International Law students from University of Central Lancashire have successfully completed their degree in Bachelor of Laws and here the students tell us how they felt the experience was.


Dorca  Ndezo-kenne

“Travelling to pursue studies in a foreign country, I was very nervous. I worried about leaving family and friends, social life, managing my own finances, doing well at University. UCLan was definitely the perfect fit. The facilities such as the gym, as well as different social activities helped me to settle very quickly, and to meet incredible friends from all over the world. I was able to work part-time whilst studying, hence gaining some work experience, as well as extra cash. Proudly, I will be graduating in July with a first class degree in Law. This has already secured me a fully funded scholarship to study my master’s degree in a Canadian University. (Memorial University, Newfoundland). All this was possible thanks to UCLan and the incredible support from the team of Staff, most especially my personal tutor”.

Dorcas is from the Cameroon.


Adaeze Chinenye Okonkwo

“My UCLan experience is definitely one to remember. I knew that I never wanted to look back one day and say ‘I could have done better’ so I grew in confidence and gave my academics my very best shot. My First Class Honours Law degree is a reality not through magic, but through my prayers, sweat, determination, lots of sleepless nights and of course hard work. Apart from academics, my favourite part is the life-time relationships and memories I have built here.”

Adaeze is from Nigeria and started her LLM at UCLan in February 2016.



Christopher Akabzaa

“The Lancashire Law School has remarkably transformed me from a shy person into a confident, bold and approachable person.”

Christopher is from Ghana he will be studying an LLM in Legal Practice from September 2016.



Sunaina Tapsee

“My experience: January start was not the easiest option for a Bachelor’s Degree in Law, as the programme is scheduled differently and it’s on you to get around it. It took me around three months to get started but with the help of UCLan’s dedicated lectures I managed to bag a First Class degree in Law, which is a big achievement on its own.  My view is that if you know what you want and are motivated towards it, success is all what you will get.

Quote: “Those who hold a first class degree in law don’t have two heads. They are human like you so there is nothing stopping you achieving it.”

Sunaina is from Mauritius and will be studying the BPTC from September 2016. Her career goal is to practice as a barrister in her native country.
