En mi experiencia la Universidad de Essex ha colmado mis expectativas. Como presidente de la sociedad latinoamericana he conocido a personas no solo de Uruguay sino del resto de Latinoamérica. En el área de Ciencias políticas, la Universidad está catalogada como unas de las mejores del Reino Unido. En cualquiera que sea la carrera que elijas el nivel es muy bueno. La cantidad de personas del todo el mundo que vienen a estudiar a Essex es increíble Tiene una gran biblioteca en la cual hay una gran variedad de temas y gran disponibilidad de libros. De no tener el libro puedes hablar con personas del staff y tenerlo en muy poco tiempo! Para los que les gusta las películas, en la biblioteca hay una gran variedad de películas en DVD. Se puede vivir dentro del campus o fuera de él. Personalmente prefiero vivir dentro del campus ya que aparte de tu curso podes conocer a muchas personas en los diferentes lugares que la universidad dispone. Poder compartir tradiciones, perspectivas del mundo que vivimos e incluso probar comidas que jamás había probado antes. La ubicación de Colchester es ideal porque está a una hora de bus de Stansted (aeropuerto que conecta con toda Europa) y a una hora en tren del centro de Londres. Y si te gustan los pueblos puedes visitar Wivenhoe  a 5 min. caminando del campus en donde se puede conseguir Dulce de Leche.
