Essex Abroad on social media:
"Essex was such a great experience. I was surprised at just how welcoming a community could be! Studying abroad was a decision that I made on a whim and landing at University of Essex was probably an incredible turn of fate. I had the opportunity to expand my studies from psychology to philosophy and poetry, as well as the opportunity to play football and basketball on campus. Being able to travel to London on weekends and France when I had a break from studies was spectacular! I can't be more grateful to have such a good experience"
