More about Pamynder
I chose to study at NTU because Nottingham seemed like a very convenient city and the campus is very close to the city centre. I had also heard good reviews about it and was awarded a scholarship to help fund my studies.
The key feature that attracted me to the LLM BPTC course was the fact that it came with an LLM qualification at no extra cost. The module I enjoyed the most was Criminal Litigation and Advocacy as this is my main area of interest and each session was very informative. The small group sessions were particularly useful.
The key facilities that attracted me to the university were the 24-hour library and the Newton building. The students union (SU) also has a really friendly atmosphere and is a great place to hang out with friends. The library is very big and modern and the SU shop is nearby, which has a lot of everyday items.
The online learning system (NOW) is very useful as all the lecture slides and recorded lectures are on there all in one place. Lecturers add extra resources there to aid our understanding.
There are lots of options for accommodation. I am currently staying in Goldsmith Court which is very convenient as it is situated opposite the Newton building. The price of the accommodation is reasonable and it takes me two minutes to get to class.
I have attended a few Legal Advice Centre lectures that I found particularly interesting. There are lots of great opportunities to get involved in. I have learnt to be a lot more independent, going to university is a great learning curve. I value relationships with the people back home in Malaysia a lot more now as well.
I felt very welcomed when I started at NTU. There was an undergraduate BBQ where I made some new friends. There were also some quiz nights that were fun. I'm very happy that there is a large number of Chinese/Indian/Thai food available here.
My plans for the future are to complete my LLM and pass the Bar. When I return back to Malaysia I will continue applying what I have learnt here.
