Email Sezen

I am Sezen Kama, a Queen Mary University of London LL.M. graduate and currently a research fellow at Istanbul Medeniyet University Faculty of Law Department of Constitutional Law in Turkey.

I found Queen Mary University of London LL.M. in Human Rights Law challenging and diverse. Modules such as ‘European Human Rights Law’, ‘International and Comparative and Social Justice’, ‘International Law’ in particular. It was an extremely productive but at the same time compelling period for me. However Queen Mary makes everything easier for you.

Firstly, our lecturers are friendly and ready to help students. Even completing your study, they still guide you through your academic studies. For instance, my dissertation for International and Comparative Social Justice module was "Another Dimension of the Right to Education: Is "Equally Accessible Higher Education" a Dream?" will be published in Queen Mary Human Rights Law Review, thanks to Prof. Geraldine Van Bueren (one of the original drafters of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child). In addition, Queen Mary LL.M. Officers and a career consultant for law students are other important figures for student prospects. They are always available to help and answer any questions.

I became one of LL.M. representatives and a Vice-President at Queen Mary Turkish Society. My team members and I at QMUL Turkish Society organised many social organizations, like Traditional Turkish Breakfast, A Donation Night for Syria with UNICEF Syria Campaign and so on. This is because I am experienced with international organizations and have been a member of Human Rights Lawyer Association since 2012.

I am here to answer your questions related to LL.M., accommodation, and of course London, the capital city of all good memories. Do not forget; "When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford."
— Samuel Johnson


Gozde Kokturk


To have an education in London was a dream since childhood. After a challenging selection process, I was granted a Jean Monnet Scholarship funded by European Union and this allowed me to take up a place on Queen Mary’s LLM. The Centre for Commercial Law Studies is known worldwide for its distinguished academicians, many play a significant role not only in the academic field but also in the law making industry.


Cancan Ece Öz
International Foundation Programme


Through the foundation programme I developed my level of understanding in various subjects and improved my English for undergraduate study. I learnt reading and research strategies and developed presentation techniques which are fundamental for academic and professional life. Our lecturers were always helpful and very keen to share their knowledge with students.


Gozde Bilen
MSc Management and Organisational Innovation


After gaining three valuable years’ work experience, I realized that in order to progress professionally and personally I needed to broaden my horizons and improve my professional CV and develop my qualifications. I had always liked the idea of living abroad and in particular in one of the world’s foremost cities. London was my first choice in this regard as it represents the cutting edge in commerce, fashion, culture and technology. London has so much to offer and among its diverse attractions is a top class, high quality education system. Queen Mary, University of London offered what I was looking for. After reading about the university online and about the courses offered in a seminar on education abroad that I attended, I thought that QMUL was the best choice for me. QMUL has a fantastic campus in central London, an active social life, and has students from many different countries and excellent teachers with years of experience in their field. It has provided me with most of the new opportunities I wanted and with an unforgettable experience of living in the vibrant city of London


Mustafa Dalkiran,
MSc Management of Intellectual Property


My main motivation for choosing Queen Mary was its excellent reputation. A number of social and cultural activities are arranged by Queen Mary
for Intellectual Property students and researchers, and I greatly value this input. Queen Mary students also enjoy the use of first-class facilities such as the library at Senate House which includes unlimited access to e-journals and e-books on the university databases, in addition to the in-sessional English Language Programme.


I really appreciate the sense of living history in London, and have made the most of the sightseeing and entertainment opportunities available. It is a great city to live in.
