    Hi,
    So, I have got quite few offers from different universities, however I cannot make up my mind to firm my choices yet. I have got Essex in the top list and Goldsmith and Middlesex. Just remind you that I'm planning to do BSc Computer science.

    The only thing is bugging me, the location of these universities. I really wanna go to Essex but it is out of London and I don't know how will I cop with new quit place.
    Please any suggestion or motivational speech will be very helpful towards my final decision.

    Thank you all.

    Hi, I am a current student at the University of Essex but currently on my year abroad in Australia. The campus at Essex is a great place to meet people and socialise, you will never be bored as there are always events on and things to do around the campus. The campus itself is lively and like a community. There are sports teams and societies which are free to join so that is a great way to meet new people!

    The town centre is just a bus ride away but most things you need on a regular basis are on campus so there is little need to go into the town centre. There are bars and a club on campus with regular events on during the week as well as weekends.

    The University of Essex has been voted 2nd best in the UK for student satisfaction so as you can see a lot of students enjoy their time there. I am living in a city now in Australia so I have got used to the city vibe but I am still so excited to go back to Essex uni at the end of this year!

    If you have any other questions feel free to ask ^Sam

    Speaking of witch, I'm planning to go to Japan for an year aboard as I put down 4 year BSc Computer science course. Do you have any information regarding year aboard and how it works? As I heard they only selecte few students after 2nd year based on their good grade. so although I chose an year aboard, it will no make difference.
    How's life Australia?

    Thanks pal.

    Whether you study abroad or not depends on what mark you get in your first year. The process is you choose 3 top choices of universities from a list of that the University of Essex has connections with after you have researched into them. Which one you get given depends on your first year mark and also what uni is good for your course. I got my second choice of uni which is in Melbourne, Australia and the experience has been amazing!! There are a number of spaces to go on year abroad and there are a certain number of spaces at each university.

    I hope that helps a bit! You'll have a great time! ^Sam
