Leiden PIL LLM


sj101
Hey, I was wondering if anyone knows how long Leiden generally takes to make admissions decisions? I have to decide whether to put down a substantial deposit for another programme soon, and would obviously rather not do it if its not necessary. It says 'within 4-6 weeks' on their website but I'd be interested to know if anyone has heard back earlier than this. I've already emailed them a couple of times but they've just said my application is being processed and referred me to the website. Thanks!

Same here, I haven't heard from them yet. It's been almost 12 weeks now. Even my referee's haven't heard from them. Have yours?

Ah that's not encouraging. No, my referees haven't heard anything either. I might actually ring them up next week and keep hassling them.

Hi,

I have applied for ICCL but have not heard from them either. It has been 4 weeks. I wrote to them and they said it takes longer during this period due to a large number of applications. They said they'll try to make a decision within next two weeks.

I also got conditional admission in Feb 2018.
I applied for advanced PIL at the beginning of October last year.

Recently, I got final admission.

I think the period mentioned on the website of Leiden, 4~6 weeks, is different in real situation.............

Wow, that was really early compared to mine. I had applied for their Advanced PIL program on the 2nd of March, waiting for their response.

I just got my conditional acceptance today (English test + certified copies of diplomas in my home country). I applied on March 28th. I would suggest you look at the u sis portal, I didn't receive an e-mail for some reasons. Best of luck :)

I have written them an email, I wasn’t able to login to usis portal after the confirmation email. The portal page reloads when I click login

I would suggest you to try resetting your password or contact to the ISSC helpdesk (you can find the link on the login page). I got my offer on Thursday and I have received yesterday communications through my U sis portal, but not an e-mail to my linked e-mail address. I hope this helps!

I was finally able to login to the portal, no luck with communications therein. However, I did call them today, they told me it should take another 3 weeks. In total, it will take them roughly 10 weeks to review my application.

I am sorry my tip didn't help much. Good luck still with your application and hopefully you will hear back soon.

Congratulations! I have received my conditional acceptance as well with the very same conditions as yours. I know that the English tests scores can be updated on the Usis Portal. However, it says that the final diploma or recent transcripts + letter of graduation has to be sent by post.

Do you know which postal address it has to be sent to? I'm having trouble figuring that out. Also, what are you planning to do about Housing? Are you going via the Leiden Housing option or looking out on your own?

Congratulations to you as well!
You can find the postal address in your conditional offer (you will see a link on the portal). I will arrange accommodation on my own, I think the deadline for paying the Leiden Housing fee is June 1st if you are interested.
