"I chose the D/L programme because I was interested in telecom law and couldn’t find any other programme that would allow you the flexibility to work at the same time. This way, I gain the knowledge and experience I want, without losing time and, I will achieve the full two year LLM. I also get to choose my own modules, which is one of the main things that I like about the programme. I’m still at the beginning, but I find that each course has different approaches and methods like discussion boards and presentations, which is really helpful when you are away. The teachers are very responsive when you want feedback, like when choosing essay topics for example."

"I’m an entrepreneur, running my start up. Electronic Engineer and Lawyer. This is the perfect thing for me. I travel a lot for my work, so this is a perfect way to get access to what’s going on. Flexibility to create my own programme according to my needs was the reason I made the decision. The number of students is low, so you get a lot of direct support."

"I work as a litigator in a law firm and I wanted to specialize in Technology Law without having to quit my job, so I chose this program. It is quite difficult to find such quality LLMs where you can learn at a distance from such renowned teachers.
The educational platform is very interactive and the teachers are always very attentive. We often have online chats and even videoconferences, which allows us to get to know our colleagues better. Even though you are from a distance, you never feel alone!"
- José Aitor Santana Trujillo, Madrid
"I travel a lot and the programme fits perfectly around my work. I’ve been doing this for almost four years. I started off doing the certificate and now I’m doing the full masters and it’s really good fun. The online platform and tutors are fantastic."

"I am based in Malta and the distance learning programme works perfectly with my job and allows me to set my own pace on how I want to study. At first I wasn’t sure how it would compare to sitting in physical lectures, but I’m now in my second year and I don’t feel the distance because the staff are so responsive. There is a lot of administrative support and the academic staff are excellent at reaching out. It doesn’t even feel like I am away."
- Yanica Sant, Malta
"I come from a non-law background, but I have been working in telecoms for a long time. I live in Dubai and I have a regional role, so I am always travelling. I can join chat sessions when I am away and the flexibility of having my study material with me is very beneficial. There great support both on the administration and academic side."
