Don't just take our word for it – here's what students say about what it's like to study at Kingston University.
Name: Mahwish Sheikh
Course: Business Law LLM
"During my time at Kingston University I found the LLM programme to be well organised and extremely productive. Our classes were at times convenient to both part-time and full-time students, and the tutors were excellent.
"My LLM has helped me immensely in building a strong future for myself. It has given me confidence and vision, as well as up-to-date knowledge of laws throughout the world.
"Since leaving Kingston, I have been employed by one of the top law firms in Dubai – my masters has given great push to my career. Our course administrator, Pamela Sellman, played a major role in this. She guided and assisted us in every possible way, keeping the students motivated."
Course: Business Law LLM
Current position: Solicitor, Howell-Jones Partnership
"The Business Law LLM has been a tremendous opportunity for me to continue compulsory professional development in my personal fields of practice, whilst bringing real benefits to my firm. Howell-Jones Partnership has a good record of providing exemplary service to both commercial and private clients in a wide variety of areas of law. The practice is thoroughly progressive and innovative, and therefore regards the continuing education and training of all who work in it as paramount in the pursuit of excellence.
"Exposure to the innovative and practical course at Kingston has allowed me to see new opportunities in the way we should manage and develop our practice. It has allowed me time to reflect and consider my own fields of interest and expertise in a very pleasant and relaxing environment. I have really enjoyed the convivial company of my fellow students and as a bonus I made a host of friends and learned a lot from them too.
"It has been a very pleasant experience to return to studying and to the collegiate environment at Kingston Law School. Whilst I enjoyed the usual CPD courses, the LLM has given me that extra time to consider issues of law which can sometimes be overtaken by the demands of business life. The staff on the course are completely in tune with the needs of the profession and have expertise in practice themselves to draw upon. Many are practising solicitors or barristers, and some have part-time judicial appointments.
"My professional colleagues at Howell-Jones Partnership all agree that they have benefited from the highly relevant academic work I have covered. In fact, the most surprising gain was to see the management team galvanised by my development plan for the firm. This was based on the assignment I did after a brilliant module on practice management with a most stimulating lecturer from the Business School. We might see improved profits from our six offices yet!"
The award for teaching excellence included specific praise for the inclusivity and accessibility of the University's courses.
