‘Prof. Andrew Canessa’s passion for social anthropology has taught me critical thinking skills which help me to understand myself and the world. Social anthropology in Andrew’s words is about 'the differences between people, and the difference that those differences make'. The teaching structure of his degree programme was perfect for my style of learning, with regular readings and assessment...

‘Throughout my time at Essex, I have had some amazing lecturers and teachers in the Department of Government. At every step I have been supported and encouraged in my work. Coming into first year, I lacked belief in the work I did but because of the belief that my lecturers had in me and my work, I ended up being nominated to participate in the Government student conference in my second year....

Dr. Gillian Sandstrom inspired me and other students a lot - and I am sure she will continue to do so in the future as well. She is an excellent teacher - and I am sure she makes statistics lectures less scary for most students (which is a module a lot of students struggle with) by being so enthusiastic, helpful and positive. Additionally, she is sincerely interested in every student and what...

‘It’s a virtuous circle. We offered a degree that was based on high quality research and practical experience in the field and it attracted students. Our graduates went out and found employment in those fields and, by word of mouth, spread the news about human rights and humanitarian law at Essex. We get to work with succeeding generations of brilliant students who go out and make the world a...

‘One of the things I like most about working at the University of Essex is the architecture of the old buildings. For people of a certain age, you can sit out in the squares, and you can visualise campus life in the 1960s all over again. You are transported back to that time by several subtle and some not so subtle hints; the Hex, the lines of the buildings fashioned from concrete and of...
