Colette - Law

As a mature student, Colette Corea was concerned with finding her way around. At UWE Bristol she’s found all the support she needs to prepare for an exciting career in law.

A warm welcome

“When I was in the process of choosing a course, Kathy Brown was really responsive to my emails, and the law and applications teams handled all my queries really well. I was impressed by the website – it was so clear and made it easy to understand what the requirements of the course were.

“I’m a mature student and I was initially concerned with finding my way around the library and finding all the relevant cases. But the staff and the support that’s been available have made my time here phenomenal.

“I knew I’d made the right choice from day one – all the support that was promised was certainly delivered. I’d highly recommend UWE Bristol to anyone – without any hesitation.”

Exclusive experiences

“I’m a member of the UWE Law Society and I had the opportunity to moot in my first year. I experienced presenting a case in a court room setting and it was really rewarding. If I wasn’t in the UWE Law Society, I would never have had the opportunity to meet Lady Hale while on a field trip to the Supreme Court in London.”

Supporting success

“My course has made me a lot more confident. Taking workshops, managing my time effectively, and learning how to understand long cases without reading about every part of them have made me feel more self-assured.

“I know the course is preparing me for a future as a well-rounded barrister. The lecturers make sure we’re well-informed with a good understanding of each topic and I’m looking forward to taking the Bar Professional Training Course here at UWE Bristol.

“The tutors have been excellent and the library staff have definitely gone above and beyond to support me – so have the Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) team. It’s because of this support that I’m going into my second year with so much confidence. I really feel that I understand the core subjects we’ve covered so far and the workshops have been really valuable.”
