The tuition fee's are outlined here: http://www.uu.nl/EN/INFORMATIONFOR/INTERNATIONALSTUDENTS/FINANCIALMATTERS/TUITIONFEES/Pages/default.aspx

Note, you should read this very carefully as the tuition fee's differ depending on the LL.M you wish to take even for EU students.

Hi everybody, I'm dutch and currently doing my LLM in Leiden. I hope the following will help with most of your questions. First of all, don't look at rankings too much. I know in the UK and US rankings are important but not so much in Holland. All Universities have good/excellent programs. Just go for the LLM that's most appealing to you. All the rankings look at different things. So, it's not even that reliable.
Some of the LLMs do have high tuition. These are basically post-LLM studies and are not sponsored by the government. These are expensive for native students as well. (for example the Space law LLM at Leiden).
Hope this Helps!

I agree!

Important is to realize how the importance of 'ranking of a university' is considered in the country where you want to work or firm/ institute you want to work for. Also, ranking is of course not the same thing as reputation!

I think rankings in The Netherlands aren't such an issue because students are selected on basis of certain (selective) diplomas. When you have the right diploma, such as the VWO highschool (university prepatory) diploma, you may enroll at ANY university in the Netherlands you wish. So, if the differences between universities were big, students would simply go to a better university for which there are NO different admission criteria nor different tuition fees. Of course I am referring to the normal government subsidized programs.

So, most students choose their uni based on e.g. location (Leiden, Utrecht, Amsterdam and Groningen are very popular amongst students), the programs offered etc. and are not so focused on ranking.

In The Netherlands, grades, job-experience, having studied abroad, internship etc. are considered to be MUCH (!) more important than ranking!

I have seen a lot of posts here on the international rankings of Dutch universities regarding which is the best law school. There is also a national Dutch ranking, which is conducted for Elsevier, a well known magazine in The Netherlands. This Dutch ranking is based on the opinions of Dutch lawschool professors. You can find the 2008 ranking on (the dutch website):

BEST DUTCH LAWSCHOOLS IN 2008 (according to law school professors)

1. Tilburg
2. Utrecht
3. Nijmegen
4. Groningen
5. Amsterdam (University of Amsterdam)
6. Amsterdam (VU University)
7. Maastricht
8. Leiden
9. Rotterdam


For the ranking in 2005 you can go to:
http://www.rechtenstudie.nl/page?3,801 (also with the opinion of students)


So, while Tilburg being the best for a few year now, Keep in mind that all universities in the Netherlands offer a good education and the differences aren't that big. For example, the lawyers/ attorneys who work for the prestigious firms in Amsterdam are predominantly Leiden, Utrecht and Amsterdam graduates.

Hi!

I have been admitted to the Utrecht LLM in Law and Economics starting in September. Anyone applying or admitted to the same LLM?
I am thinking about trying to find a compatible part time job, but I speak very little Dutch. Any ideas?


Hello!

I have been made a conditional offer for the same LLM programme. However, I have not yet received my offer letter.
I have been also been accepted by the University of Southampton (Commercial and Corporate Law) and I am trying to make a decision, while still waiting for the EMLE.

Hello everyone,
I read your posts and I understand you very well because I was a bit confused also when I was searching for a LLM.
Almost in the last moment I found out about Radboud University from Nijmegen.
I am now a student there and I absolutely love it!!
It is a very friendly environment, a lot of International students and I didn't hear any problems about accommodation.
It is not easy I can say, we have to work a lot for the exams but I believe is normal, its a Master in the end!
Good luck!
