More about Phoebe
I have been fortunate to study at Nottingham Trent University (NTU) in all my Higher Education. I started the journey at NTU through recommendations from several individuals who had studied here as well as various other institutions in the UK and they highly recommended NTU. NTU provided the best opportunities for me. I have found that NTU is committed to providing students with practical application of their degrees which increases employability. In my case, I completed a placement year at a national law firm and was awarded a diploma in addition to my degree. Additionally, through the partnership that NTU has with Institute of Directors (IoD), I was able to be elected as vice chairlady of IoD student members at NTU.
NTU offers a wide range of scholarships. I have been fortunate enough to be awarded several scholarships through my academic merit: the International Scholarship Award (Undergraduate), the Nottingham Law School Dean's Professional Courses Scholarship for Academic Excellence (LLM LPC) and the Vice Chancellor's Researcher Development Scholarship (PhD). NTU offered assistance in every step of the application process for the scholarships.
Currently, I am undertaking a PhD in Law. I chose to study the PhD programme at NTU because the Centre for Business and Insolvency Law at NTU has some of the leading academics in Insolvency Law. My supervision team, which consists of three supervisors, is diverse and offers in-depth insight into Insolvency Law. They are very supportive in my growth academically and personally. My supervisors have provided me with various opportunities to meet and interact with both practitioners and academics in my field, and this will significantly enhance my career in the future.
