Coming from Vietnam where everything and everyone is different from the UK, it was quite daunting to adapt to a new place. However, I soon learnt that I didn’t need to worry as the support I received from Essex Pathways Department allowed me to settle in with ease. I had a wonderful year studying my International Year One in Business – the quality of teaching from experienced and enthusiastic lecturers provided a solid foundation for my current studies.
