Master Degree in Law of Human rights


Vaho
Hi!

My name is Vaho and I quite recently became Chevening/BC scholar. Therefore, I will have an opportunity to pursue LLM studies in Human Rights. At moment I have 3 options. These are: LSE, UCL and Essex. Still can think of one UK based University. Would you advice me anything?

Cheers,

I posted my application form to the Lund University few days ago. My second option is the Essex University (both LLM in HR). In the UK there is a quiet high fee (for me it is high, but I'm not from the UK) so Lund would be better for me. On the other hand I've heard so much good about scandinavian countries, especially Sweden, so actually my biggest dream is to get access at Lund.
I'm looking for other applicants to Lund, sharing our experiences, information, etc.

Hi Satine,

I too was interested in Lund. However their LLM in Human Rights is for 2 years. That is too long for me.

Hi!
I applied both to Lund and Essex University. I don't know much about Swedish universities. I have been told that they accept quite a lot international students. As to Essex, you can apply for the chevening scholarship. I guess the university itself offers also some scholarships. You can check it on the website.

Good luck for you applications!!

good luck for yours as well!!!
I'am afraid, I missed the application deadline for the chevening scholarship (essex). There is only one scholarship at the Uni (for 2 students). So it is not very promising for me.... :-((
Without any financial help i can't study in the UK.

The programme at the University of Geneva isn't in human rights law per se, nor is it an LL.M. programme exactly. First, it offers a degree in humanitarian law (the law of armed conflict), not human rights law. Secondly, it no longer offers an LL.M., but a 'Master in Advanced Studies', which is regarded as the equivelant of an LL.M.

As far as its reputation: for those interested in humanitarian law in particular, it provides excellent instruction and career opportunities. Because of its proximity to the ICRC (also located in Geneva), many of the world's foremost scholars in this field research there. It is also affiliated offically with the ICRC, which provides students with opportunities not available at locations more distant from Geneva.
