The programme covers one academic year, for which successful students will receive 60 ECTS points.
The academic year is divided into three terms; it starts at the beginning of October and ends in June. The unique international and interdisciplinary character of the EMLE Programme is secured through an intensive co-operation between no less than seven European Universities and two non-European partners.
Students may study at up to three different universities but cannot spend all terms in the same location. In the first two terms students can choose among three teaching centres. This leads to an average class size of up to 35 students, given a maximum of 105 admitted students in the entire program. In the last term students have the choice of six different locations.
"The first day you enter the classroom, you will be amazed by the diversity of the student body, nationality wise and background wise. Do you expect to have a lawyer colleague who is also a pianist? Can you imagine that you say “Guten Tag” when you grab a coffee at a café before your seminar starts and say “Buonasera” when you leave a dinner party the other day? You should be prepared for something more, be prepared for people who open your mind and be prepared for a new prospect for the world. More excitingly you will learn a new research approach that you can apply to your assignments with your colleagues and even to your future career. EMLE is not just another LLM programme in Europe but the LLM."
