    Leiden University is the oldest university in the Netherlands and by studying here, I wanted to enjoy an excellent worldwide reputation built up over more than four centuries. Also, Iknew that here, I'll get sound personal education. My GPA was 8. I had to submit an online application form costing around €100.

    Course Curriculum :

    The master’s specialization in Artificial Intelligence offered future-oriented topics in computer science with a focus on machine learning, optimization algorithms, and decision support techniques.

    I chose Leiden University, because of the following reasons: 1) It offered the course I wanted to pursue (besides it was also an Advanced Masters). 2) It was ranked in top 20 law schools in the world and top 10 for human rights law. 3) It was value for money as it was around 10-15 lakhs cheaper than a Masters degree in the United Kingdom.

    Course Curriculum :

    The Course curriculum and academics were really good. Since it was an Advanced Masters, it was very rigorous and intense than a regular masters. We had to read a lot of study material and prepare a lot of assignments regularly. The classes and seminars were also very engaging and everyone was encouraged to speak and provide their opinion.

    My choice of University was reasoned in my goal, which was that of developing international practice. Therefore, it was immensely important for me to decide which branch of international law would open up the possibility of achieving this goal, and secondly, who is the best in that specific subject. My choice of Leiden University’s International Dispute Settlement and Arbitration (IDSA) track was a mix of all these considerations.

    Course Curriculum :

    The curriculum is very intensive and Students should be prepared for a reasonably tight study schedule upon being admitted to the course. The design and interface of the programme with industry professionals and International Institutions integrated into the course, is one of the biggest highlights and is something that very few Universities in the world can boast of.
