Master of Laws LLM
I chose King’s because I wanted to study at a prestigious European university. King’s scored very high on the rankings, especially for the programme that I was interested in. So far, I have found the high reputation and quality of the professors and the multicultural environment felt in every class I attend particularly attractive. My professors make a big effort to obtain and facilitate lots of useful material on the module being taught.
Aside from my studies, I have been elected treasurer of the Postgraduate Law Society, which is proving to be an excellent networking opportunity. Thankfully King’s granted me an award to help cover my tuition fees and it has greatly helped my financial situation, especially while I’m living and studying in London.
When I finish my master’s degree I’m pretty certain it will help me obtain a better job in my home country and broaden my area of practice. My advice to students from El Salvador considering coming to King’s is that you can offer great value to the international approach that King’s gives to the programme, and the reputation of the institution. London is a multicultural city with a million things to do every day. It is a great place to do your master’s! The people at King’s are simply amazing and everyone is eager to socialise.
