    Yeah I got that too, hopefully the new year will bring us both good news! Good luck ! Are you from around London, I'm hoping to apply kings too. Also applied to Cardiff, Queen Mary and Portsmouth! I'd just be happy to get in anywhere tbh. Where's your first choice?

    Hi I'm applying for BSc Psychology with predicted BCD, I've put it as my first option because i really want to go here, but i was wondering how lenient they are with entry requirements?
    I got in with CCC and know people on Bsc Psychology that got in with CDD, so don't worry!

    Hi, yes parents usually attend but it's up to the student I brang my mum for my biomed interview and during the interview time the parents went off and had a tour of the department. However not all students brought parents but I'd say most did. Hope that helps

    Thanks! I know it's dumb but it's just been worrying me a bit, if I turned up with my parents and nobody else did I'd seem like a child, you know? Anyway, thank you! xx

    Hi Lea!

    I'm currently in my third year studying English Literature at Essex and although I can't offer you any specific details or opinions on your course, I can answer any questions about Essex in general! So if you have any concerns about the university itself I'd be happy to help!

    Also, it might be a good idea to join our Facebook university page as you will be able to post on there to ask for advice on your course as there will be current students on there currently studying your course who can give you more information than I can! (Link below)

    Hi Jess,

    thank you so much for your answer! Yes, indeed, I've got some questions:
    Are you from Colchester/Essex or did you move there? Is it good for living? Do you live on the campus? And are the facilities nice? And are there nice places to go out? I will visit the university as soon as I hear something from Newcastle.
    Thank you!!

    Hiya!

    I know I'm not Jess but I thought I could reply to some of your questions
    I'm in my second year at the University of Essex studying Psychology.
    I'm from Colchester, it's a lovely place to live! I don't live on campus, I privately rent a flat near the train station in Colchester.
    The facilities on campus are great. The accommodation on campus is really nice, I only chose to not live on campus as I live with my boyfriend who isn't a student. There are lovely places to go out, on campus there are restaurants, bars and a club. I personally prefer to go into the town, there are lots of bars and pubs in town which is more my thing than clubs. However, there are clubs in town too Colchester does have lots of nice restaurants and the town is really pretty.

    Feel free to ask anything else
    Natalie.

    Hiya, I study at the university of Essex and although I personally don't study that course, one of my best friends does so I can share her opinion of it with you, She has said countless times just how much she adores her course and how they really teach interesting topics and she loves being able to choose some of her modules. The one thing she can find challenging at times is the essay writing but as long as she plans from ahead she manages it fine. One final thing she said is that she loves how interactive the classes are and how they let her really express her opinions on different matters.
    I hope this helps!
