Hello! We’re Kristin and Anthony from the University of Leicester. Kristin’s based in Malaysia and Anthony is in Taiwan (although originally from London). Kristin studied Law at Leicester and is keen to share her experience on how she chose what to do after high school… and some advice she wishes she had before she embarked on the journey! Anthony is fast becoming a perpetual student, currently studying his third degree with Leicester. He’s spent the last few years advising students from all over the world on the options available to them and hopefully knows exactly what to do (and what not to do) when thinking about your future.
