Meet Camila

Meet Camila, Santander scholar - LLM, International Law

Camila What were you doing before you came to Keele?

Before I came to Keele I was working in my country as a Lawyer for a few years, when I realized that I wanted to study abroad. So I started to look at some programs and I also spoke with one of my closest friend that used to study here and he loves Keele.

Why did you choose Keele?

The program of the LLM was exactly what I wanted and I have really good references about Keele.  

Describe how you felt when you learnt you had received the scholarship?

After I applied to Keele I applied for a scholarship and when I received it, it was amazing because I am here with a loan and that helps me a lot. Also it is great to see that Keele recognized my previous grades and achievements.

How have your first few weeks been – what are your first impressions of Keele?

When I arrived everything was new but exciting and the people are really kind and helps you a lot. I joined a running club and I made new friends. It is remarkable for me how complete is Keele for you as an International student, they have everything for you, sports, religion, languages clubs that makes you feel part of something.

In my photo, I was a running Santa in a charity event, another amazing thing of Keele they help everyone.

What are your hopes, dreams and ambitions for the year ahead?

I hope to continue my learning process and in the future start applying it. I want to apply for an internship and develop new skills, and make new friends.
