“During my experience at Kingston University, I found it to be well organized and extremely productive. Our classes were at a convenient time to accommodate both part time and full time students. We were provided with excellent professors, and the choice of modules offered was adequate.
My qualification has helped me immensely in building a strong future for myself. It has given me confidence, vision and great knowledge of law throughout the world. Since graduating I have been employed by one of the top firms in Dubai. I am privileged and honoured to be part of the LLM program 2007-2008.”
Kingston Law School has been an amazing, transformative opportunity for me to develop my international career. I grew my legal skills, gained confidence and a better understanding on how to achieve my future goals.
Studying and living in Kingston was an amazing experience, where you find the most tranquil environment to prepare for your exams or write a dissertation, and at the same time you always have an activity to do if you need a break. The facilities at Kingston University are improving every year. Riverside pubs, cafes, sports and art clubs are all within easy reach. My masters degree was one of the most positive and exciting years in my life.
"I've had such a good experience doing my postgraduate degree at Kingston that I just wish I had done it earlier! Coming to England (from Trinidad) for the first time since I was a tiny child was a daunting prospect, but I've found everyone so helpful and encouraging that I really didn't need to worry.
"I chose the General LLM in order to take advantage of the wide choice of options. In particular I've discovered a real interest in family mediation. My previous employers in Trinidad have shown much interest in taking me back after the LLM course, and at the moment I'm planning to take the Bar Vocational Course in London and then returning to Trinidad to complete my professional qualification. I'm now determined to make a career using the experience and knowledge I've gained from the course, which has equipped me to offer either a large or small practice some very valuable skills.
"In addition to the academic side of life, I've found the chance to meet a cosmopolitan range of fellow students on the course so enjoyable. The University was able to find me terrific accommodation, and I've been very happy with a landlady to look after me and help me to settle in. I'm sure that the whole adventure, together with the excellent courses offered, will make the experience one I'll always remember."
