You could be a trade policy analyst, researching trade-related policies at the OECD in Paris. This is what you do after you complete the degree programme and begin working on real assignments. But as a young professional, you do much more. You discover, for example, the culture at ‘your’ company. You attend meetings and company parties and meet with colleagues. You also learn all there is to know about ‘your’ market - the latest developments, the competition and what they do. In other words, you learn what this profession involves on a daily basis.
After graduating from the International and European Law programme, you will have a Bachelor of Law (LL.B.) and will be fully equipped to kick-start your career as a legal professional. However, in most countries, a Bachelor’s degree alone will not make you eligible to enter the bar. If you want to become a lawyer (advocate, solicitor, barrister, etc.), then you will have to select the country in which you would like to practice law and then establish that country’s additional requirements. In the Netherlands, for example, it means you will have to follow a Master’s degree in law and attain a so-called ‘civil effect’.
|What will you become|
Note, however, that different rules apply in the Netherlands, as most Dutch universities require that THUAS graduates follow a pre-master’s first. There are exceptions, such as Maastricht University, but students will have to complete an entry test first.
