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. 

Did you know that one of our notable alumni Farish Ahmad Noor, who is now a Senior Fellow at Nanyang Technological University, completed his PhD at Essex in 1997 in the field of governance and politics.
I loved the campus - it's such an inspiring and friendly environment, with a truly international student population. Learning with and from people from all over the world gave me international exposure, which I really believe has helped my career. At Essex, I gained skills in software development, project management, and IT solutions architecture, and now, after working my way up from software developer to a Business Information Security Officer for Bank of America Merrill Lynch, I can fully appreciate all of the opportunities I had at Essex to get where I am today.
