Proof of funds for Leiden LLM application


AleksLLM
Hi everybody,
I have a question to Leiden LLM graduates or applicants.
Has anybody applied without submitting proof of funds at the time of application?

I'd also appreciate if anybody can share information about the admission process at Leiden. When do they start sending admission decisions? After the April 1 deadline, or is it made on a rolling basis ?

By the way, anybody got lucky reaching them over email of phone?

Thanks in advance

*i just realised i'm 2 years late in replying, but lol if this is relevant for others:

Hey, its on a rolling basis, but since its peak season, they tend to take a month atleast (if not more) to inform you of their decision. I got accepted back in November '15 for International Commercial law.
As far as I remember, while applying I wasnt asked to show proof of funds, you should just be able to eventually pay at the respective deadlines thats all.

Its already answered but yeah, you dont have to show proof of funds when applying, only afterwards when applying for the residence permit (I am currently struggling with my bank for this as they seem to be very strict).

As for the application process, it was quite a breeze for me. Pretty much all the universities I applied to were very quick to reply during the process and very helpful, Leiden was not the exception. The programme's coordinator and admission rep have both been very helpful and continue to provide assistance as I prepare for September.

As for my process, i applied pretty much on the last day for international intake last year, late march, so had to be put in reserve list. This was notified maybe on late may that I had been given a place. Had to defer onto this year due to monetary issues and time constraints (they basically give you June 1st as deadline to pay housing and arrange visa issues and this was inoperable).

Just triple check your essay, CV and upload as many publications.

EDIT: Sorry, i forgot to clarify, I wasnt put on reserve for the application on late march but because one of my referrals was late to submit her letter so my "completed" application was available until mid april or so.

RCR8, thanks!
I did not even know they can defer admission. Do you know by any chance how does the admission deferral effect the scholarship applications?

Naturally do not know how the inside process goes on or if it hurts your chances, but if you defer you can also reapply for LExS, just that you cant use the portal but rather send your essay to the scholarship department directly.

Haha yes I think I got a little confused with the date of the post, my bad :)
And yes, you can directly e-mail a fresh LeXs scholarship application incase you defer it. All your communications incase you defer your offer will be through mail.

Yeah pretty much. If you do defer just make sure you check the portal to see if it got registered. As the university is busy with the new intake they may miss updating your status.

@fazal12: You going to start the ICCL LLM this September too?

To answer the original question, you should apply era lire than deadlines since ad I've been told but the responsible coordinator the program will reach its capacity largely before since there arte only like 40 or 45 places.
So if you haven't already done it, I suggest to apply as soon as you can.
Otherwise you could be waitlisted.
For what I can tell, I've applied in february the first and I received the offer today so even if the process can even last 4-6 weeks they can be faster.
Lastly, remember that in march dutch have king's day holidays so your wait can be a little longer.

Hahaha, yeah I guess we are potentially. I also got a conditional but its due to them needing original transcripts and my diploma sent from the my undergrad university which I am currently working on.

You mean registering? No, it seems to be further down the line, as you need to provide a dutch address and they give you access to it until after you started visa issues, which seems to only be able to begin until may. At least thats what the international office has told me as the uni serves as your sponsor.

As for the dutch address it would be dependent on the offer the housing makes for me I guess.

I am going step by step, as the grades and diploma seem to be key for visa issues and registration I am doing that first. i paid housing fee on december.

Sorry I didn't considerate those things because being an EU citizens I probably have a different procedure to follow since I don't need any VISA.
In the e-mail they said I have to weeks to send my acceptance to their offer. Basically I have to print and sign a document they sent and to send it back by e-mail even if it sounds rather strange to me since all the official translated copie a of my diplomas should be sent by post.
Anyway just to be sure, On monday I'm gonna call Mrs Teit by phone.
I've seen you have been admitted to a lot of courses in different University, and you also have a huge work experience. You should be proud.
If 84 has something to do with your year of birth I'll be happy to know that there should be someone having more or less the dame age of mine

Ah yeah the acceptance letter, yeah I already sent that to Mrs. Van Domburg and apparently its enough with your signature and scan copy (bit strange indeed as everything else is certified).

And yes, 84 is my year of birth, indeed it is cool to have someone from around the same age. Most applicants seem to be in their early or mid 20s. I'll pm you to keep in touch.

Yeah pretty much. If you do defer just make sure you check the portal to see if it got registered. As the university is busy with the new intake they may miss updating your status.

Yes I intend to start ICCL this September! (There's a small 2% chance I'll go to Queen Mary jic they offer me a really good scholarship). But its more likely that I'll just stick with Leiden!

Hope you get it, there is always the possibility. I didnt apply to london schools because of their costs but was certainly interested in QMUL, they do have good scholarship options.

All the luck to you then.
