Does academic degree matter for your happiness?
For that reason, in order to be able to achieve what mentioned above, a postgraduate degree in International Law, in my opinion, will be the most suitable approach for my academic career. An LLM in International Law is the right path for me since it opens the possibility of continuing my studies at a doctoral level which is something that I really wish to do since I am really passionate about researching issues relating to International Law and developing my own thoughts and ideas on several issues. That said I believe that through my research on how to resolve issues like the ones relating to Cyprus named above, I can have an impact on improving the situation and thus a postgraduate degree is as I consider, an essential and helpful starting point. Furthermore, I want to learn as much as possible on issues that interest me like the law of the sea, humanitarian law and state responsibility thus I am more than confident that a postgraduate degree will indeed equip me with such knowledge. My academic background will indeed help me strive in a postgraduate degree in International Law. Having studied a mixed LLB degree in both Law and Politics, in my opinion, gives a very big advantage. Firstly International Law and Human Rights Law were my favourite subjects throughout the three years of the degree since I found that they closely connected with the issues of Cyprus mentioned above but also because of the gravity and importance of issues relating to those subjects
