Favourite thing about studying at LBIC/Brunel University London?

My experience at LBIC was full of fond memories and me helping enrol new students to the University, showing them the campus and facilities as well as providing tips on modules and university. The lecturers were also helpful in guiding me throughout the course as well as advice for the future and the workplace. My experience in Brunel was a bit different as it was a different atmosphere, as it made me feel more independent with my studies and made me organise my timetable to be on top of the course work.

 

Tips for the future?

My tips for future students would be to be open-minded and interact with people from different backgrounds, not only to gain more exposure to diverse cultures but also to widen their own experiences and knowledges. Do not leave coursework to the last few days or day as it only leads to you stressing out and making more mistakes in your work than you would if you pace yourself. Understand the expected expectations of the lecturer for each course and how they want you to approach a coursework or exam. Even if you do not have much time to study, one hour goes a long way. Always look to make connections as it can help you in the future. Most importantly join societies to either continue a hobby or try something new that you never thought about or even wanted to be a part of. Finally always remember LBIC is always around if you, just want to talk to people or are stressed with your workload.

Favourite thing about studying at LBIC/Brunel University London?

My experience at both LBIC and Brunel University were memorable and invaluable as I had the opportunity to meet the best people, be part of wonderful societies and discover myself.

Tips for the future?

I would recommend that future students consider the years, a journey to learn about yourself. The purpose is to grow as an individual; to discover what you are good at, what you love to do, and what you dislike. Discover your why, and you will become happier and more passionate!

Foundation in Law

What did you study at Brunel University London afterwards?

LLB (Hons) Law

Study experience at LBIC/Brunel University London?

The foundation in law I did from LBIC has stayed with me till today. The professors were absolutely terrific and paid individual attention to each student. The foundation programme helped me secure an overall high 2:1, as it clarified all the basic concepts of law, and allowed me to build further on it through Brunel Law School. I would really recommend it to anyone thinking of a career on law.
