Hello there,

I am a fourth year law student, and I am planning to apply for LLMs in human rights (or public) law next year. My goal is to try and pursue a PhD after that.

I am considering Netherlands (Leiden, Tilburg, Maastricht), since I've heard that there are good funding options for PhD students.

Belgium seems like a good option as well, with all the EU institutions, however I did not research it well to form an opinion.

I know that EUI is very prestigious, but I don't know how competitive it is. Usually, people from my university with similar stats to mine can get into Leiden and Maastricht, but fall short of LSE. So, if you can guess my chances with this information, I would be very glad.

Thank you very much :).
