What our students say
MA International Relations
"There were two main reasons for deciding to come to Essex. The first was the reputation of
the Department of Government, the best department in the study of
politics in the United
Kingdom and one that is also widely recognized overseas. The second reason was because I
had heard the University was one of the most internationally diverse, and I was looking
forward to sharing my academic experiences with people from different contexts and backgrounds.
Being here, I can say that one of the best experiences is meeting all the other students
enrolled in my courses and having to work with them in projects or discussions about the
topics we were seeing. I also got to know, through them, different styles of reasoning
and approaches to solve different kinds of problems. And the lecturers are, undoubtedly,
some of the best in their field. Most impressively, I left many of the seminars discussing
what we had just seen with some of my fellow students and was eager to learn more next session.
My knowledge has been greatly increased by what I have learned here. I have taken courses in
statistical analysis with reliable open-source software, something which is valuable in
many fields. I have also deepened my theoretical thinking and critical analysis, which is
valuable not only for career prospects but also for life in general.
Finally, about the campus itself, I find it to have a great atmosphere, especially the
Lakeside, which is a beautiful place to watch sunsets from. The library also has many
valuable books and journals in many interesting research areas.
This has been, undoubtedly, a very fulfilling experience and I would recommend it to
anyone who is interested in politics to study here."
