Law LLB

Ambassador for India

I love my course and I’m thoroughly enjoying modules I never imagined I would like. Our professors are very approachable and easy to engage with and everyone at the University is so kind and friendly. The campus is beautiful and the facilities are fantastic.

The University provides so many opportunities for us to enhance our CV and boost employability. With reference to law, there are so many prospects that I can get involved with such as the Law Clinic and the Pro Bono team. We are given constant exposure to professionals in our field and the Career Studio helps us with CV’s, mock interviews and finding an internship or a job. Frequent career fairs ensure students build contacts and network with prospective employers. Liverpool is one of the best at supporting students in terms of employability.

Liverpool is the perfectly sized city almost everything is within walking distance and it is culturally and historically rich. It is home to some of the best restaurants, the food here caters for all and will make your taste buds tingle. Liverpool also has the best nightlife and there is always something fun for me to do. During my summer vacations I started my own business designing and selling envelopes, greeting cards and bookmarks with hand quilled designs.


Rishma's top tips

  1. Don't be afraid to ask for help there’s lots available such as student services and an international guidance team. You should never feel like you are going through something alone, there is always someone to help you!
  2. Get involved as much as you can. The University offers an abundance of activities to get involved in. Attend the many events organised for you during welcome week and join societies. This will keep you busy in the first few weeks at University and it is a great way to meet like-minded people and make new friends
  3. Read a bit about the University and the city before you arrive- it will give you a better understanding of what Liverpool has to offer. You will also feel a little more confident about the big move!
  4. Try to find university groups on social media or connect with students who are currently studying at the university. It is always better to know someone before you arrive- it makes the move less intimidating!
