Master of Law – London School of Economics
I’ve been living in Nido for almost a year now. Coming to London after graduation was an exciting time for me. When I graduated with my BA, not everyone I studied with pursued a career as a law practitioner, but I aspired to learn more.
When I was preparing for the Chinese Bar Examination, I felt that there was too much material to memorise. There were times during my revision when I lost my confidence and felt as if I wouldn’t pass. After lots of hard work and amazing support from my family and friends, I passed.
Even after the bar exam, I still felt I wanted to do more so I decided to come to London to further my education. I was fortunate enough to receive many offers from various universities all over the UK, but I chose LSE because it offers great opportunities and is located in the centre of London. After my Master’s degree, I aim to complete my PhD at LSE and hopefully, one day become an in-house corporate lawyer for a global company.
My advice is to keep trying even when you think you can’t and always keep an open mind. Speaking to someone who has had the same experience and has gone through similar struggles is also very helpful in achieving your goals.
