Overall opinion

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.

Quality of course and lecturers

The University of Essex employs some of the top academics in the International Relations field. I was able to learn from some of the leading names and attend student conferences with other field experts through my department. The University of Essex had a great combination of course education, weekly seminars, and informational meetings for a well-rounded educational experience.

University societies and clubs

Essex has so many different societies and clubs to choose from, which is good for almost any interest. If you did not find a society that was suited to you it was very easy to get one started!

University life

University life was amazing. Campus was lively all the time, and there were so many restaurants and things to choose from if students needed some down time from studying. Going to town was also very easy from Essex, and town centre is a great place to shop and go to the cinema. However, for night life campus had the best venues. It was also really awesome to be surrounded by students.

Accommodation

I stayed in University Quays at Essex and I absolutely loved it! I was placed with all postgraduate students, which was perfect for me all year. It was a great environment for studying and far enough away from campus to not be distracted often. But, campus was only a 10 minute walk away from campus so if I needed a quick break it wasn't too long to get there!

Job prospects and careers service

The employability and Career centre at Essex is outstanding. They are so helpful when it comes to providing information on employment, CV instruction, and internship opportunities. They also had workshops often to train students in the skills that would best prepare them for the workplace.
