My supervisors are extremely helpful and approachable. They’re always there when I have concerns and have supported my research project throughout, with their expertise and critiques.
A qualified barrister under the National Bar of the Republic of Cyprus, Maria Louca holds an LLB from the University of Keele. She came to Surrey to study for an LLM in International Law and received the Justice Umaru Abdullahi Prize for the best graduating student on the International Law programme. Maria was subsequently awarded an MA in International Relations from the University of Kent and then returned to Surrey to study for a PhD in Law. On completion of her PhD, Maria has taken up a lectureship at Leicester University.
I have always wanted to pursue an academic career, since my time as an undergraduate student back in Brazil. The School of Law at the University of Surrey excels in the field of legal philosophy and the Surrey Centre for Law and Philosophy is one of the largest and most active research groups in its field.
Law LLB (Hons)
My favourite moments were the unplanned ones, the ones where we just stayed in or had dinners, took a break from work, where we discussed our plans for the future and encouraged each other, knowing those were big dreams, but looking forward to turning them into reality.
Law with Criminology LLB (Hons)
I have learnt that if you take advantage of everything that is offered to you – and Surrey has a lot to offer – you really can achieve things you never believed you were capable of.
The Law LLB course at Surrey is outstanding. You’re guided by experienced lecturers and tutors, many of whom have some form of legal practice or extensive academic backgrounds.
The academic staff from the School of Law are excellent. The teaching staff consists of high-level academics and professionals, meaning a number of my modules have been taught by barristers and solicitors.
The LLM Law programme at the University of Surrey is extremely flexible and I enjoyed the freedom to shape my postgraduate experience in a manner consistent with my research interests.
I have been able to tailor my degree to my own interests and future career.
