"The combination of Law with Journalism wasn't offered at many other universities, so this unique combination initially attracted me to the course. I researched NTU thoroughly online and saw on sites such as The Student Room that it was highly rated and students enjoyed attending NTU. The course outline looked very interesting and included a variety of topics, such as Human Rights and Public Law. I was very impressed by the studio and facilities within the award-winning Centre for Broadcasting & Journalism, so I decided firmly on LLB Law with Journalism.
"The library, with study rooms and access to computers, was another attractive feature, and I was sure it would be invaluable during exam periods. In my opinion, the library is fantastic, it has become an integral part of my studies. It's very accessible due to being open 24/7 and has a huge amount of resources in terms of both physical books and online resources. I also appreciate the different zones the library has, it means I can work in perfect silence if I need to, which is great.
"I felt very welcomed within Welcome Week, the Fresher Reps particularly did a very good job making sure I and the other freshers felt welcome and comfortable. They also did a great job of being informative, helpful and friendly, which made a huge difference.
"So far I've enjoyed the Human Rights module and learning about how they affect people around the world as well as the interviewing and photography modules within Journalism. I particularly enjoyed a project we were given in Journalism where we had to go into Nottingham city and find a story by interviewing a variety of different people. I enjoyed this as we found a whole host of different people, each with an interesting story to tell.
"I use NOW (NTU Online Workspace) a lot within my course as it's where all the slides and worksheets from my seminars and lectures are. I find it very useful as it means I can find all content in one place and can access it from anywhere. It's also very useful in that lecturers can update students on it and tell us the latest news which is easier than me having to check my emails!
"The thing I love the most about Nottingham is that there's always something to do. The city has an immense amount of activities, often based around students, for me to do, and there's always somewhere new to experience and explore. Nottingham has a huge student population, so I'm surrounded by young people, which has honestly made me feel quite safe. I also like that there are so many different restaurants and places to eat around Nottingham, allowing me to broaden my eating horizons!
"I feel that I have matured at university because I have been given the chance and tools to become more independent, personally and academically. In the future I would like to become a barrister, specialising in human rights law and immigration in particular. I am looking to apply to volunteer at the Legal Advice Centre at the end of the second term, so I can gain legal experience and learn how to apply my knowledge."
