Why Essex?

With students from 140 countries, Essex is the world in one place.

I didn't study economics at Bachelors level, but I was keen to make a career change. Essex offered the opportunity for me to pursue a Masters in Economics despite not studying it previously, joining a renowned Economics Department.

As an international student, the English Language course I took was perfect, as it boosted my English skills, allowing me to communicate better, study to my full potential, and gain a greater understanding of British culture.

I found that my course has been incredibly useful after graduating. I now work for the NHIS in Seoul and am an ODA expert, helping UHC of underdeveloped countries.
