Online Learning LLM Transnational Oil, Gas and Energy Law graduate, Laura Alakija


Even though you’re studying from a distance and you seem to be the only one out there, there is a lot of people on the same platform, they’re students who will respond to questions you have, they’re teachers who respond to questions. There’s the whole support the online advisor, the finance department everybody is always available to provide support to respond to your questions, to give you directions. So it’s pretty easy if you’re considering an online programme at Derby, just go for it. I think that I made a lot of real progress professionally. Looking back at the work I did in my first trimester and the one I did at the last trimester when I compare them, I actually see the progression that I made with the studies so I’m very happy about that. The degree has already been helpful to me because I found a lot of information I could use with my work on a day to day basis so from the very beginning as I learned new things it was easy for me to apply that to work so to be honest I’ve been applying my knowledge from day 1 and now that all of it is over when I go into a transaction there are some things that pop up that are really familiar because I’ve spent all of this time studying so it’s been useful so far from day 1. Who will you be waving at from the stage? I travelled with my husband so I’ll be waving very vigorously from the stage at him and probably at everybody else who’s sharing today with me who has put in a lot of work to get here. What does your husband think of you and what you’ve achieved? Well, I hope that he thinks I’m very brilliant and hardworking and I can do a thousand things at a time. Well that’s my expectation. Thank you to everybody at Derby. Thank to my husband and all my family for support and congratulations to everybody who’s graduating today.
