Students pursuing a research master's degree
Research master's students in Information Law and Public International Law may apply for an exchange during the third semester of their programme. Students should consult their coordinator beforehand to discuss destinations and choice of coursework.
Research master students are guaranteed a spot, but since a selective procedure is involved, their first or even second choice may not necessarily be granted.
