello,

I hold offers from those two universities, but still could not make a final decision. I have completed a human rights LLM in Turkey, want to go for an international career. So, I will do another LLM.

1) I applied for Brussels since it is the capital of the Europe. But, program is 17.000 Euro (which is not so cheap for me if I cannot get the Jean Monnet Scholarship.) I consider that I can find internships at NGOs and institutions to have experience and finance my living costs. Do you know if Kent Uni is reputative enough or is there any advantage to find an international job?

2) Europa Institut seems having a well reputation. On the other side, I ignored it a little bit because the city Saarbrücken is pretty small. I am not used to live in a small city. But what might be affirmative for me, I can speak German and have friend around Germany. I can find a job there in the future. Is it worth to spend one year in Saarland?

Ask the schools whether they think it's possible to find work after the degrees? You can even ask them to put you in touch with alumni who shared your goals.

Europa is a great choice if you want to study EU law. For human rights law, BSIS offers a specialized degree in this area.

However, keep in mind that an LLM is typically not a degree that's used for international mobility. I'm generalizing here, but most grads go back to their home countries after completing it. Barriers to practicing law - bar exams and the like - plus hiring practices at law firms can make this difficult.

Hello,

Thanks for sharing your opinions.

I seek for an education opportunity that I can seek for a job in Europe afterwards. As so far I checked, knowledge of European law is essential for corporates. I know that I cannot practice law as so-called a full attorney, but finding counselling positions in corporates seems possible. That is why, I need to choose the appropriate school, program and maybe city, as well.

Honestly, I don't think there will be much of a difference. It's a bleak situation, even for those looking for non-lawyer work. I would still ask the schools directly.

I kinda deleted Kent for financial reasons now.
Do you have any idea about, Bremen Hochschule's European Studies and Vrije Uni. Brussels' European Studies advanced programs?
