"I was intrigued by the challenge of studying abroad - I was intrigued by the challenge, I like learning new things, I like exploring different places."
When our students consider working, volunteering or taking part in any opportunity abroad, we provide guidance on what direction to take and where they can go. We also help organise their your time abroad, and help students get prepared through pre-departure workshops.
Mariona Nogueras Piferrer spent six weeks volunteering in Bangalore, India. Through the Vicente Ferrer Foundation she taught English and soft skills to University students.
We welcome students from around the world for a period of study abroad at Essex and aim to offer you an outstanding international experience. You can join our international community of original thinkers and gain something unique within an academically challenging environment.
