Public International Law: UCL vs. Leiden Advanced LLM


ArtK

Hey everyone!! I am lucky enough to have been accepted to both UCL and Leiden (in the Advanced PIL LLM). What is the right choice between the two?!

Leiden is more specialized perhaps (?) and close to the Hague etc. but significantly lower in rankings. UCL has an undisputed prestige and it is known as one of the best unis in Europe and probably the world. Pricewise, both programs are pretty much the same, even though living in London will be more expensive.

Which of the two would facilitate more a career in international organizations, give better access to internships etc?

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated people, it's a really hard choice to make... Thanks!

I would recommend studying where you want. UCL is the no.3 university in Europe and top 10 worldwide. Leiden is also internationally renowned and respected. It will depend on where you want to live and the atmosphere you hope to live in. London or Leiden
