Hi, I'm Emily and I look after our North American students coming to the University of Essex. Each year we welcome a number of students from Canada to study courses such as Law and Physiotherapy and we are delighted that you are considering joining them. Below is some country specific information that I hope you find helpful and please do contact me with any questions - firstname.lastname@example.org
We will be visiting Canada again in the Spring and would love to meet you. We'll update this page with more details shortly or feel free to email Emily below for more information.
My name is Arran and I am studying a Masters in Psychology here at the University of Essex. I chose Essex because they offer this conversion masters which opens the door to me as a Kinesiology graduate to pursue something completely different! I love the campus and people at Essex. Being close to nature and walking through it every day keeps me feeling invigorated. The way campus is set up also allows for such good socializing in the centre campus squares which I love. I am a part of the Volleyball club here and have met some awesome people involved in all the sports at Essex.
Everyone in the university community is extremely helpful and very friendly. The community really embraces everyone from around the world and provides any support needed. Studying at Essex was an amazing experience because of the people and the support you receive for your studies. I am currently in the process of applying to a few Canadian universities for my Master in Common Law thanks to my 2:1 degree from the University of Essex.
I was able to study alongside students from a wide variety of backgrounds and disciplines. I learned from students who came from backgrounds in politics, policing, the military, and others. I am confident that my studies abroad greatly contributed to my understanding of complex political conflicts and situations. My professors were all deeply committed to human rights and humanitarian law, and they were active practitioners in the field. They helped me to understand the realities of working in areas of conflict and elevated my comprehension of human rights and humanitarian law from the perspective of victims and survivors. My fellow students, who came from all over the world, inspired me to dream big and push beyond myself. Studying at the University of Essex gave me access to a global network of inspiring human rights advocates around the world. No matter what country I landed in, I knew that I would be able to connect with either a former student colleague of mine or someone within the alumni network.
