Joel Tan from Malaysia did the IFP in academic year 2012 to 2013 and has very fond memories of his time at Queen Mary. After the IFP, Joel completed an LLB at the University of Leeds, graduating with a 2:1 in July 2016. While an undergraduate at the University of Leeds, Joel also found time to work as a reading volunteer at a local primary school with Learning Partnerships. He then did his Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) – a postgraduate course for law graduates for aspiring barristers – at City, University of London. Joel is now halfway through his first semester on an LLM at London School of Economics.
I’m enjoying LSE so far! The course is intellectually stimulating and the lecturers are very passionate and helpful.
I must say the demographics of the course is extremely diverse. For e.g, one of my class had 14 students and all 14 came from different countries!
Joel is clear that Queen Mary’s IFP helped him develop the skills and confidence to achieve his goals. You can read more about his experience on the IFP here.
