Dionne Moody

Name: Dionne Moody
Course: Law LLB(Hons)

"I would recommend studying law at Kingston to anyone who has a strong interest in the subject, enjoys research and spending time analysing legal literature. Kingston offers a challenging but supportive environment. The support that I received at Kingston has no doubt helped me to achieve my full potential.

"After graduating I was awarded the Sweet and Maxwell Law Prize for best final-year student and the Jean Monnet Prize for the top student in European Union Law. These achievements, coupled with a strong academic record, resulted in me receiving offers from the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge for postgraduate study."

"There were lots of things I liked about the Law LLB(Hons) at Kingston – especially the huge choice of modules and the practical skills elements such as advice and negotiation. I also enjoyed the extra-curricular activities on offer, such as mooting, which enhance your CV and provide you with the opportunity to meet key players in the legal field. Plus, the campus is great and the teaching staff are excellent - they really take an interest in your development, even after you leave."

 

Jonathan Chibafa

Name: Jonathan Chibafa
Course: Law LLB(Hons)

"I chose Kingston initially because I liked the atmosphere. It's friendly and it isn't too big. I felt comfortable and I was impressed by the level of academic support. The tutorials are in very small groups and there's plenty of additional support. The lecturers are there for you if you have a problem."
