I chose to study for a University of London LLM as an external student for having a degree that is internationally recognized, of the highest quality, flexible and affordable. This degree has helped me better understand international legal issues and undertake analyses based on a solid legal foundation.

One of the greatest challenges was managing my time and combining studying with my very busy and demanding job. Studying independently also presented a challenge as there is no professor on hand when you get stuck on some issue. However as I worked through the study materials, I mastered a whole new world of knowledge and ways of thinking which have proved useful in all aspects of my life. I am quite satisfied with my decision to go for a University of London LLM and believe that this will benefit me throughout my career."

Justice Antony Gafoor - Philosophy

I am currently the Chairman of the Tax Appeal Court of Trinidad and Tobago. After pursuing a legal career which included several years of study with London University as an internal student and in practice as a barrister, I returned to my homeland of Trinidad where I accepted a position on the Bench.

I was prompted to continue my studies with London University International Programmes, not only because of my positive experiences as a student in London but also because I have always found the University to be well-organised and very concerned about student welfare issues. I commenced studies for a degree in Divinity because of my involvement in religious matters and progressed naturally and almost seamlessly to a degree in Philosophy because it helped me to further and deepen my knowledge of the invaluable role this discipline played in religious affairs as well as helping one to think more logically and constructively. In fact many world leaders in politics and business have found a background and knowledge of philosophy essential in grappling with challenges to which there are no obvious or easy answers.

With regard to philosophy, it is not the easiest of disciplines to study but it is enormously rewarding, much like attempting to fill in a crossword puzzle: you have to think hard before you come up with a range of possible solutions. Time and other demands of a domestic and work-based nature are always challenges that any student faces: my experience was no exception. But the material despatched efficiently through London University is of first class quality and in the end any such challenges paled into insignificance in comparison with the sense of achievement, even triumph which I experienced upon completing each year of the degree. I have recognised that philosophy now provides a platform and methodology for almost everything I do at work and in life.
