"Before I came to Essex, I was already working in the field of human rights in Indonesia. The human rights programmes at Essex have been very famous for its reputation. There quite a lot alumnus who studied human rights at Essex in Indonesia. So I come across Essex’s name very often.In terms of academic life, I really enjoyed it a lot. I did have troubles in the beginning with the reading and writing essays. As a non-native speaker, writing an academic essay in English was not that easy. But I managed to sort that out. I scheduled my daily activities for reading to help me cope with the reading list. And most importantly, all the lecturers are very open and helpful to assist us with this sort of issue."Ricky won a British Council Alumni Award in the Social Impact category in 2018 in recognition of his work in the field of human rights and especially his campaigning to end capital punishment in Indonesia.
