Leiden, Tilburg or KU leuven


Shilpa A
Hey all,

I have gotten acceptance for law and digital technology in Leiden, Tilburg and KC leuven. Leiden and TIlburg are equally expensive and KC Leuven is much much less. I want to make a decision on options available to me after LLM from these places, I know Leiden is well known but is this worth the money?

In all major three university rankings (QS, Times, ARWU) Leuven comes out on top of these three universities, plus it is much cheaper. You'd be going to the best university for the least amount of money. Don't see why you would want to go to Tilburg and Leiden TBH

Hello,

If you look at law specific rankings, you will see that Leiden ranks #20 in the THE law ranking and #32 in the QS Law ranking. However, I would choose based on the specific content of the programme/courses that best match your interest.
Kind regards,

The rankings depend on many factors. All I know is the program at KUL is specifically tailored to Public/Business/Jurisprudence, which provides a broader exposure in different areas than Leiden. I remember last year they used to have a normal LLM for 2k Euros, and an advanced one for 15k Euros. I didn't find the logic for such a huge financial difference. Plus, they are not (if things have changed since 2017) oferring Scholarships for EU nationals who wish to embark on their LLM. As the normal LLM is concerned, I studied their modules during my Undergrad, which did not make any sense to study their courses. Thus, I believe KUL is best in this regard. 6k Euros for 11-12 courses from a really good university is a perfect combo.

P.S.: Leuven is superb :)
