LLM Prices


Greetings
I´m preparing several applications for Universities in the UK, Portugal and Germany.
However, the LLMs I saw in Portugal and Germany are all around 15.000.
The ones I saw in the UK are around 9.000, apart from LSE and Kings College.
What´s the difference?
The ones that cost 15.000 are Masters and the others are only postgraduate studies?
Can someone please explain what´s the difference.
Thank you

You should explain which course exactly you are talking about. Are they all LLMs? If so, I guess there is no real difference between the courses. The Unis simply have a different policy and consider different prices as adequate for their services. Some programmes may, however, include internships or summer schools, which might be a justification for the price difference.
To which law schools do u want to apply to. I am from Germany, maybe I can give u some advices...

I agree with TiGGer. If you're asking whether the fees charged are intended to indicate that the degrees offered are different kinds of degrees, then you're really looking to the wrong criterion to determine what these programmes are about.

As a general proposition, if the programmes are all LL.M. programmes, then there is no difference in the level or kind of degree. The better explanation is that the fees are just more oppressive some places compared to others. There may well be significant differences in the programmes you are looking at and those differences may be important to you, but that's largely a separate issue from the fees charged.

Thank you for your reply

I´m think in appling to :

(Frankfurt) ILF - LLM in Finance;

Köln - LLM in International Business

(Portugal) Católica - LLM in International Business Law

(UK)Kent - LLM in International Business Law

But, my primary objective is to attend a LLM in International Business Law in Germany.

I have a A2 level of German, and the possibility to atend a LLM, lectured in English, and live in a German City, would be very good.

Thank you

Frankfurt and Köln are really good choices. However, consider that Köln is a HUGE university with about 50-60,000 students! It's a matter of taste... I would rather go for Frankfurt as it is the business capital of Europe with all major law firms around and the European central bank. Nevertheless, as regards the city itself I prefer Köln as it is less formal and ambitious. Life there is a bit more laid back (especially during Carneval in February/March...).
Where are you from?

Rafael - I believe the minimum requirement to study at Koeln is a C2 Level in German. Good luck!

The LLM in International Commercial Law at Kent is popular and highly rated. Fees were competitive a couple of years back and there were a number of modules offered. Check their website at: http://www.kent.ac.uk/law/postgraduate/taught/index.html

Recently secured 6th best Law School in the UK for research (RAE 2008)

The course is the same, I mean they are all master degrees. The difference is that some universities decide to charge more, others decide to charge less. It's really up to the university. The only difference in respect to UK universities is that some of them receive public funding and, thereby, they have to charge to different sets of fees, one called home fee and the other overseas fees. The home fees is usually quite cheap (around 3,000 and 4,000 pounds), whilst the overseas fee lurks around 10,000 to 12,000 pounds sterlings. If you'rea a overseas student, you will find that going to Netherland, Portugal or Germany may be cheaper...
