University experience

Rajpal chose to study at Herts because our location meant he could stay close to family. After achieving the grades, he immersed himself in law. Rajpal has a strong work ethic and one of his favourite memories was achieving a 1st in his EU law exam. Life as a university student was a valuable time and is still a big part of his life today. The guidance of his tutors and the example they set, continue to influence his daily working life. The relationships he built at university set him on an exciting path.

Career progression

Rajpal used his law degree to work in the fraud sector, investigating and analysing financial crime. Rajpal has over ten years of professional experience and has continued to improve his qualifications, becoming an anti-money laundering (AML) expert. He currently works as the director of compliance and risk at Calforex Ltd. His advice to graduates is to ‘network, network, network’, a skill which inspired a business partnership with a friend he met at Herts. The pair run a consultancy firm and have returned to Herts, this time as guest speakers, to deliver a presentation about their experience. Rajpal sees success as a having a happy, healthy family and a stable career.

My studies at Herts shaped my career as I was able to gain an insight as to how the real-world works.
