I’m looking forward to sharing and learning about law with the experienced professors at King’s College and my future course mates from across the world

Vivian Oh, a student at ATC, Kuala Lumpur, is the winner of the Malaysian Laws Scholarship. This is awarded annually by the University of London Undergraduate Laws Programme to the Malaysian student who scores the highest marks in Year One of the Bachelor of Laws (LLB). The scholarship scheme has operated since 1994.

The Scholarship will allow Vivian to complete her degree by studying at King's College London.

Vivian chose to study for a University of London degree in Malaysia as it provides a high quality yet affordable education.  She says: “This is especially valuable for law students as the LLB is governed by six prestigious University of London Colleges which are committed to provide the highest quality education possible.”

Vivian applied for the scholarship as she had for a long time dreamt of reading law in the UK. She says: “I viewed winning the Malaysian Law Scholarship as a golden, perhaps a lifetime opportunity to pursue my dream and deepen my knowledge of Law, by studying in the country where the English Common Law system was developed.”

Vivian credits her success in part to her parents and lecturers who guided her in her studies. “Without these people, I would not have gone this far. This is indeed a one in a million opportunity.”

Vivian is very excited about the prospect of a life-changing experience living and studying in London. “I am looking forward to being exposed to a wholly different culture and it will certainly be an eye opener for me to live in a multicultural society. London is one of most beautiful cities in the world with countless historical buildings which I will certainly visit. I’m also looking forward to sharing and learning about law with the experienced professors at King’s College and my future course mates from across the world.”

Vivian wants to specialise in human rights. “Human rights is a challenging field, worthy of detailed study as there is so much of complexity, uncertainty, and inconsistency.”
