I was in Bristol from 2011 until 2013 doing my final year LL.B law degree, and after that the Barrister Professional training course.
I treasured those times I had during the fellowship sessions, after the Sunday service. I got to know more local people and also got to have some hot meals, which was super nice given that we international students have to cook for ourselves most the times. The discussion about issues of Christianity helped me to unwind and escape from my studies for a while.
The experience thought me to help and be friendly to people who are strangers to the land. Bristol was a nice and friendly city, and churches like Ebe really welcome the students who are studying in Bristol. I will help to share this spirit of helping/inspiring with others back in my home country.
Studies are important but always remember to also put time aside to mingle and join student or Church events. You are only in UK for a specific amount of time. Make the most of it. - I would suggest joining BISC. That place is just awesome.
I'm now practicing solicitor in the field of property law in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
