Great academic support online and offline.

Tips: Take a Forex card before coming here. It's very helpful. Getting your BRP, a sim card, and a bank account here, should be the first things you do after arriving here. Learn some basic cooking, otherwise you will end up spending a lot more money on food.

A budget ranking university for computer science.

Academic rigor and cultural exploration

Tips: Have no preconceived notions about the country and the people.

Likes (Safety): The law and order maintenance is really great and the people are really friendly and accommodating to international students. The people don't judge and are very friendly. The student council and facult...

Campus and faculty are great at University Of Essex

Tips: Campus and faculty are great. Might have to struggle a bit for relevant work experience so if you can ride that out financially, it’s a good experience. The city is great. Limited options when it comes to hanging out but you can always go to London which isn’t far.

Likes (Indian Food): Plenty of food options in the city and online for Indian/South Asian food. Good takeaway options as well. Might help to learn cooking though as delivery fees are a lot and not something I was used to paying. Other than that, plenty of...

For sure, it is a brand. You have to decide what you want from the University.

Tips: I would say, please participate in all the activities that come your way. Also, the academic curriculum is a blend of remote classes and physical classes. It is also very important to do a lot of self study so that you can improve your base. There's a very big library and a study center with computers, use that as much as you can.

Likes (Student Life): Student life is good. There's a very active student union that brings in new events every now and then. Plenty of societies to join and a good campus with loads of faci...
