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. 
From the very first moment when I came to Essex I was approached with friendly smiles and people who made my experience so valuable and unforgettable. The members of staff, teaching personnel and fellow students are completely supportive and I have a chance to communicate with people from all over the world. Besides that, as the university is campus-based it is really convenient how you can access most of the facilities within minutes and there are a 165 different societies and sport clubs so everyone has the chance to choose the one that best reflects their needs. If I had to decide whether to study in Essex once again I would definitely do that without much consideration!
