Abigail Bate - BSc Economics

I would like to become an ambassador to encourage those who were in my situation ( mature student) to take the leap and pursue their higher education with UoL. I also believe that a UoL degree offers an opportunity to obtain a high quality education and to flourish for women in the middle east who may be faced with barriers to pursuing a campus education.
Having been through an entire degree program myself as a fully independent student, I would be able to offer guidance to those who wish to pursue a degree in Kuwait ( or neighbouring states ) where there are no available teaching institutions ( excluding Dubai). I have set up and taken exams with my local branch of the British council for many years and would be able to offer help in that department if needs be.

Adil Ali - Bachelor of Laws

Adil Ali - Bachelor of Laws (LLB)

I am a professional with over 18 years of combined experience in public management consultancy, international business operations management and aviation. My diverse educational and work experience has stimulated a profound interest in the law. I graduated with a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) qualifying law degree in November 2019 and recently embarked on the Legal Practice Course and Master of Laws (LLM) in England as a career change. My work experiences have attracted me to commercial law with a desire to eventually focus upon international aviation and transportation law, of which I am confident that I can be an asset to a leading law firm and by extension the legal fraternity.
I would like to offer insights on my experiences gained in work and study life to current and prospective students, particularly in the fields of business and law. Having studied without institutional support while transitioning to life in a new country, I have formulated study and personal strategies which enable a non-UK person to grasp fundamentals of the commercial and legal fields in the UK, which have proven essential in understanding and applying the substantive material of the coursework. Above all, I have previously trained and mentored students in another vocational field (aviation) and would like to leverage this to benefit those at the university level.

Muhammad Muneeb Qadir - LLB Laws

Advocate Muhammad Muneeb Qadir - LLB Laws

Having completed 2 qualifications via the University of London's distance learning programmes, I'm keen to play an active role in facilitating current and prospective students of the University of London, drawing from my own experience as an alumnus.
Students may find it challenging to pursue studies through distance learning especially more so in these challenging times when the world is faced with a global pandemic. In these circumstances, my previous experiences of remote learning can inspire others to find the University of London's distance and flexible learning programmes accessible. In addition, since I have been teaching University of London's Laws Programme students for the past couple of years, I further understand the challenges and limitations that students face when approaching their studies and the skills that I have acquired through my work can therefore be utilised further in facilitating the University's students.
In addition to being a lawyer and a teacher, I am also a political commentator appearing on local and international electronic media to provide my analysis on issues pertaining to current affairs and I have also written various op-eds in Pakistan's leading newspaper 'The News International' on a diverse range of issues such as Brexit, international relations and human rights.
Some of the issues I can help prospective students with include:
1)The approaches to be adopted towards studying for a UK qualification;
2) Balancing between studies and family/job commitments;
3) How to access textbooks and the online library particularly for research purposes

Ahmed Mirza - MSc Professional Accountancy

Ahmed Mirza - MSc Professional Accountancy

I am a Kuwait-born Pakistani national, currently residing in Kuwait. My father passed away when I was in my early teenage years. Unfortunately, since then, I did not have a father-figure around. I began working at the age of 17. I obtained my Bachelor's degree alongside the employment. After that, I completed my ACCA qualification, albeit, delayed due to personal circumstances. I also completed the CPA Australia qualification with ACCA.

Then I got the opportunity to get my Master's degree from University of London, thanks to the collaboration between University of London and ACCA in forming this degree programme for ACCA students, affiliates and members. I have proudly framed the degree and shelved it in my office.

I realise how hard it is not to have anyone around to discuss one's career plans. Therefore, I actively volunteer my time to guide people in accountancy education and career related matters. I have openly invited my connections on Linkedin to reach me for any questions they have and for guidance they may require. I am glad to have helped those who approached me so far on ACCA qualification and MSc in Professional Accountancy degree questions. I look forward to being of assistance to the accountancy students with the best of my knowledge and capabilities.
