    Hello everyone!

    I'm an international student going to study International Law at Nottingham Trent University. I have always wanted to work for UN and been pretty much interested in humanitarian law.

    I wanted to know how hard is it to get a job after graduating with LLB Hons International law? What are the job prospects for me?

    Thank you in advance

    I don't know enough about the UN to comment on that specifically, but I suspect you main issue will be your right to work in the country you are looking to be based in.

    If that's the UK, then it's definitely challenging. You are looking to go into an area that isn't going to be as well paid as others, but is popular, then the chances of finding an organisation willing to support a entry level role with a work permit, or even be able to apply for one on your behalf is going to be more difficult.

    However your job prospects will be far more determined by how proactive you are in pursuing the careers, than the title of your degree. Network, gain work experience, build up your CV with suitable extra curricular activity and there's will all go towards your job prospects.

    The good news is that the main UN agencies are not based in the UK. Whilst UK careers can suffer from institutional biases, preferring Oxbridge and London, UN careers largely do not. Unfortunately, many UN internships do not come with funding. If that is something you can secure, then you should not have much of a problem finding internships and early-career opportunities.
