Tech Law - Tilburg, Utrecht or KU Leuven


Hi, everyone! I want to do a Master’s in Tech Law but I can’t seem to make up my mind about the best place to do so. I am wondering between the Law and technology Master in Tilburg University, the Law and technology in Europe Master in Utrecht University and the IP and ICT law Master in KU Leuven. I can’t afford the similar Master’s in Leiden, so I ruled it out.
I am well aware that KU Leuven and Utrecht University are better regarded than Tilburg as universities in general. However, I have read excellent comments about this particular Master degree in Tilburg, including that it is better developed there and offers better networking even than the similar Master’s degree in Leiden. I haven’t been able to find any comments on the Master degrees in Utrecht and KU Leuven, so I would really appreciate it if someone could compare the three options.
Another important thing for me is which city would offer me the most and best job options during my study. I will need to find a job while studying (a part time one probably), so that’s another concern of mine. I only speak English, so I am kind of skeptic about being able to find a job in Belgium without speaking any French or Dutch/Flemish, even though we are talking about Brussels here. I have also heard that Tilburg kind of sucks as a city and it is the smallest city of all three, so I guess it would offer least job options. However, I am not really familiar, as I am not a local, so if someone could also comment on that, it would be much appreciated.
So these are my main concerns. If someone could comment on what the best overall choice would be in their opinion, it would really help me and I would really appreciate it! Thanks in advance!

Hello, I graduated and I can really recommend the IP and IT law master. CITIP is a big and top-notch research centre and the teaching is generally excellent.
I disagree with how you assess the differences in languages.  The IP and IT master is generally taught at KU Leuven's campus in the centre of Brussels.  English is the dominant language at many firms and companies in Brussels, especially those focusing on EU law. And it is widely spoken in daily life (most native French and Dutch speakers have English as their 2nd language, not the other Belgian national language). English is also definitely more common in Brussels (and in Leuven) than in Tilburg or Utrecht 1f609

Hi everyone. I as well would like to apply for this master. I do have the same feeling that KU would be the best option considering the fact it is in Brussels. But I have a question. To apply for this advanced master one should have a previous master? I have solely an undergraduate law degree. How does the system work in Europe? I'm a Latin American student so I'm kind of confused. Did you guys already applied? Thanks in advance for any comments on the matter! 1f60a
