BA Accounting, 2007
"I chose Essex because of the 'community' feeling I felt from walking around
the Colchester Campus. I felt very much at home at Essex and every time I visit
the campus now it feels like I never left.
Essex Business School is lucky to be housed in a superb modern building, one
that it certainly deserves. Whenever I had a problem or needed some advice and
support, the School was there for me.
Since Graduation I have been training for the Chartered Accountant exams. I
found that certain modules had greater relevance for this, such as Law and
Management Accounting modules. I would recommend these for anyone who wishes to
study Accounting after Graduation.
Living on campus is something that everyone should try. Having a degree is
amazing, but the experiences you have whilst living on campus are unlikely to
ever be re-lived. The hub of the Colchester Campus has to be the SU Bar. Almost
all of my nights began there. However, no night out on campus would be complete
without a trip to SX-press for chips before staggering home!
I would give anyone going to Essex three pieces of advice: do not suffer in
silence if you are having difficulties, there is always someone around to help;
say â€˜yes' to as many social invitations as possible; and lastly, concentrate on
your work but make time to chill out and relax too, it'll help your studies in
the long run if you find the right balance."
