What did you choose to study law at Uclan?
As a mature student location was an important factor for me, but having looked at other local Universities I concluded that Lancashire Law School offered greater opportunities in accessing degree level study. I met with the Law School Admissions Tutor and was impressed by the course and what would be available, and the opportunities it would afford me in future employability.
What were the best aspects of the course?
For me the best aspects of the degree were the enthusiasm of the lecturers and their obvious expertise in their respective fields. If I didn’t understand something I would ask the lecturers questions face to face or by email. I found that these questions were warmly received and that lecturers were happy to help.
What was the key thing you discovered about yourself?
I left school without any A levels and the key thing that I discovered during my time at University is something that I have compared to the story of the Wizard of Oz, where the scarecrow receives a diploma in “Thinkology”, suggesting he doesn’t have a brain. In achieving a 2:1 degree in Law at Uclan, I too have a brain.
What would you say to other students thinking of studying law at Uclan?
I would not hesitate to recommend Lancashire Law School to any students considering studying there. I felt that I belonged to Uclan, I felt empowered and it enabled me to achieve my dreams far exceeding my expectations.
