"The programme was excellent. I met so many amazing people and had such an incredible time learning so many new things: the experiences that I had I will never forget and will help not only my employability in the future but also with my degree and personal skills. The support I received from Essex abroad in terms of funding was also massively helpful as it provided me with this opportunity of a lifetime and I will be forever grateful”
