Matthias Schopf

Coming to Exeter for my LLM degree was a deliberate and easy decision. The Law School has an excellent academic reputation in the UK and worldwide, and provided several options for specialisation. The programme has given me a truly different perspective on European law and the implications it has with national legal orders as well as with politics. This thorough understanding was helpful for my following legal exam in Germany and still is for the doctorate thesis I am currently working on

Osvaldo Buzeta

My principal reason for coming to Exeter is the excellent programme of study that the Law School offers in Insurance and Commercial Law. The LLM programme director, Professor Rob Merkin QC, is known worldwide as one of the best researchers in the field of Insurance and Arbitration Law, so that was a huge motivation for me. In addition, the University is also currently recognised as one of the best in UK.

While studying abroad I have gained new perspectives in respect of my area of study, enhanced and improved my English, and had the chance to meet people from other countries. I would definitely recommend studying here in Exeter due to its excellent academic staff and rigorous programme, which undoubtedly guarantees obtaining a employment at the highest level.

Personally, the lovely and peaceful Streatham Campus is one of the most beautiful that you can find in UK. I have visited several other campuses around England and honestly, few of them can be equally comparable to this one. Being placed in such a wonderful natural environment surrounded by wide green areas, trees and parks make this Campus unique, as well as your experience studying here. The facilities provided for students (The Forum, Library and Amory Building) are also very useful and comfortable. The staff are always are there for support and help with any problem you may have. These factors certainly make the University a special and very unique place to study.
