Why Essex?

 

Bok, we are delighted that you're considering studying with us.

Essex has a long history of welcoming students from Croatia to join our diverse community of over 135 different nationalities. Over a third of our student population are from outside of the UK so you’ll feel right at home.

Karla Drpic
I chose Essex primarily because studying International Relations and Modern Languages seemed like a perfect fit for my interests, but also due to its location in England, and the vibrancy and youthfulness of the Colchester campus. My favourite memory of Essex so far is being at the Freshers' Week for the first time and experiencing so many things in so little time; from settling into my room on campus and exploring so many different stalls of clubs and societies in the squares, to attending introductory meetings within my departments and getting lost in the hallways of the campus. I'm a member of the Model United Nations Society and spent five days at the EuroMUN conference in Maastricht, Netherlands as part of the Essex delegation.
