International Law and Human Rights is a 2-year master's programme providing comprehensive knowledge of the principles, regulations, subjects and practice in the field of international law and human rights.
Graduates have a competitive advantage in applying to and are well-prepared to work for international organisations as well as public and private sector. As international law and human rights are global, the graduates are prepared to start their career potentially anywhere in the world. The increasing globalisation, the importance of international legal regulations, and the role and proliferation of international organisations provide new opportunities for people with the specialised knowledge and skills in international law and human rights.
The tuition fee is 3,800 euros per year and it covers tuition and some study materials. Altogether 25 students will be admitted to this programme.
NB! Applicants who are not citizens of the member states of the EU, EEA or Switzerland and do not hold a long-term residence permit in any of these countries are required to pay half of the semester fee after they have been informed of the admission decision (offer) via DreamApply. The official admission letter (necessary for visa application) will only be issued once the University of Tartu has received this payment. The second half of the semester fee is to be paid after the studies have started, by 20 September.

"The programme is all about innovative approaches to a wide range of issues falling under the scope of the international law. The fact that the program also focuses on international human rights law is definitely a huge advantage, as it also points to comparative understanding of what international law means in different countries. I am truly delighted to be among the students of the first generation of this program."
