It depends on what you mean by a 'good uni'. What means good to you? A well regarded program? Good graduate employment rates? Busy night life? Quiet night life?

It is a smaller campus, so if you wanted a giant one, that's right out for one.

As in, does it have a good reputation? Good graduate prospects? Student satisfaction?

We're number 2 for Student Satisfaction (UEA being 1) and just about in the top 40, number 39 I believe. But hey, still top 40!

Much depends also on the specific course (different depts, different rankings/reputation)

Given the reasons why Marina Warner resigned from the faculty, as detailed in the London Review of Books, the answerr must be no, it is run by bullies who do not care about education.

Yes, Marina Warner made it clear in an interview that the University is only aiming at Profit Maximising. "overcrowded classes, inflexible timetables " etc are some of signs of criticism openly disclosed by the famous writer.

Really a shame to the University.


I was considering studying Law at this University but now I am totally clueless about what to do

Can anyone help?

It really doesn't matter what the school has turned into. It's all about your determination to learn and bring out the best in your self

What do you mean by Joke ? Should I really decline the offer as soon as possible because I am very serious about joining a good Law School.

is your first language english?
can you read powerpoints?

Then if you do law at essex, a first is quite easy to obtain

Academic integrity= none, but at least they have a law fair


Well, I reckon that a first is first. No matter how its attained. And the Law fair is an excellent opportunity to grab a job.

Its perfect for me.

By the way, what were your A level grades? Mine are ABB. Do you think Essex Law course is at par with my grades ?

I also have an offer from Bangor University.

[QUOTE=DIN-NARYU-FARORE;50412109]My alevels were below AAB, but im on a first and i hand in all my essays last minute like a joker. still get firsts

The uni is a joke but if you make the contacts whilst youre there you can land a decent job afterwards. still only 40% are in a professional role after graduation[/QUOTE


Thanks for being so helpful with your reviews about the University. I also have an offer from Bangor University , do you think they are better than Essex?

im doing straight law

some classes are very crowded. from what i can see About a third of law students are british

is classes are too crowded then how do you manage to clear your doubts ? Do you get enough support from your teachers?

Unfortunately, I applied during clearing and didn't get time to visit University for open day. What are your future plans? Looking at how competitive the legal Market is , I am quite anxious joining the course.
