Both the Human Rights Centre and the Department of Government are world-renowned for the quality of their teaching and research, so the course was the perfect combination for me. I particularly enjoyed the module Human Rights and Political Theory because it focused on the justifications and problems surrounding human rights. I also found the core modules very interesting because they consider human rights from an interdisciplinary point of view, which is important to study in order to eventually work in the field. I am now studying LLM International Human Rights and Humanitarian Law at Essex, in order to further extend my knowledge in these issues. My undergraduate degree has proved invaluable in order to understand the more legalistic approach to human rights and appreciate the problems and benefits of the law. Being a student at Essex has been a life-changing experience and it’s a real privilege to continue studying with world-leading academics.
