Is GDL worth it?

    Hi everyone!

    I'm a third year undergraduate in Modern Languages and Literatures (English and Spanish). I'm attending an Italian University but I spent my exchange year in England (Kent University).

    I'm going to graduate next year, around March, and I should achieve a 2:1 or 1st.
    I don't know the conversion in UCAS points of my high school final grade but I got a 96 out of 100 (according to this website https://www.brighton.ac.uk/internati...valencies.aspx it should correspond to 360 UCAS points but I'm not sure about this).

    I've always been interested in law and I can work hard and get good results but I don't know if that's enough.
    Moreover, if a GDL is difficult for English native speakers, will it be impossible for me? I've studied English for almost ten years but I don't know anything about legal lexicon.

    Is there any summer course which could help me before starting the GDL in September? Or do you think it would be better to look for a Summer Internship/volunteer work?

    And last but not least, knowing my academic history, do you think a GDL could be the right choice or just a waste of time and money? Are there any better opportunities for a foreign student? Do you think that a LLB would be better?

    Thank you in advance for your help!
