Graduate Institute Fall 2018

Recommended Posts

Hi! 

I'm considering applying for the MA in International Law at the IHEID for next fall. I just graduate with my MA in IR from AU SIS and am currently working in nonprofit. I want to make a switch to International Law because most of my professional experience has been with rule of law/international law nonprofit organizations. So, I wanted to know if anyone would:

a. Recommend pursuing another MA in Geneva 

b. Know if I am eligible (I've sent them an inquiry) 

c. Be applying to this program or to the institute for the coming cycle

Thanks!

Hi there,

If I'm not mistaken, I think you need a law degree beforehand if you want to get into the International Law Program. (Anyone correct me if I'm mistaken.)

I will also be applying to IHEID for Fall 2018.

not according to their admissions requirements

my question would be, why does OP need a second masters? they won't be able to practice actual law without a law degree, which the MA is not, and if they just want to work around the topic of international law, they can do so with their existing degree. they don't need to undertake another degree program in order to build knowledge of a field. so what is the ROI?
