General admission criteria
The Master Programme is open to graduates in Law and students who expect to graduate in Law prior to entering the programme. The term 'graduates in Law', in the countries of the four RUN universities, is defined as follows:
- Poland and Belgium: master degree in law
- UK: LLB
- France: Master I in Law
- For all other countries, the Academic Board will assess the equivalence of the first law degree obtained. Exceptionally, the Academic Board may decide to admit applicants with a first degree in another discipline than law. In such cases, applicants will need to show that they have acquired sufficient legal competencies in the course of their program or professional career to usefully start the European Master.
The admission procedure is competitive. Students with high grades will be the preferred candidates for admission. Previous research experience is an asset. The Academic Board takes the final decision on individual admissions.
The programme is taught in English: applicants whose primary language is not English must take a language proficiency test.
All non-native speakers must demonstrate their English proficiency with a test result in the International English Testing System (IELTS, 7-7.5 pt minimum) or the test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), (computer based test 250pt minimum, paper based test 600pt minimum)
Students with a first or second degree with the English language as a medium of instruction do not have to submit a TOEFL or IELTS test report, but need a statement from their university that their education language was English.
Applicants with at least two years of professional experience in English may request a waiver of this requirement.
Applicants wishing to participate in a single week of the program during the first semester, as part of their professional training, apply with the Programme director.Such applicants equally need to show proficiency in English and sufficient previous legal knowledge.
