"Receiving a scholarship made me feel like I really belonged to Queen Mary University. I felt this is where I am meant to be..."
Prior to studying at CCLS, I studied my undergraduate degree at Anglia Ruskin University which I completed in 2021. I also volunteered with the Legal Advice Clinic as it was an opportunity to enhance my legal skills and give back to the community.
I wanted to go to a Russell Group University, so I looked at the different possibilities available. I was attracted to QMUL due to the various modules offered. Initially, I applied for a general LLM which would give me a lot of options as I did know what I wanted to specialise in. I then decided I wanted to specialise after all; Queen Mary was very adaptable and let me change. I chose to study for a Masters in Intellectual Property Law.
I applied to QMUL before March and as I gained a first-class in my LLB I was automatically considered to receive a £3,000 discount. Due to this, I was eligible to apply for the Roy Goode Scholarship fund.
Coming from Nigeria, the fees are challenging. I really wanted my offer to come. My Dad kept reassuring me. When it did, my family were so happy.
Receiving a scholarship made me feel like I really belonged to Queen Mary University. I felt this is where I am meant to be.
It has been an eye-opening experience. My studies have been interesting, engaging with practical information.
I am looking to go into the business side of Intellectual Property (IP). There are lots of infringements in Nigeria. Back home, I want to run a blog and raise more awareness about IP. I hope to be able to work in the policy sector of IP and have influence. Coming to the UK has been a privilege.
