LSE Annual Fund and Margaret Bennet Scholar

I heard about LSE from an alumnus; I then researched about the school and decided to apply for the LLM program having studied my bachelor's in Law at Makerere University, Kampala. I was offered a place and given a scholarship by the LSE Fund and Margaret Bennet.

Studying at LSE has been such a great opportunity for me. I have had the privilege of being taught by some of the world’s best tax professors, using up to standard and interactive teaching methods with a wide coverage of topics and jurisdictions. Being at LSE also enabled me to meet students from all over the world and learn from their experiences. The Careers Department at the School has helped to shape my dreams and aspirations. My experience at LSE has given me a different perspective of the world and opened up a gateway for my career.

Apart from the academics, I had the opportunity of enjoying the city of London, visiting museums, the London Eye and the theatres.

I intend to go back to Uganda and use the knowledge and experience that I have acquired to work either for the government or private sector and with time, use the entrepreneurial skills to start up a business.

LSE is the university to be at!
