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.
