Why Essex?

With students from 140 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. 
My academic adviser in Libya told me about Essex; then I searched the internet to find out more about the university, and I quite liked what I found. In general I think the university is good and also I think that its location provides a good atmosphere for studying.
I am in the first year of the BA in English Language and Linguistics. I am studying Spanish as an optional course and liking it. I am living on campus in South Courts and I think the place is perfect. I am also a member of the Islamic Society, through which I have met most of my friends.
