Student testimonials

Ina Katamadze, student from Georgia:
I really enjoy my Master’s programme in European and International Business Law, it consists of very interesting subjects. I like the way of studying here, lecturers are great professionals in their field and friendly at the same time. Very often we have guest professors from different countries or local successful lawyers, who lecture in practical way or manage some debates about specific issues.
I enjoy library and its atmosphere, you can study there whenever you want, even at midnight.
My chosen study programme is joint with University of Savoie Mont Blanc, and I am looking forward to spend my third semester living and studying in France! After graduation, I’m going to receive both university’s diplomas.
