"Through ICLS I was
able to accomplish what many struggle to do alone - get my LLB from UOL
International Programmes. The help and guidance I received from actual
University of London tutors was what made this possible. Anyone thinking about
pursuing a degree with UoL should consider ICLS. The inability to properly
answer exam questions is the most common cause of failure and ICLS provides what
the University cannot - feedback and criticism of writing technique when
attempting an examination question. The lectures are also an asset to anyone who
struggles to read and retain an abundance of reading material. Thanks to ICLS I
am now a UOL graduate, and couldn't be prouder!"
