My postgraduate experience

“I have been practising Corporate and Commercial Law for the last five years. I thought studying a masters would give my career a new opportunity to increase my knowledge and experience. I wanted to expand my network and research topics I´m interested in.”

“I wanted to study at a great university. I chose the University of Auckland because of the classes that were offered.”

“I’m a Spanish native speaker. By coming to this university, I challenged my English skills. It helped to improve my communication and research skills.

“I think studying this programme is a great decision. You will meet many lawyers from around the world and get the opportunity to exchange knowledge and opinions. Auckland is a great place to study and to live.”

Maria is a recipient of the International Student Excellence Scholarship.
