Applying for an LLM Abroad

This course is designed to equip you with the necessary information and insight on applying to international universities and getting accepted into them.

About this Course on Foreign LLMs

In the past couple of decades, pursuing an LLM from a foreign university has become a popular goal amongst Indian law graduates. Specializing in a particular area helps you expand your career prospects and build a network of your own.

Studying in a foreign country, undoubtedly, broadens your horizons and brings you unparalleled exposure. It not only enhances your knowledge but also plays an integral role in your journey of self-growth and development. However, getting an acceptance into these universities is an honor which a few have.

Considering how different the application process is as compared to anything that students experience in India, you are inevitably faced with certain challenges. One of the biggest challenges is developing a focused strategy to get into the college of your choice. This becomes a difficult task because foreign universities require you to submit a statement of purpose, a CV, and letters of recommendation, instead of writing an exam to secure admissions.
