Meil oli palju põhjusi valida õppimiseks Essex’i Ülikooli (University of Essex). Esiteks, meie Ülikooli Õiguse kool (School of Law) on üks tuntumaid maailmas. Õppejõud on kõrgelt kompetentne, toetav ja väga sõbralik. Teiseks, tudengitena siin meil on palju võimalusi osaleda erinevates haridusprojektides ja rahvusvahelistes projektides sellepärast, et meie asjatundlik õppejõud julgustab ja innustab meid õppima ja oma oskusi praktikas kasutama.

Kolmandaks, Essex’i Ülikool on tuntud oma rahvusvahelikkuse poolest. See on nii tore, et siin saad kohtuda inimestega üle kogu maailma! Meie uute sõprade hulgas on erinevate kultuuride esindajad, kellega suheldes me saame oma maailmavaadet laiendada. Veebruaris saab osaleda ka One World Essex nädala sellistel üritustel, nagu rahvusvahelisel kontserdil või rahvusvahelise toidu festivalil. Meile meeldib ka see, et meie Ülikoolis on abi ja toetuse osutamine väga heal tasemel ning inimesed naeratavad ja on heatahtlikud. Meile meeldib elu Essex’is!

Hear from our Estonian students 

The best way to settle in socially is to join societies and sports clubs. I joined the Nordic Society in my first year and ran the society in my second year and I am also a proud member of the Essex Volleyball Club. I have met a lot of amazing people through these clubs and made loads of new friends.
I enjoy living in England and experiencing a different culture, but since the mindset and lifestyle are not that much different from Estonians it is not that hard to make yourself feel like at home. Although sometimes walking around the University you might forget being in England since the University is so international! If you have found a degree at Essex that is right for you and you are brave, independent and outgoing and up for studying in English and meeting a lot of new people then Essex is the right place for you.

I chose to come to Essex because the University looked impressive and I heard some good reviews from other students. I settled into life at Essex without problems and I now work for the Students’ Union which has helped me to meet new friends. I am currently living off campus, in a nearby town called Wivenhoe, just 10 minutes’ walking distance from the university. England can be expensive, but I have my part time job which pays for my accommodation, and the university is very supportive. I would recommend Essex to Estonian students as it is a friendly campus with almost everything you need.
