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. 
A friend of mine who studied at Essex recommended it to me, and because it has one of the best language and linguistics departments in the UK I decided to come to do a Masters degree here.
I am finding my course very interesting and I am really enjoying it. I share a flat in the Quays with other postgraduate students, some of whom are now my friends. I have also met friends through the Islamic Society and the volleyball club. I would strongly advise anyone to come to Essex because it has an excellent academic reputation and it offers a great environment for study.
