Why Essex?

With students from over 140 different countries, Essex is the world in one place. We're top 20 for the most international student community in the THE World University Rankings 2018. 
I was particularly excited to begin studying at Essex because of its excellent academic reputation and first-class facilities. Within my school, I have been provided with a mentor to help me adapt to studying at university level throughout my first year which was very helpful for me. 
Socially I settled in to life at Essex very quickly and now feel very at home. I have built good relationships with members of staff and my fellow students and, as an international student, I have integrated into the strong community atmosphere comfortably. 
Before coming to Essex I didn’t really know what I wanted to do for a career, but studying here has pushed me to reach all of my ambitions and I’m now clear on what I want to do when I graduate
