Student Profiles


One of the reasons I chose to come to Warwick to study International Development Law and Human Rights was the content of the courses offered here. I always knew I wanted to study Human Rights, and looking at the descriptions of the wide variety of courses offered, I was sure I was going to get a lot out of the programme, and I was right. Coming here only enhanced my critical thinking skills and taught me a lot more than just the practical aspects of human rights law. Warwick has definitely been one of the most academically stimulating environments I have ever been in, and my teachers and peers have inspired me immeasurably.

As well as being an extremely prestigious institution, Warwick is also a very accommodating and friendly place for students. I was able to get involved in several activities, and the Law School staff were always extremely approachable and helpful at every step during the pursuit of my degree, since my application process began. This has made my student experience here that much better, and I will always remember my time here very fondly. For this reason, I am delighted and grateful to have had the opportunity to do my Masters’ here.
