Hey Thank you so much ....... :)

Just one more question.... Are there options to learn dutch language? does the univ offer some language classes?

Hi again,

I'm going to try and answer your question assuming you are non-EU. The ITC has a career service and there are quite a few recruiters. However, it is quite hard for non-EU students to get visas for permanent jobs and recruiters are not willing to take up very recent graduates or those with limited work experience. Many firms in The Netherlands however do offer internships and if that is your goal, you may be lucky.
Further, The Netherlands has a 'zoekjaar' visa which allows graduates to pursue work in The Netherlands for one year without the employer having to sponsor them. That however, is only for one year and Dutch companies really want people who speak dutch, especially in International tax law services. Dutch is not a major issue if you want to work in Transfer Pricing.

Regarding the LeXs, I am only aware of 1 or may be 2 student in our year who got it but the criteria for providing it is not transparent and hence there is no information available.

Further, regarding the ADIT, it is a good course and you even get exemptions from certain exams of the ADIT if you are pursuing the ITC LLM. Whether, you should give it or not is your judgement call based on your career aspirations and education goals. You should know that the LLM is very intensive course and i do not recommend doing any additional courses at least till March end. The course for us has only recently started getting a little easier.

I hope this answers your questions.

Regards,
NT

For those in above conversation, who joined the LLM in Leiden, how are the job opportunities in Netherlands after LLM in International tax from Leiden, if one goes for this course directly after graduation?
