Did you always know what you wanted to do?

Ever since grade 11 I knew that I wanted to study law

Why did you choose to study abroad, and how did you decide to study in the Netherlands?

Studying in international schools I always knew I was going to study aboard. I chose to study in the Netherlands specifically due to its geographical location.

How did you reach the decision to study Global Law?

I decided to study Global law instead of other law programs in the Netherlands for two reasons: it was offered by a Research university, and it focused on multiple jurisdictions.

What is it like to study completely in English, together with international students? Was the transition from high school difficult?

I have always been studying in English in international environments and for this reason the transition was not difficult.

Can you tell us something about the teaching styles in Global Law? What is your favorite subject, and what do you like most about studying at Tilburg University?

Taking into account that Global law is a fairly new course the amount of students in the classroom is not too large allowing for more interaction with the lecturers. Students that are open-minded and dedicated are suitable for this program.

My favorite subject is private international law and transnational litigation. What I like most about studying at Tilburg University is the relaxed lifestyle.

Would you recommend studying abroad to a student who might never have thought about it before?

Definitely! It is an experience that really contributes to your personal development.

Do your studies take a lot of time? Do you have any time for activities besides your studies?

If you do not leave your work for the last minute and distribute it appropriately then it should not take too much time. During my second year I have had time to be part of two different study associations.

Are there any prejudices about your program, which turned out not to be true after you started studying it?

Some people say that law students do not have time to have a social life; I do not believe this is true.
