My economics teacher at home told me what I should expect about coming to the UK and also advised to study at Essex. At university you are more independent so you have to get used to doing more things on your own but I met lots of people quickly, including other Sri Lankans, and that helped me settle in university quite quickly. Essex is a very international university and I've met so many people from all parts of the world.
