LLM International Commercial Law (2013/14)
I chose the LLM at the University of Exeter as I wanted to gain an international perspective, enrich my personal experiences, and experience different teaching methods.
The extracurricular activities, student societies, and voluntary activities are well organised and I believe everyone can find a place to develop his/her interests and exercise his/her talents. The university provides a real sense of belonging.

LLM International Commercial Law (2013/14)
The opportunity to meet new people in Exeter is really something that had a great impact on me. People who come to the University are from all over the world. As a result, you can expect to make friends and meet people who may come from different cultural backgrounds, something that for me has provided a very enriching and satisfying experience.
