Why Essex?

With students from over 140 different countries, Essex is the world in one place. We're top 20 for the most international student community in the THE World University Rankings 2018. 
I first heard about the university from a website about the top 500 universities in the world. I decided to come to Essex on the advice of a friend who obtained a masters degree from the department of Economics.
I have many friends in the university. I met most of my friends in classes, especially during the in-sessional English classes, in the Quays – the students’ residences where I live, and through the societies and clubs that I belong to.
