I have thoroughly enjoyed my time doing a master’s degree in international trade law at Brunel Law School. Unlike many other programmes offered, the set-up of the LL.M. course provides you with two opportunities to show what you are worth. At the end of the first term you are given essay tasks for each course you are taking and at the end of the second term you will sit the exams. As regards the essays, these perfectly prepare you for what you will be doing over the summer; writing your dissertation.

Good guidance was given throughout the year and the lectures were interactive as they were mostly held in small groups, which allowed for discussions that were actually far more helpful than the passive lectures I have attended in the past. The law school also organized many guest lecture events where lots of inspiring people came to the university to lecture on their particular field of interest and their research. Again, these meetings were held in fairly small groups and allowed students to participate rather than sit back.

In terms of student life, Brunel has loads to offer as well. Coming from a country where campus universities do not exist, I was shocked when I first came to Brunel. It offers absolutely everything from supermarkets to football pitches. It almost feels like a small village and you practically do not need to leave the campus. But you should! London is just around the corner and very accessible from campus. You can even get back at night taking the nights bus!

In sum, I had a great experience studying at Brunel for a year. I have learnt a lot and have met a lot of interesting people. Without a doubt, this experience has significantly boosted my career prospects, which is very helpful in difficult days like these…
