Josh Foster

Law | 2018

"I attended an offer-holder day and was immediately interested in what the law entailed. The university is very welcoming and the lecturers are very supportive. The law school offers a wide range of opportunities, especially for students from a non-law background. The course is very well organised and the teaching is very in-depth and highly stimulating. The course allows us to gain knowledge over a broad range of subjects."
