During my time at Essex, I joined the Student Union's vTeam and worked with the SU on various projects for ten months. They ranged from helping tutor children at local schools to multiple SU vTeam one-off projects such as helping to set up and marshal the big Bonfire Night celebration events in a nearby town; helping with the annual firework display at the University; and contributing to the International Gala and other festivals. Participating in these projects gave me opportunity to work part-time with the SU. The role gave me valuable opportunities to develop and improve skills such as communication, teamwork, planning, and time management. This experience helped grow my personality and confidence and will remain a part of by CV. Above all, I am using these skills in my newly founded law firm as a Partner.
Various faculty members of the university I worked for in Pakistan got their PhD degrees from Essex; it was from them that I first heard about the university. I decided to come to Essex because I wanted to do a PhD in management control systems in firms operating in developing economies and one of the experts in this field works at the university. The university is a wonderful place with friendly people who come from many diverse cultural backgrounds. If you come to Essex you won’t regret it, believe me!
I really appreciated the outstanding research culture that I was exposed to at Essex. The University has a great library with excellent facilities, while the positive research environment and friendly people within the Department of Mathematical Sciences ensured I enjoyed my stay as a research student at Essex and graduated with very good feelings towards the University.Since leaving Essex, I have joined the University of Peshawar in Khyber Pakhtoon Khwa, Pakistan, as an assistant professor. My studies at Essex have truly helped me in this role, particularly as my PhD is in the same area in which I teach, so I can now supervise other students who are undertaking their own research in this field.
