After the course

An LLM can enhance the LPC which qualifies you to enter into Work-Based Learning with a firm of solicitors or an in-house legal department. The LPC also provides a good grounding for practice as a paralegal, in local or health authorities, in local or central government, in commerce either in company secretarial/governance/ regulatory areas or if you aspire to being on a board of directors.

There are many regulatory roles, not just in commerce/ financial services but also for example in the environmental field. A background in housing/employment could be a route into local government or the voluntary sector.

Organisations our legal graduates have gone on to work for include the BBC, John Lewis PLC, the Crown Prosecution Service, the Citizens Advice Bureau, numerous local councils and many firms of solicitors.

Loan Nguyen

3065.jpg Loan, why did you apply to study at London Met?

I decided to study at London Met as it provided the course that matched the academic and professional area I had been pursuing. Moreover, the University offers a wide range of scholarships and funding programs for international students. I myself was awarded
the London Met/International Students House scholarship, which covered full tuition fees and accommodation for the whole course here in London.

Where did you live in London when you were studying?

I was fortunate to live in International Students House (ISH) based near Regent’s Park, a very central location in London. I had the chance to meet many new friends there from different universities and learned a lot from their diverse cultures.

Did you apply for the course while you were in Vietnam? Was the application process easy?

Yes I did. I found the application process fairly easy and simple. All the procedures were implemented online, which saved me a lot of time.

What has been your best experience in London?

I personally love all the parks here – one of the very best assets of London. They are simply gorgeous all year round. I would say running in Regent’s Park in yellow fall or rosy summer has been my best ever experience in London!

Did you find part-time work while you were studying?

Yes I did. With the excellent support from the Careers Service and Employment Agency at London Met, I managed to get some part-time work with the University during my time here such as research assistant and events assistant.

What advice would you give to those wanting to study abroad in London?

Well, I would tell them London has a lot more to offer than just a place to study. I believe what they would achieve would not only be academic expertise, but also new friends, new experiences. As London has been voted the most desirable place to work, I’m sure prospective students would be inspired to plan their studies and career in London.
