Queen's Belfast (Cross Border) or Kent, Brussels


dbr9

Hello All,

I'm an American law student who will be pursuing an LLM next year. I have been accepted to University of Kent, Brussels LLM for Public International Law and the Queen's University Belfast/National University of Ireland, Galway LLM in Human Rights Cross Border. I'm having trouble deciding which program to attend. They both seem to offer similar classes, but I'm weighing the fact that QUB is much cheaper against the fact that UKB is near all of the EU institutions which could make it easier to find a post-graduation internship (or to work during classes). Does anyone have any advice or insight to offer?

Anything at all would be helpful. If anyone has information on internship likelihood/placement, quality of professors, quality of life in the area, scholarship opportunities, university reputation, really anything at all would be helpful as I'm not extraordinarily familiar with either of these two schools beyond what they both offer on their own respective websites.

Brussels makes sense if you are looking to take up some kind of internship. Plus, you're nicely based for easy access to a huge part of Europe. Belfast might be a bit isolated?
