Hear from our students

Richard David Egozov
Germany

"I chose to study at RGSL because of the international community and all the benefits that come from it. Another important point was that at RGSL you are part of RGSL instead of being just a student, and that was very appealing to me.

Katariina Komulainen
Finland

“I found RGSL after 4 months of Googling and having idea of third-degree in law outside of Finland but within a reasonable distance. RGSL studies are extremely student orientated. In Finland, the emphasis is on conservative and subject-based teaching and learning whereas RGSL has adopted agile and continuous improvement in their core functions that enable the student satisfaction to be high at a constant rate.”

Seema Murtuza
Bangladesh

"What made RGSL stand out was its interdisciplinarity. I will forever be indebted to RGSL for the opportunities, experience and friendships it has enabled. RGSL is more than a school, it is a community, a family of students, academics and lecturers alike who are open and willing to go one step beyond what is required; and it is that one extra step that makes RGSL a RGSL.
