" It's a quality program overall, and the teachers are competent. The Master of Business Administration course is thorough, intense, and deserving of its AMBA accreditation. My experience was entirely through the online program, so I can't speak for most of on-campus services. I won't be physically visiting the school until graduation. the Student services leave something to be desired, as there is a fair amount of disorganization and miscommunication. "

" The University of Essex is a good school with adequate student support and a great study environment. The lecturers and other staffs are always ready to help and respond when you ask. The school library is also a beautiful place with a lot of materials you might need to make studying easier. "

" Initially, the university provides a great study environment with good facilities and a large library. The student centre is spacious which allows many students to have meetings for group works. Furthermore, most of the lecturers and staffs are friendly and helpful, they will give you advice whenever you ask them. However, the gym (Essex sport) is not quite good as the equipment is not professional. "

" A friendly environment with lots of activities to do on and off of campus. Considering the difficulties we have had to face during Covid as students, the staff have been amazing! Really helpful with any concerns and very responsive whenever we get in touch with them, having plenty of email conversations and zoom calls when needed. The course is very interesting and in-depth, a variety of teaching styles but consistent in how they approach workload and assignments. "
