Why Essex?

With students from over 140 different countries, Essex is the world in one place. 
One of our notable alumni from Brunei is Paduka Osman bin Pengiran Haji Patra, the Permanent Secretary for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade in Brunei.
Whenever I think of Essex, I can only think of wonderful memories. The environment and community was so friendly and welcoming that I was able to adapt very easily and quickly. Essex Students' Union offers a variety of activities and hosts many different events. Being a multicultural university, one of my most favourite events was One World Essex (Cultural Week). I chose the University mainly because of the modules they offer for my course and I am glad I made that choice. With the encouraging and incredibly dedicated department staff and lecturers, I was able to graduate with a BA in Linguistics (Hons). This degree has helped me tremendously in my path as an aspiring Speech and Language Therapist (SLT). Returning to Brunei after graduating, I was able to work as an SLT assistant for 2 years and now I am pursuing my second degree in Speech Science. I will forever be thankful for the wonderful experience Essex has given me.
