Second Admission Round Offered to LLM Applicants at Stockholm University
The first admission round for all LLM applicants at the Stockholm University Faculty of Law expired on January 15, but prospective LLM students from the EU, the EEA and Switzerland still have a chance to be accepted as a second admission round is now open. The Faculty of Law offers three LLM programs, including the following:
- LLM in International Commercial Arbitration
- LLM in European Economic Law
- LLM in European Intellectual Property Law
The second admission round is no longer offered to non-EU/EEA/Swiss students since there will no longer be adequate time for them to get a residence permit prior to the autumn term. The following deadlines have been set for the second round:
- 15 March 2018 - online application services will be opened
- 15 April 2018 - application deadline until midnight (Central European Time)
The LLM programs for academic year 2018-2019 will be divided into the autumn and spring semesters. Autumn semester begins in September 2018 and ends mid-January 2019. Spring semester begins January and ends June 2019.
Students admitted to the LLM programs who are EU/EEA/Switzerland citizens can acquire the degree for free. On the other hand, non-EU/EEA/Swiss students who already applied within the deadline need to pay for the tuition and application fees imposed by the Faculty of Law, as follows:
- SEK 900 - application fee
- SEK 90,000 - tuition fee for each academic year
To be eligible to apply, the LLM candidate should provide the general requirement of completing a 3-year full-time legal study comprised of 180 ECTS, as well as proof of English proficiency. There may also be other requirements.
