I took a pre-sessional course here and I think that this course was very beneficial to prepare myself for Master’s Degree. Every tutor tried to support students to think critically. Now, I am a current student in MA TEFL/TESOL. This course is very intensive and the lecturers encourage students to interact in class. They are also pleased to answer the many questions that students send them by e-mail. Both lecturers and staff are very helpful. Moreover, the Students' Union provides many interesting societies for students, so they can make lots of new friends here. There are green spaces, a modern gym and nice accommodation. It is convenient to go to the town centre. I would highly recommend University of Essex.
