  • At UC3M
    • First Year:
      • Students study a variety of topics within European Union law for a total of 90 UC3 credits. Two-thirds (2/3) of the courses are taught in English and one-third (1/3) in Spanish.
    • Second Year :
      • Students will be assigned to groups and given a case study to complete a final thesis paper (Trabajo Fin de Máster [TFM]). Each student will then defend their TFM to a panel of professors. For more information, visit: under the Programa tab.
      • Students also spend the fall semester at a practicum placement in a law firm or similar company, pre-arranged by UC3. Students not only specialize in a particular area, but also gain beneficial experience and network locally.
