Dual LLM Corporate and Insolvency Law/European and Insolvency Law
Nottingham Law School and Radboud University, Nijmegen, The Netherlands have become partners to offer an exciting and innovative dual Masters in Law degree. At the end of one year of study, successful students will be awarded the LLM Corporate and Insolvency Law from Nottingham Law School and the LLM European and Insolvency Law from Radboud University.
This dual LLM programme is designed for students who wish to develop their understanding and knowledge of Corporate, Insolvency and European Law for a legal career with a strong European and international focus.
The modules taught at both campuses are presented in English, and students will enjoy the benefits of being taught by experts from both the Nottingham Law School and the Faculty of Law at Radboud University. Lecturers from both universities will be at the Radboud University campus at the start of the course to welcome students, and to ensure that they quickly settle into student life.
The programme is taught at the Radboud University campus in Nijmegen during the first semester from September to the end of December. Students then move to the Nottingham Law School City site in Nottingham, and are taught there until early May. The LLM thesis / dissertation can be completed at either campus. Two of the modules on the programme are full year modules and are studied partially at the Nijmegen campus, partially at the Nottingham campus, and partially on-line through the Nottingham Trent University online workspace (NOW).
You are required to have one of the following:
- a Dutch Bachelor's degree (or equivalent, from a research university) in law and knowledge of the basic concepts of international or European Law (as established by the Examinations Board)
- a UK undergraduate degree in Law (2.2 or above) or, an honours degree in another discipline plus either the CPE (Common Professional Examination) or GDL (Graduate Diploma in Law) conversion qualification
- a recognised undergraduate degree in law equivalent to either of the above qualifications.
International student language requirements
In order to study on this programme you need to have a sufficient level of English. Non-native speakers of English, without a Dutch Bachelor's degree or VWO diploma, need one of the following:
- a TOEFL iBT score of 83 (with at least: Reading 18, Listening 17; Speaking 20; Writing 17)
- an IELTS score of at least 6.5
- a Cambridge Certificate in Advanced English (CAE) or Certificate of Proficiency in English (CPE) with a mark of C or higher.
International student visa requirements
It is imperative that all students check the visa requirements for studying in the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. A visa granted for The Netherlands does not automatically allow applicants entry into the United Kingdom, and vice versa. Students must therefore ensure that they meet the visa requirements of both countries when applying for a place on this dual programme, and must also ensure that applications are submitted in plenty of time before the commencement of modules at each campus.
International students will be required to have a valid visa for studying in both The Netherlands and in the UK. As the programme commences in The Netherlands international students will start the programme before applying for a UK tier 4 visa.
It is the responsibility of the student to obtain their visas.
