All this week we are celebrating the achievements of some of our students who are graduating in the class of 2018.
Sofie Samuelsson (MA Linguistics) has the honour of being our 100,000 graduate. She is currently working at Universal Web Design, based at the University’s Knowledge Gateway research and technology park, as a search engine optimisation specialist.
“I’ve only been working here for a few months, but I love it,” said Sofie. “I get to combine my love for writing with research skills I learnt at Essex and the ever-changing digital market. I also get to learn new techniques and tricks every day so I’m really enjoying it.”
As for her experience studying at Essex, she added: “I met some great people that I’m still close to today. I really liked the varied modules and the Languages for All option was great. It was also a beautiful campus where you had everything you needed.”
“Being a graduate of Essex has given me an amazing Masters on my CV. Linguistics is highly recommended at Essex and so it is great that I got my degree from here and that I did so well.
“I also like that I’ll always have this connection to Colchester through the University. It’s given me great connections for the future.”
