Frequently Asked Questions
LLM in European Business and Social Law 

Do I need a law degree to apply? 

No. We accept applications also from applicants that have a non-law background. 

I finished up my Bachelor Degree in Law, which is held completely in English. Is this enough proof of my English proficiency? 

Yes. In the application system under the section for language requirements you should upload your university degree as proof of your English level. 

I am an English native speaker. How do I prove my English proficiency? 

Upload a copy of your passport or ID in the language requirements section. 

What does it mean applications can be submitted by candidates who “completed or are completing their first level university studies (obtaining their Degree within 90 days of the beginning of teaching activities)"? 

At some universities, graduation ceremonies take place in the autumn/winter. This is typically the last step as part of the university degree at which the diplomas are awarded. If this is your case, we will admit you upon the condition that you complete your degree within 90 days of the start of the LLM. The program starts in the beginning of September.
