Best decision I ever made

I felt that the University was unique in offering the opportunity to study English/Welsh/NI Law in Scotland. The best thing about English Law at Dundee is the high quality of teaching and academic supervision.

I felt that the University was unique in offering the opportunity to study English/Welsh/NI Law in Scotland. The best thing about English Law at Dundee is the high quality of teaching and academic supervision. There are some really eminent lecturers and professors and it is a unique opportunity to have one of these individuals supervise your dissertation. At Dundee you are encouraged to ask questions and challenge what you are taught, however in order to successfully do this you need to come prepared to classes. In Level 4 I was elected as Law School President…I had the opportunity to affect decision-making in the University and make significant change to the experience of Law students. Furthermore I then decided to run for election as Deputy President of the Students' Association. I was successfully elected by the student body and had the opportunity to work full-time for a year improving the student experience at Dundee. Had I not taken the chance and gone for Law School President I may not have been where I am today. show less
