    I'm a law student about to go into my third year at a Russell Group Uni. I was wondering if any of you lovely helpful people have any recommendations for any online courses that I could do in order to boost my CV. Is there anything that you guys put on your applications that you're particularly proud of and you believe that it sets you above the rest? Any volunteering schemes that I could do during my final year that you would recommend?

    Thanks a lot guys

    It is rare to see online courses that really make an application stand out. I am really struggling to think of one anyway.

    Volunteering schemes can be good but they are no different to any other form of extra curricular activity really.

    It is rarely "what you do" in its simpliest sense, but usually more about the specific detail behind it (what you learnt/how you have developed) and then how you spin/sell that on an application form that makes it stand out.
