Tell us one thing you learnt from your experience at NTU.

Besides gaining great academic knowledge and experience, being able to adapt and confidently communicate is what I learnt during my three years at NTU. I had opportunities and was encouraged to express my ideas and true self in not just seminars, but extended workshops and events around the campus. The diverse environment helped me to meet great fellows from all around the world which boosted my confidence in social communication. From being a shy girl who was often scared of making mistakes, I am now a confident speaker who could be presenting and performing in front of hundreds of people.

The Metamaterials Employability challenge exposed me to real-life legal work experience in relation to my course. I enjoyed learning about the Swiss Mergers & Acquisitions regulatory environment and was very proud to learn that some of my findings were used by employer’s team on an actual transaction. The experience enabled me to understand what exactly clients expect from their solicitors in a commercial transaction. It also helped me to understand the importance of thorough and proper legal research to a client. I was also able to better appreciate the significance of commercial awareness in the life of a solicitor. In other words, in order to be able to come up with the best M&A acquisition for the employer, I had to first understand the nature of its business, considering the current economic climate.
