Yasemin is a 2nd year LLB Law student. She loves her course and is also involved in a whole variety of activities across the university.
Why did you decide to apply to study at City?
There are various reasons why I wanted to apply for City. The main reason was due to the perfect location of the university, being in central London and the prospect of studying in the capital was exciting for me. Also the location would give me more opportunities to find internships due to a lot of main offices being in London.
Another reason I applied to City was because of the high reputation of the university, specifically their law school, so I knew I would be getting amazing quality teaching from respected academics and law professionals.
What is your favourite thing about studying at City?
My favourite thing about studying at City is the diverse culture within the university. All my friends are from all varying countries from around the world. Personally, I love learning new cultures so it has come to be my favourite thing here.
What kind of things are you involved in outside your course?
I am involved in a whole variety of things outside of my course. I use the CitySport gym that is amazing because mostly it is all City students so it is great to meet new people out of your course.
Also I am on the women's rugby team, considering I never played before coming to university it is now my favourite thing to do to escape university stress.
As well I am part of the Turkish society and work part time for the university as a Student Ambassador.
Have you had the opportunity to do any internships, placements, study abroad or work experience during your course?
I am currently applying for the internships and the City Careers department has helped me greatly in getting fully prepared. Alongside this I have applied for the Micro-Placement Programme that the university runs itself that helps student to find a summer internship for 2-5 weeks.
I am also looking to do a study abroad programme in my third year, so I could be going to Australia for half of the year!
What would be your top tip for our applicants?
My top for applicants is to fully research the course you want to do and what university will suit you. Use all the resources available to you to make the best decision.
