International & European Law - English - Full-time

Did former European Commissioner for Competition, Neelie Kroes, back down when she made her case against software giant Microsoft? Or did the International Criminal Tribunal of the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) let Radovan Karadzic get away with alleged atrocities in Srebrenica, even after a trial that took over eight years? It’s this positive mind-set and inexhaustible devotion to the law that sets our International and European Law students at The Hague University of Applied Sciences (THUAS) apart. This programme is specifically designed to be your springboard to a career as a successful legal professional in an increasingly international field.

Admission recommendation

You have a non-Dutch diploma

To enrol for the International & European Law 4 year programme you will need a secondary school diploma comparable to a Dutch HAVO diploma and a good command of English.

For the assessment of your secondary school diploma, we generally follow Nuffic’s evaluations of foreign diplomas.

It is important that you enjoy communicating in English since law is a very language-oriented discipline. This means that you should have a sufficient feeling for language and be committed to having a good command of English. You should also have an affinity for social issues and economics. A legal professional has to be concerned with social relationships and the role he or she plays in social dynamics.
This programme is taught entirely in English. You’ll need a good command of the English language, both spoken and written.

Bachelors candidates who are educated in the Netherlands, UK, Ireland, USA, Canada (Quebec only when the education language is English), Australia, New Zealand, South Africa or Malta, or students holding a diploma (including English as an exam subject) stated on this diploma list, don’t need to take an English proficiency test.

Please check our entry requirements for more information.

If you completed your prior education in another country than those listed above you might still qualify for exemption, if:

  • you have an American or International High School Diploma, or
  • you have a European or International Baccalaureate Diploma

Please contact the Enrolment Centre and ask for details.


If you completed your prior education in another country than those listed above, you might still qualify for exemption, if:

  • you have an American or International High School Diploma, or
  • you have an European or International Baccalaureate Diploma.

Please contact the Enrolment Centre for more information.

If you have not quite reached the level you need to enrol for a degree but your results are promising, we offer an English Prep School programme, which takes six months or one year. On completion of this, you will not only be ready to join a Bachelor class, but you’ll also have learned a lot about the Netherlands, The Hague and our university.
If you’re 21 before the 1 September 2019 but don’t have a diploma or a qualification that meets the entry requirements, you can take the 21+ Admissions Test. The 21+ Admissions Test will be offered at several dates in Spring 2019 and consists of a general capacity test. Please note that you can only participate if you have an EEA-nationality or residence permit for the Netherlands that is valid on the test date.
There are no exceptions to the official admission requirements. The Enrolment Office is the only party that can make decisions regarding your qualification for admission based on official regulations. You can’t rely on any other sources of information for your qualification for admission.
