College of Europe vs. Cambridge (LLM in European Law)


Nina N.

Hello everybody,

I got accepted for the LLM programmes at the College of Europe in Bruges and at Cambridge and have difficulties to decide which one to choose.

Bruges is much more specialized, has more seminars and discussions with practitioners from Brussels on offer, and the alumni I spoke with were thrilled by the "European spirit". Cambridge seems to be more fascinating from the academic point of view though; however, I am afraid that the atmosphere might be more competitive and less friendly there.

Has anybody got any experiences which he/she likes to share?

I would like to work in a European or international organisation or NGO later on, maybe also in national administration. Really don't see myself in an international law firm. What would you recommend?

Thanks a lot for your comments!

In view of your career plans Bruges is definitely better for you, as any European organisation or National Administration of a European country will prefer the Bruges LLM. Then again, Cam also has high reputation... but in your case I'd go to Bruges, provided you're sure you do not want to work in a British or US law firm in the future. Kind regards from Paris!
