Studying at Essex was not simply a life-changing experience; it was beyond mind-blowing, the mixture of great academics alongside the international community at Essex truly presents a phenomenal experience. From the modules’ materials, the feedback sessions, the personal tutors, and mentors; I started to appreciate the quality of education rather than just seeking a bachelor’s degree. Yet I believe that Essex is truly unique in how it doesn’t only encourage but also gives various opportunities to increase their students’ level of employability, during and after their studies.
