I was attracted to the University of Essex for a number of reasons. What was really important to me though, was the fact that it highlights the component of entrepreneurship in its courses. The course itself has provided me with the opportunity to develop invaluable skills for my future career. In addition to my subject-specific knowledge, I have also improved my communication skills and my ability to socialise and network. The project-based elements of the course have really sparked my interest, particularly in new venture creation. I am very grateful for the departmental staff who are always on hand to provide support, guidance and encouragement.
