LLM International Human Rights Law

The University of Groningen is not only symbol of solid academic formation, cultural activities and sports complement this wonderful experience. Groningen is a truly life experience both inside and outside the classroomsTo study abroad was not a new experience for me when I decided to do my LLM programme in Groningen; but without a doubt it has been the best choice I could have made. As an international law student to study in the Netherlands offers you a wide scope of opportunities. Most of the top international tribunals have their seat here...
The University of Groningen is not only symbol of solid academic formation, cultural activities and sports complement this wonderful experience. Groningen is a truly life experience both inside and outside the classrooms. How does it sound to you to live in an International Student House with 320 people from different nationalities and cultures? The first time I heard about the University I had my doubts about why they are awarded as the most welcoming university in the Netherlands, now I fully understand. Ever since your application procedure, the staff will guide you; and do not feel silly asking questions, believe me, I had many and they helped me a lot! Currently I am applying for an internship in the International Criminal Court in The Hague, which will help to achieve my academic and professional goals. I need to say no more, you have to live the Groningen experience!
