I'm wondering if anyone here has experiences with the following LLMs: International and European Law (Competition Law specialization) in Amsterdam, and International Laws in Maastricht University. I am having a hard time choosing between the two, so if someone has knowledge on either, I would really appreciate it!
I am facing a similar problem as yours. I had done a lot of research before shorlisting Leiden and Maastricht University. What I think my final decision will be based on the subjects ( topics I am more inclined towards) , faculty and how many international student the universities attracts.
I know a few people who had studied in Leiden and UvA but weren’t students of law. They really had good things to say about both the universities and education in general throughout Netherlands, Amsterdam is also considered to be one of the top cities to live.
Unfortunately, I don’t know anyone in particular who went to or is studying in Maastricht. A friend of mine who went to Leiden and is currently living there told me that Maastricht University is very good university and top experts on international and EU law.
I am more inclined to choose Maastricht because of the student to professor ratio, attracts more international students in the whole city in general and also of the aforementioned reasons. Leiden on the other hand has a better reputation, proximity to international courts and is also located more centrally in Netherlands, Leiden too has a great faculty.
Hope this reply helps you and sorry for the long post and unnecessary material on Leiden. Good luck
