“The experience sharing event on SQE exams was very insightful. The speaker and attendees shared their views and experiences, provided a road map for studying and taking the exam. The best part of the event was that I felt so lucky to be part of the QMUL alumni network, because you can always reach someone/an alumni who already had the experience of the path that you are willing to take and you can always get an assistance from them. If you want to be part of our network, please join us!”
