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.

I strongly recommend the Executive Master to anyone with a serious interest in understanding the applicable international legal frameworks regulating armed conflict. I particularly enjoyed the high-quality teaching as well as working, studying and interacting every week with a group of highly motivated, diverse and experienced fellow students from all sectors and different parts of the world.
