Be a lawyer - Megan prepares for a career in law

Student stories 19 December 2019

“I would definitely recommend CATS to anybody who wants more independent living, to be surrounded by a bunch of different people from different backgrounds and especially if you want to get an English Sixth Form experience with the addition of a multi-cultural community.”

Megan from Hong Kong is currently studying English, History and Economics A levels at CATS Cambridge. She hopes to study a law degree in the UK and shares her experiences of preparing for university in the UK:

On applying to study law at some of the top UK universities Megan said:

“I received a lot of support this year, especially because I’m looking to apply to Russell Group universities and Oxbridge. I received help preparing for my LNAT test as part of the Key Professions Programme. LNAT is the Law National Admissions test that all law universities require if you are applying for a law degree.”

Megan also praised the higher education support she has received so far at CATS:

“I’ve also received help on my UCAS personal statement. This is a document that presents why you would be a good fit for the university that you are applying to. I received lots of help on that and it’s been great because my teachers have been so supportive in helping me dig up material that I can put in my personal statement.”

She talked about the range of universities that visit CATS to speak directly with students:

“CATS has been super helpful by inviting lecturers from other universities to come and talk to us about the different subjects we could study in the future and how to apply to them. Every university is different and every university looks for a specific thing. It’s important for us to know what we need to present them with.”

Megan is just one of many students who is pursuing her education at CATS Cambridge, where we offer a range of courses. Find out more about CATS A level Programme and prepare for top universities with support from our Key Professions Programme.
