I obtained my master’s degree in Management of Intellectual Property from Queen Mary’s Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS). This internationally renowned programme has not only equipped us with advanced knowledge of the IP law and its practice, but also, has helped us build up and sustain professional connections all around the world. For instance, the programme provided us with group working environments where we drafted IP due diligence reports of real companies to present to a panel of mock investors. Importantly, all groups were provided with successful IP practitioners to act as mentors throughout the process. The school also invited practitioners from a variety of backgrounds to be our guest lecturers. Last but not least, the additional postgraduate certificate in IP law provided us with a professional qualification that brought us extra competitiveness in the job market. Thanks to the knowledge and experience I obtained at Queen Mary, I was hired by a top British law firm’s Beijing office where I practised the IP law in a dynamic environment.

I very much appreciate that Queen Mary values its relationship with its students by providing them with various kinds of services on a regular basis, ranging from airport pick-ups upon arrival in the country to career sessions aimed to enhance your employability after graduation. Students are clearly cared for and supported at Queen Mary. Our relationship with Queen Mary has continued even after we have graduated and come back to our home country – the university and its schools organise alumni events in China every year in order to strengthen the bond with its alumni and the alumni network. As a former graduate of Queen Mary, I am more than happy to answer any questions from any current and prospective students of the university.
