Tuo Zhao

My dream is to become a lawyer specialising in company law. I wanted to qualify in London first, and then acquire some work experience before moving on to Hong Kong or mainland China. I chose LSE because the LLM programme offered a range of options that suited my needs, and also for its worldwide reputation and teaching staff. Situated on a compact site in the heart of London, LSE has a unique atmosphere. As an international student, eager to get to know London, this position, combined with the diverse students surrounding me, has been the best part of my experience here. I have also benefited from the support services on offer – especially the Language Centre. I took part in pre-sessional English language classes before the programme started, which increased my confidence in my language ability and enabled me to play a greater part in class discussions. I also took advantage of Dissertation Writing and Examination Writing classes during the LLM to improve my written English. Once I graduate, I will pursue further professional qualifications, starting with the Graduate Diploma in Law at the BPP Law School. LSE has provided me not just with an international platform to launch my career, but also the knowledge and skills to help me achieve my goal of becoming a lawyer with confidence, persistence and flexibility.
