Dew, LLB Law student from Nigeria

Dew Uwadia "Being a student ambassador has done so much to help me grow as a person and improve my interpersonal and team working skills – which were really important for my law course."

Dew's Story

Dew is from Nigeria and in 2019 graduated with First Class Honours in LLB (Hons) Law with Business Management. When Dew applied for her course she met our Nigerian representative who supported Dew on her journey to the UK and Leeds.

From doing my course application to when I started, the whole application experience was very personable thanks to my Nigerian representative Adenike, who was so supportive and with me every step of the way.

Why I chose to study Law at Leeds Beckett University

Doing Law and Business Management gives you the best of both worlds. Although I’ll graduate with an LLB law degree, I’ll have the benefits of a dual degree. The thing is, law is straightforward - ‘This is the law, this is the situation. Apply the law to the situation and get a result.’ With management, you need to be more creative and problem solve to find solutions. My course helps me to expand my thinking and develop both my practical and innovative skills.

Living in Leeds

Leeds is a student-friendly, compact city and less busy than London. It’s easy to find your way around, and the shops are all within walking distance. The transport links for students are excellent. You can easily get on a bus outside Headingley or City Campus. 

I use the library a lot. There are so many resources and you can book and renew books online. It’s possible to renew a book for a whole year, which is great as books can be expensive.

My Future

I’ve gained so many skills from working as a student ambassador. I also learned so much from joining Student Union societies. The leadership, research and teamwork skills I've learned at Leeds Beckett will be transferable to any career I choose.
