Piyara BSC PSYCHOLOGY
“ Both lecturers and staff are very helpful. Moreover, the Students' Union provides many interesting societies for students, so they can make lots of new friends here. There are green spaces, a modern gym and nice accommodation. It is convenient to go to the town centre. I would highly recommend University of Essex. ”
Chanapha MA TEFL/TESOL
“ All my lecturers have real world experience outside of academia, and learning typically involves case studies, group work, and presentations, together with lecture sessions. The level of non-academic support is amazing. The greatest benefit of my Essex experience has been gaining international exposure from learning in a multicultural environment whilst making lifelong connections from all around the world! ”
