Most courses offered to exchange students in English are from the Master of Laws programme.
For EXCHANGE students the tuition fee is waived.
Exchange students do not need to fulfil the requirements posted on the ‘application and enrolment’ page of the Master of Laws programme.
Students’ level in English should be AT LEAST B2 (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) prior to arrival.
Because the courses offered in English are at master’s level, we can only accept exchange students who have successfully completed at least three years of law school (180 ECTS) at the moment of arrival. The courses offered presume a preliminary knowledge of all basic law courses. Some courses require specific prior knowledge, please verify the prerequisites per course.
Number of ECTS
A traditional semester workload is 30 ECTS credits per semester. We do not accept incoming students who take fewer than 20 ECTS credits per semester.
Courses from other faculties
We strongly advice against taking courses from faculties other than the Faculty of Law. If however this is required by your home institution, it is limited to maximum two courses from another faculty and UPON EXPLICIT APPROVAL OF BOTH FACULTIES. Please consult with the international coordinators, and keep in mind that this may cause conflict in class schedules and exam times.
Exchange students who register for 30 ECTS per semester and who pass all the exams, can obtain the International and European Legal Studies Certificate. Students who come for only one semester can obtain a semester certificate.
We encourage students to come to the Faculty of Law for a full academic year.
