Queen Mary in Paris students are able to take advantage of support provided locally in Paris, underpinned by the wider Student Support infrastructure of Queen Mary in London. Your Programme Director and Professional Services team are always available to help. Thanks to our smaller and more executive setting in Paris, we get to know our students well and we are a good starting point if you have any concerns. Colleagues in the Student Services Office at ULIP are also available and welcoming.
Queen Mary in Paris students are part of a wide and dynamic postgraduate student body and you will find that you are sharing your time in Paris with fellow students from various Queen Mary programmes:
Queen Mary offers a range of free and confidential professional services to all Queen Mary University of London students, including emotional support and welfare advice. These services are accessed remotely by our Queen Mary in Paris students, with additional in-person counselling services available locally in Paris, if required.
Since being founded, CCLS has helped shape the careers of over 13,000 lawyers who chose the centre for their postgraduate law studies. Our alumni have gone on to carve successful careers in law firms, international and governmental organisations and academia.
CCLS complements its first-class academic offering with career development and support, ensuring our students are ready to take their place in a competitive job market. This professional development and support are available to our law students in Paris through our Postgraduate Law Professional Development Team.
The flexible nature of the Paris programmes allows students to complete internships or even take on full-time employment in addition to their studies. Whichever path you choose, the Paris team and the Postgraduate Law Professional Development team are on-hand to guide and support you.
My area of study is in International Dispute Resolution, with a large focus on Arbitration. I was determined to take on an internship because I wanted to be able to have some practical experience to add to my theoretical understanding in class. My internship was perfect. Not only was it flexible enough to take on alongside my studies, but it was also at a renowned French arbitration firm Lazareff Le Bars, with a team of supportive lawyers. It has proven to be an indispensable experience because I have been exposed to arbitration from its international perspective and from the perspective of French civil law. As an Anglophone, common law trained student myself, this has added to my experience here and has really made for a rich and rounded year of study for me here at Queen Mary.— Nolwandle Simiso Dlodlo, LLM International Dispute Resolution, Paris (2016/17)
Our students’ views are important to the School/Institute and Queen Mary. There are a variety of ways you can use to tell us what you think and share your ideas for improvements and your positive feedback.
Student representatives, elected by fellow students, also speak on behalf of the student body at the School, Faculty and Queen Mary-wide level via various committees, groups and meetings.
Queen Mary in Paris students are represented formally by the standard Queen Mary Students’ Union, and collaborate closely with ULIP’s own SU representatives.
