Applications for the Executive Master in International Law in Armed Conflict open at the beginning of March and close at the end of September (late applications are considered in exceptional circumstances).

 If you receive an offer, you cannot defer it to a later year. However, it is possible to reapply.

The Executive Master in International Law in Armed Conflict is a special opportunity to acquire, while working, a strong knowledge of public international law, international humanitarian law, international criminal law and human rights law. I need to learn about these topics and I can’t join a full-time programme due to my work commitments.
