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. 

We currently have over 80 Turkish students studying here at Essex. We'd love to you welcome you to our global community! We have over 325 Turkish alumni, including playwright M. Murat Ildan.

The department provides a wonderful, friendly environment for study and research. I love the variety of activities such as attending insightful conferences. I am particularly interested in culture, crime and media studies, research on citizenship and identity, and qualitative methods. I find people’s perception of crime and how it has evolved throughout history a very interesting area of study. I really enjoy becoming more knowledgeable within my field and delivering unique and original work.
