I chose Essex as it seemed to be a nice and friendly environment. I have a lot of fantastic memories of my time at Essex. My time in Moscow stands out when I went there for a term to do a module about Meyerhold and biomechanics. It was a fantastic opportunity! To any Swedish students considering Essex I would say do your research! Talk to other students who have done the course you are thinking of, to make sure you know what you are getting. A great thing with the East 15 Acting School is that you get the opportunity to see other parts of the world whilst studying.
I was interested in continental philosophy and when I researched the Essex philosophy department I recognised a couple of the members of faculty from books I had read. I then learnt that Essex was ranked no.1 in the country for continental philosophy which was the main reason I chose Essex over the London universities.Making great friends and being taught new things by world-leading researchers will always stick in my memory. To any Swedish students considering studying at the University of Essex I say do it. Also, it's really easy to get in to London if you want to explore.
