Joseph Nii Tettey Ashong, from Ghana, graduated in 2016 with LLM Energy Law and Policy.

He currently works in a fuel and logistics company - also Ghana's strategic reserves holder. Mainly working in the Procurement and Supply Chain, Joseph deals with Procurement Planning and Strategy.

Having received his LLM from Dundee, Joseph has also since started his LLB and will soon graduate and pursue professional training to become a lawyer.

Joseph was part of an Educational-reality show organised in Ghana which was supported by CEPMLP. As winner, he received the prize of a one-year Energy Program in Dundee and Joseph was delighted to come to Dundee.

Joseph says, “Studying at the University of Dundee was insightful and introduced me to a world of friends across the globe. The university has an international reputation and attracts students from all over the world.”

“The teaching faculty at CEPMLP are top leaders in their field. The library was such a useful place and the easy access to both physical and online materials was quite impressive.”

“The best things about the course were the regular interactions with industry professionals. And, as the course was also largely research-based, it opened me up to a whole new level of knowledge in research and academic writing.”

Joseph thought Dundee was fairly inexpensive to live in and says it was good to have a taste of Scottish life.

“My favourite memory is when I attended a ceilidh, where I wore a kilt for the first time. I also miss the UK, generally and the many opportunities it offered.”

Studying the International Energy Law and Policy LLM gave Joseph a very useful insight into the energy industry.
