Welcome to our student profile pages where students past and present have shared their experiences of studying here at Oxford Brookes. Simply click though to the programmes you are interested in.
I decided to take the LLM in order to retool my law career outside my field of experience and to explore the idea of pursuing an academic career. I was impressed by the array of modules and by the way that Oxford Brookes specifically reached out to international students.
The course enabled me develop my research methodologies and I was invited to assist in drafting research proposals. I even participated in seminars with undergraduates taking European Law. This experience confirmed my goal of pursuing an academic career at some point and informed my appointment as a short term guest lecturer at the Kenyatta University in Kenya. I am currently working as an Associate Protection Officer with UNHCR charged with coordinating and implementing the protection and voluntary repatriation of Eastern Congolese refugees currently resident in the Zambian camp.
Prior to participating at the Jessup Moot Court, I had very little experience of public speaking. Doing so at length before an elite group of English judges gave me a shot of confidence and an awareness of the enormity of what I can achieve once I put my mind into it, particularly in view of the achievement of our Jessup group.
