The Master’s Programme in Air and Space Law is a combination of public air law, private air law and space law, both from an international and European perspective.
The programme is unique in the world. It has a clearly defined European dimension and, without neglecting academic levels, pays specific attention to professional applications, particularly through its internship requirements. The programme has been designed for graduates in law who wish to pursue an advanced master’s study at postgraduate level, and possibly wish to engage in a PhD. Some prior knowledge of air and/or space law is certainly an asset, but is not compulsory. The programme is also aimed at international legal practitioners in internationally operating law firms, private companies (e.g. airlines, aircraft parts manufacturers), civil aviation authorities, telecommunication authorities, international and regional organisations and representatives from various governments who wish to specialise in the area of air and space law. This mixed composition of the student body of both master’s students and practitioners stands as a guarantee for the high level of the programme.
International AccreditationThe programme has been running since 2000 and was internationally accredited in 2007. In the 2012 re-accreditation, the Dutch-Flemish Accreditation Organisation (NVAO) awarded the programme the score of ‘excellent’ on all evaluation criteria, which included intended learning outcomes, teaching-learning environment and end qualifications.
