Public international law LLM: Amsterdam or Leiden


Hi all,
I have been admitted for an LLM in Public International Law (general one, not research one) both at the Uva (university of Amsterdam) and at Leiden university. I am seriously struggling with deciding which one to attend. Is there anybody that has already experienced this choice or that can give me any advice?
Amsterdam university is very appealing to me at the moment but I know that Leiden has good connections with international organisations and it has visibility. In sum, I would like to know which one offers the best programme (visibility does not always mean quality) according to you and which one could be the best betweet the two options.

Thanks in advance.

The good news is that both of these schools have good standing in the field of PiL. Both are well respected and offer world-class LLM programs.

The bad news is that neither is clearly a better choice than the other. You'd have to have a hard look at the course curriculum and faculty for each LLM and see which one best matches your goals.

If it helps, either would be an excellent LLM so there is no 'bad' choice!
