Why Essex?

Helló, we are delighted that you're considering studying with us.  With students from 140 countries, Essex is the world in one place, where internationalism is central to who we are and what we do. By living and learning in our global academic community, our students enjoy a richness of experience that extends far beyond the lecture theatre. 
I have so many nice memories of Essex but I have to say my best was the Fresher’s week, especially the fair on that Saturday. It was amazing. Before I started my course I had some questions and worries and I didn’t know what would happen. During the first week all my questions were answered, all of my worries disappeared and I met quite a lot of people there. I strongly recommend applying to any course at this university because it is one of the best institutes of education in England. The university has students from all over the world and there is a great opportunity to make international relationships. This is important to me as these friendships and contacts will change my whole life. The highest quality academic background is provided with a great amount of support from the university. I am proud to represent Hungary and to have studied at the University of Essex.
