When I came to Essex, I was impressed at how culturally diverse it was. I felt comfortable straight away. The size of the University was also a plus, I didn't feel crowded or just another student. The University has a reputable Economics department which made my decision all the more easy. One of the things I particularly liked about about the Foundation Year is that I find I can really understand the subjects even though I have never studied them before.
I remember thinking my course would be more academic than practical but it’s been a good balance of both. All my lecturers have real world experience outside of academia, and learning typically involves case studies, group work, and presentations, together with lecture sessions. The level of non-academic support is amazing. The greatest benefit of my Essex experience has been gaining international exposure from learning in a multicultural environment whilst making lifelong connections from all around the world!
