“I applied to the programme with a long-held ambition of improving financial regulation in my home country of Ukraine. Studying at Leiden Law School was an incredible experience, as it challenged me intellectually and nurtured my research endeavors. Teachers at the programme impressed me with their academic brilliance, outstanding practical experience, and approachable attitude."
"Leiden has proven an important catalyst of my career trajectory. Immediately after graduating (cum laude), I started working as a legal expert at the National Bank of Ukraine. In this job, I helped to draft and adopt two complex pieces of financial legislation dealing with Fintechs and consumer protection. I live by Leiden’s admirable value of integrity to make finance work for every member of our society.”
