I originally came to the University of Essex to do my Bachelors degree in Maths and Accounting. Essex is very international and I have made friends from around the world. I helped organise basketball events and other events with the Chinese Society at the University which was a good way to meet people.
Studying my Bachelor degree was good and the professors in the department are very helpful. We work together in groups on a lot of the coursework which I like and it helps me learn. I decided to stay and do my Masters course here too as I have made so many good friends. The course is challenging and I often have a lot of work, but I know it will be valuable for me in the future.
