Anisa Islam

Law
Anisa Islam

Anisa is a third year LLB Law student. Studying law has opened up many different career pathways for her; she isn't confined to just one career route.

Why did you decide to apply to study at City?  

One of the main reasons I applied to City was due to the fact that it was located in the heart of legal London, something I found crucial for my law degree. I also loved the course structure and knew I would enjoy learning about specific areas of the law.

What is your favourite thing about studying at City?      

My favourite thing about studying at City is the facilities that are available to us, particularly during exam periods when we need it the most. I also appreciate how help is always on hand; if you don’t understand anything in your lectures, your professors are only an email away.

What kind of things are you involved in outside of your course?

Outside of my course, I am a Student Ambassador and have been doing this role for the past 3 years. I get to help out at Open Days and even attend Higher Education fairs where I get to talk to prospective students about City.

What do you plan to do after you graduate?

Because I’m lucky enough to have such a broad degree, I feel as though it has opened many different pathways for me and I’m not confined to go down a certain career route. At the moment, I’m either looking to go into full time teaching, become a qualified solicitor or even join CID. There’s so many options and despite being in my third year, I still haven’t decided!

What would be your top tip for our applicants?

My top tip for applicants would be to study as hard as you can. And when choosing a university, consider the location, the environment and most importantly, if the course is right for you.
