Hard work pays off
Susann’s had a busy time since she started her LLB at UWE back
in 2007. She admits that one of the things that attracted her most
to the course was the setting she would be studying in.
"The international module choices appealed to me but also being able to study European and International Law in an English speaking environment."
In 2008, Susann’s hard-working ethic won her the Oxford University Press Prize for Legal Method in Year One LLB, which she received at UWE’s prestigious awards ceremony in Bristol Cathedral.
As well as her own dedication to her studies, Susann feels the
support she has received from the university has helped her to
achieve these results.
"UWE has been very supportive, especially the Law tutors and lecturers. The best experience I have had so far has been writing my dissertation. I was able to produce my own researched piece of work with the help of my incredibly helpful and dedicated tutor."
Susann plans to continue her studies at UWE and has big plans for her future career. "I will be doing an LLM in Commercial Law and then hopefully work for the European Commission in Luxembourg, where I have already worked as a trainee."
Busy being busy
But it’s not all work work work for Susann. Outside of her studies she takes time to get involved with other activities at the university. "I work as a teacher in the German Saturday School in Bristol and as a Science Instructor in Mad Science."
Susann is also a student ambassador for the university, working with students, parents and visitors at events such as Open Days and local Schools events. For Susann being in Bristol is the perfect location. "Bristol is a fun student city that is very lively. It’s close to the sea, the mountains in Wales and even London."
An international university
When we asked Susann what her favourite thing about UWE was, the answer was simple. "It is a very international university."
