Elizabeth Redrup Law LLB (3 years)

Southampton is a very friendly place to study. Everyone is very helpful. I would say the atmosphere is relaxed but still hard-working. In the first year, the Law School had an induction day including team-bonding exercises which enabled us to feel more relaxed and make friends before the hard-work starts!

Research led learning really helped because it demonstrated to us a particular way of writing and also sifting through information quickly and accurately. Both of these skills, no matter what field you go into will be really useful in the future.

I found the staff very enthusiastic about the subjects that they teach, and that is really inspiring for students. It encourages them to engage with difficult concepts and whilst feeling supported. I also found them very approachable which I think is important, particularly in the first year when you are away from home and getting used to degree level subjects.

The subject matter itself was interesting, the wide range of modules, particularly in the third year, means that there is always something interesting to learn about.

I undertook an Italian A-level in my final year alongside my law studies. I really enjoyed it! The skills I learnt from studying Italian gave me confidence in my ability to achieve well in my finals; being able to speak a language is also an invaluable skill.

I also undertook two mini-pupillages and marshalled at Southampton Crown Court. They enhanced my Southampton experience by enabling me to see how the skills I was developing we're going to be used in practice.

My highlights are the memories I made with my housemates and course friends, playing for the University Ladies’ Lacrosse Team, being President of the Amicus Society and working as a Case Worker for Innocence Project. Of course, graduating with a First Class topped it off as an all-round amazing experience!
