Droši varu apgalvot, ka mana pieredze University of Essex līdz šim ir bijusi lieliska. Esmu spējis iegūt zināšanas starptautiskajās attiecības un vienlaicīgi apgūt jaunas valodas, kā arī man ir bijusi iespēja gadu mācīties Meksikā, Tecnológico de Monterrey, vienā no prestižākajām universitātēm Latīņamerikā. 
Balstoties uz manu personīgo pieredzi varu teikt, ka mācību kvalitāte Essex ir ļoti augstā līmenī, kaut gan man nav bijis grūti pielāgoties mācībām Anglijā, jo visi skolotāji ir ļoti pretimnākoši un vienmēr gatavi atbildēt uz maniem jautājumiem. 
Studentu dzīve piedāvā neskaitāmas iespējas pamēģināt pavisam jaunas lietas un iepazīt studentus no visas pasaules.  Manā pirmajā gadā, es dzīvoju vienā no studentu pilsētiņas kopmītnēm “South Towers”. Priekš manis tā bija lieliska izvēle, jo tā bija ļoti draudzīga vide un lieliska iespēja iegūt jaunus draugus. Studentu pilsētiņā ir viss nepieciešamais, lai nevajadzētu doties ārpus tās, tomēr, tajā pašā laikā, ir ļoti viegli doties uz pilsētu, kā arī Londona un Stansted lidosta ir tikai stundas attālumā. 
Es noteikti ieteiktu pieteikties mācīties University of Essex. Esmu ļoti apmierināts ar savu izvēli, jo esmu ieguvis ne tikai vērtīgas zināšanas lekcijās, bet arī darba pieredzi, esmu piedalījies brīvprātīgo darbā, mācījies ārzemēs, ieguvis jaunus draugus un kopumā izbaudījis savu laiku Anglijā.

I thought that Essex would be the most suitable choice for me. I also liked the fact that Essex has a lot of international students. Settling into university life was very easy and a lot of fun. I enjoyed it a lot as the social side of this university is great and you meet new people every day. It was easy to settle into university life academically as well, as the people who work at university are usually helpful and explain and answer students` questions.
During my Freshers’ year I lived on campus in one of the North Towers. Living in a tower was a great experience and I would definitely recommend it to first year students. It is a fun experience because there are so many young people living together and it is very social, and never boring.
If other Latvian students are thinking of applying, they should look forward to studying here and they should enjoy the time at Essex as much as they can. It is a very different experience in a positive way. I doubt that anyone who is social enough would regret coming to Essex because it is a lot of fun socially and academically as well.
