Being a member of the world´s biggest human rights organization, Amnesty International, I have dreamt of not just being a Lawyer, but one with class and difference. To achieve my dreams, I applied to study Law in one of the world´s leading universities- the University of London International Programmes.Yes, this means I would be able to enrich myself personally, promote my worth in the labour market, earn the University of London’s prestigious LLB degree and practice as a Human Rights Lawyer.
Having studied at the Faculty of Law of the Obafemi Awolowo University Ile-Ife, Nigeria, for two years and having served as the Coordinator of Amnesty International-Nigeria Group 4 in my home country university, I want to step up, move on to the next level, be more and study through the most challenging, yet rewarding distance learning and flexible programmes in the world while I continue working and taking care of my family and my studies.
Since the University of London has been offering degree programmes to students worldwide since 1858, and has got a track record in delivering courses to people wherever they live and whatever their circumstances, there is no wiser choice I could have made than to come to the University of London-a place where world leaders such as Nobel Laureate Wole Soyinka and former South African President Nelson Mandela among others were/are made.
Presently. I live in Bratislava, Slovakia. I am proud to be one of the over 50,000 students of UOL who are scattered worldwide. I am finding every second with the UOL academically interesting. To my colleagues who are together with me on this rigorous and sweet academic journey , what else could I say than congratulations. May we arrive our destination safely.-Akintayo
