Wonderful International Community
My educational experience at Essex as been wonderful. I have had all of the support that I needed to get the most out of my education. Essex is super affordable, and campus life is great for almost any personality. The best piece of advice I can give about Essex is to be ready for a truly internationally diverse university, and be prepared to learn from the best and build lifelong relationships with people from all corners of the world. - read more...

Great life at Essex
Essex is great. I've got really good friends, and although academically my first year was not very stimulating (hardly any work!), this year I'm finding it really interesting. It offers a great, independent, enjoyable life. - read more...

Quality educational standards - fantastic campus atmosphere
I would recommend Essex to any prospective students because the atmosphere is outstanding - adding to and enhancing the whole experience. Essex is a campus university, meaning that everything is all on one site - teaching rooms, accommodation, research facilities and leisure services. There are so many services onsite it would be impossible to list them all here, but I think Essex pretty much has everything covered from sport to culture and socialising to laundry. I would recommend anyone thinking of coming to Essex to come to an Open Day and check it out. If you've already accepted an offer to Essex then my advice is not to miss Freshers' Week - it is the most important and informative event you will attend in your first term. It will help you to familiarise yourself with the campus and facilities and departments; try out new things (food, drink, clubs, sports); there will be advice available on every aspect you could possibly imagine (from Student's Union to Careers advice, Student Support and financial advice); sign up for university clubs and societies; and most importantly you will be amongst great company - thousands of students in exactly the same boat as you! Not only will this help you get over the initial nerves and excitement, but will give you the opportunity to break the ice with your fellow freshers in one of the many social events happening in Freshers Week. - read more...
