IHL/IHRL LLM in Geneva or European and IHRL LLM in Leiden?


Hi all,

I applied to the masters in international humanitarian law and Human Rights at Geneva Academy but also for European and International Human Rights Law at Leiden University and got accepted into both, but now i don’t know which one to choose.

I was wondering if anyone who had been to either of them knew which option is better for living, degree, and future options because i can’t decide!

Thanks in advance!

I would go for the Geneva Academy, to be honest. They have the best reputation in the field of international humanitarian law and only a very limited number of excellent students get admitted there. Leiden University is really good, but it's definitely not the same.

[@ZakTom..Congratulations on both the admissions. I think it comes down to which field you want to specialize in. If you are interested in Humanitarian Law then I would suggest Geneva Academy as well. But if you are more into human rights then Leiden is the way to go. Also you could consider the high cost of living in International Geneva.
