A love of writing, debating — and arguing her opinion — led Heyreet Mangat to study law at Reading.

"I always knew that I wanted to go to university, but I was conflicted between journalism and becoming a teacher. However, I was part of the debating club - and I realised that I love arguing!"

Human Rights for all

The LLB Law programme at Reading has had the most impact on Mohamed’s knowledge of International Human Rights Law, since it has served as a guidepost both professionally and personally.

“Whether I'm publishing on security, artificial intelligence, or even cybercrime, most of my current and former research focuses on people's privacy. In my final year at Reading, I devoted most of my time to my dissertation on the Death Penalty, which has undoubtedly provided me with a solid research and analytical basis. Because the majority of my study was comparative in nature, writing about other philosophies, laws, and judicial systems will put you in a good position.”

Career Ready


The entire time Mohamed spent at Reading has had a significant impact on his present work path.

“Every module, whether EU Law, International Human Rights Law, or Contract Law, laid the groundwork and served as a guidepost for my professional life. To be more specific, the skills in legal writing and negotiation, and the international perspective I have gained at Reading have prepared me to oversee and manage documents from other jurisdictions, and publish comparative research.”

Incredible Support


Being an international student in such a culturally diverse university, Mohamed was presented with the opportunity of meeting students from various countries and exchanging ideologies from different cultures.

“The LLB students came from all over the world, and from various legal systems. We are still in touch demonstrating the lifelong friendships formed.”

The understanding and continuous support of the faculty in general also facilitated the entire academic settlement process.

“Dedication towards whatever I am working on is unquestionably a quality that the School of Law has inscribed within me. This can only happen when a person receives constant support and candid feedback and advice.
