The EMLE programme is difficult enough without the extra pressure of scheduling travel and worrying about travel documents. Depending on your country of origin, applying for, processing, and delivering travel documents such as study visas can take a significant amount of time. Finding out this information with respect to your specific country falls on your shoulders.
Booking flights, organizing luggage, setting up bank accounts, handling local community registration, obtaining identification documents; these all take time as well. The more tasks you can complete before you depart, the easier and less stressful your studies will be. Since you may be dealing with four different countries (your home country and three different country study locations), it is important that you research how your bank deals with international money transfers so you have access to cash.
A good starting point is through your country’s consular website, as well as the consular websites of your destination countries. After that, the easiest is a simple web search for the information you are seeking.
Once again, we stress that you start early so your experience can be one of scholarship instead of stress.
"The first day you enter the classroom, you will be amazed by the diversity of the student body, nationality wise and background wise. Do you expect to have a lawyer colleague who is also a pianist? Can you imagine that you say “Guten Tag” when you grab a coffee at a café before your seminar starts and say “Buonasera” when you leave a dinner party the other day? You should be prepared for something more, be prepared for people who open your mind and be prepared for a new prospect for the world. More excitingly you will learn a new research approach that you can apply to your assignments with your colleagues and even to your future career. EMLE is not just another LLM programme in Europe but the LLM."
