Student Stories Student Stories

Germany: Eike Eden - Master of Law

UEA had a great campus atmosphere and student life and offered interesting postgraduate programmes. The LLM enabled me to learn a lot about the interface of law and economics which I have always found interesting ... the Centre for Competition Policy has an excellent reputation with respect to research in competition law and economics. The seminar groups were small and our lecturers encouraged us to actively participate and were happy to help if questions arose outside the seminars. In addition, students on my course were integrated into the academic life of the Centre for Competition Policy. We were invited to attend seminars organised by the Centre and got to know several PhD students.

My further studies gave me the opportunity to specialise in an interesting field of law which I could not study in such detail during the undergraduate studies. An additional year at university also gives you a great opportunity of broadening your horizon and making friends with interesting people from all over the world."
