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. 
Brazilian student Raiza Ponticelli

Raíza was one of 30 women on the Women of the Future scholarship scheme which helps to equip and inspire women from around the world. 
At Essex Raíza felt she had joined an international community which would support her studies every step of the way. 
“What impressed me the most was the University's organisation and how everything works as it is supposed to work and staff are always willing to help.”
She now hopes to study for a PhD in American Literature and become an academic with expertise in Latin American Literature. 
“Essex was one of the few UK universities to grant scholarships to international students. In a time of Brexit, this proves that Essex is a university for literally everybody, regardless of your economic, social, religious background."
