MIL students have ample opportunities to experience studies abroad. This is particularly valuable for MIL students who took their bachelor at the University of St. Gallen, though incoming MIL students often partake in exchange studies, too.
Every year, the program directors of the Law School in partnership with their peers at the Fletcher School at Tufts University in Medford, Mass., U.S.A., select a handful of students for the double degree programme. Outgoing MIL students study an additional semester at the Fletcher School and obtain both the MIL degree at the University of St. Gallen and the LL.M. degree of the Fletcher School. Selection takes place in early October. Admission is competitive and depends on academic performance, extracurricular activities, credible motivation, and English proficiency. It is open to MIL students and students of the Law School’s other master programmes in law. Interested students should contact the MIL program direction early.
MIL students have the unique opportunity to experience studies abroad through the THEMIS network. The network comprises law schools and is open solely to students enrolled in a programme offered by the Law School.
MIL students are also eligible to apply for the one-year CEMS Master in International Management (MIM). They can also draw on the University’s general exchange programme structures to study abroad.
