Get to know the UvA and our programmes from 6 to 13 November 2021.
Students and lecturers from European Union Law talk about the programme and discuss career opportunities.
Because the EU Law Master’s track is so wide in scope, our graduates find work with a wide range of employers. These include law firms, (larger) businesses, the public sector and NGOs.
Our graduates learn to think like EU lawyers and are able to quickly master any area of EU law that comes their way. This gives them the ability and flexibility to adapt to diverse working environments and functions. It makes them attractive candidates for employers like international law firms, government ministries, consultancy firms, national and multinational corporations, competition and market regulatory authorities, regional authorities in the Netherlands and abroad and European Union institutions. In addition, a number of our graduates go on to do a PhD.
Dutch students can apply for the Master’s track European Union Law until 1 June.
International students who need a visa (non-EU/EEA) or international students who want to apply for UvA housing can apply for the Master’s track European Union Law until 1 April. International students who do not need a visa and will not apply for UvA housing can apply until 1 May.
The Amsterdam Law School offers experiential education that is unique in the Netherlands. In experiential education, you learn by reflecting on who you are as a legal professional and how you want to contribute to society in the future. You apply your academic knowledge of the law and your learned skills by putting yourself in the shoes of a legal professional in real or simulated cases. In clinics, for example, you will work on real cases. In simulations or law labs you will work on simulated cases.
You will be taught by top lecturers from the field and will learn a lot from each other in a small group of motivated students. Within each Master's programme it is possible to take at least 6 ECTS of experiential learning and a maximum of 12 ECTS.
Yes, if you are looking for more challenge and academic depth the Honours programme Academic Excellence track could be interesting for you.
