General Information

Located on a green campus in the oldest city in the Netherlands, Radboud University in Nijmegen is a welcoming, forward - looking, research-based centre of learning that covers the full range of academic disciplines.

It has excellent study facilities and a lively student culture. The town dates back to Roman times and has a rich social and cultural life, including a variety of film, theater and music venues, international festivals and sports events. Thanks to good public transport connections, all other parts of the Netherlands are easily accessible and Brussels and Paris are only a few hours away.
Traditionally amongst the smaller in the Netherlands, the Faculty of Law of Radboud University has a long standing reputation for quality in research, teaching, and organization.

About twenty years ago, the Faculty of Law of Radboud University was the first in the Netherlands to start a European Law programme. During the past decades the Faculty has built an international reputation in the field of European (competition) law, immigration law, insolvency law and private law. Its approach to teaching is small-scale, personal, and interactive. Master’s students have close contact with both lecturers and fellow students, as classes are deliberately kept small.
The Faculty of Law has a truly international orientation and is part of a large network that includes more than fifty universities in Europe, the United States and Australia. All staff and students speak English.

The Faculty of Law at Radboud University is rated number one in Holland for student satisfaction and has moved recently into a new building: the Grotius building. This is an impressive ultra-modern building with state-of-the-art facilities for both students and alumni.

'There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy yourself in the way that most suits you.'

'After finishing my first law master, I was really looking for a further study experience, for sure in European Law and possibly abroad. The LLM in European Law of the Radboud University was the perfect answer to my request.

First of all it provides for the possibility of studying European and International Law by combining them. Therefore, in every subject more than one perspective is scrutinised and commented. Secondly, all lectures include workshops or team works that make the study of the subject not only book-based. Third, professors and the administrative staff are always available for clarifications or help.

The campus of the Radboud University is located not far from the city centre. Biking there is the best way to reach the university and to wake up in the morning.

The Faculty of Law, particularly, is inside a state-of-the-art building: the Grotius gebouw. Anything can be found there to enable a smooth and challenging study experience: from the wonderful library to the various leisure areas, the classrooms where lectures are really face-to-face with the professor, the beautiful park outside, where is possible to have lunch or relax.

But the university life doesn’t end with the study at the Grotius: there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy yourself in the way that most suits you. Just to mentions two: the gorgeous (and cheap) sports centre and the campus’ Cultuur Café with its events.

Finally, Nijmegen. The city is close to the German border and it’s not too big and not too small. Its dimension has the interesting effect of avoiding you the shock of moving to a different, huge city. Notwithstanding the initial confusion, it is easy to find your way through the pretty streets of the city centre and to find everything you need to live at most your university experience.

Personally, I have no regrets in having chosen the LLM in European Law at the Radboud University.'
