LLM Economic Regulation, 2009-10
"Before studying at Queen Mary, University of London, I did my specialist degree in Law at Voronezh State University, Russia. During my last year in Russia, I thought about doing the LLM in England. I was awarded a scholarship by the Thai Government and I decided to focus on Economic Regulation.
I am deeply impressed by the LLM programme, offering wide and flexible chances for students to choose which modules are suitable for them. Moreover, students here are able to access all the materials and classes which they deem necessary. The lecturers here have lots of experience and many of them are practitioners which puts our studies into a practical context. Direct contact with lecturers makes our classes more interesting, especially with Dr Gabriel Gari who always encourages us to do further research into relevant areas.
Besides the academic aspects, I have found that studying in QMUL has given me an opportunity to build a great social network, as the programme provide us a lot of social events throughout the year. Even though the LLM students here are from amazing different backgrounds, we all are able to both play and study hard together throughout the whole year. Upon completion of my degree, I plan to return and work in Thailand."
