On Moot Court
On Moot Court
‘Our last project was really nice. Together with my peers, I joined the ICC Moot Court. It means we receive a judgement and get to appeal it. The preparation took us 6 months. In the end, we got to go to a real court in front of our lecturers who acted as judges. We learned how to address different audiences. That’s one of the best skills we’ve learned.’
‘When I came here, I really wanted to integrate with Dutch people and I was told that this wasn’t even a choice: it was part of the programme. In my class there are both Dutch and international students. The Dutch are very welcoming to internationals. You don’t have fraternities here like in other university cities such as Leiden, but because of the way the classroom is designed, you have to interact with each other.’
‘My biggest inspiration here has been my lecturer in tax law. I’ve spent some time as her research assistant as well. She’s really strict and never gives a grade you do not deserve. I enjoyed it a lot: it helped me to become better and strive for the best of my abilities. It was because of her continuous guidance, constructive feedback and critical comments that I realized how little I know and it inspired me to acquire more knowledge every day.’
You have a Dutch diploma
|Niveau 4, middenkader- of specialistenopleiding|
To enrol for the LAW 4 year programme you will need a secondary school diploma comparable to a Dutch HAVO diploma and a good command of English.
Before we can decide on your eligibility, we’ll need to assess your secondary school certificate.
To make sure your certificate is evaluated fairly, we work with NUFFIC, an organisation that specialises in the assessment of international education qualifications.
This programme is taught entirely in English. You’ll need a good command of the English language, both spoken and written.
Bachelor’s 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.
All other prospective students are required to hand in a valid and sufficient language 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, for example if:
- you have an American or International High School Diploma, or
- you have a European or International Baccalaureate Diploma
21+ admissions test
If you’re 21 years old before 1 September 2020, 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 is offered at several dates between January and the start of the academic year, and consists of a digital 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.
PREP school (English Academic Preparation School)
If your diploma grants admission to the follow up programme of your choice, but you have not quite reached the required level of English, we offer an English PREP school. On completion of this programme, you’ll not only be ready to join a degree programme at THUAS, but you’ll also have learnt a lot about the Netherlands, The Hague and about our university.
