Hi I am currently researching different university to start for next year, and would I to know the bad thing about the university of Essex (not good). Someone posted the same topic but it was very very long time ago.

Also can easily make friends and become apart of a group.

everyone in the university is either depressed or doesn’t want to interact with you. Greeks and Chinese doesn’t want to talk with you, they all have there own groups, not much diversity. For example, talked to this Greek girl during my first lecture, next day or next lecture she didn’t acknowledge me as I sat behind her.

Only the black community’s seems chilled or relaxed and fun to hang out.

No fun events during afternoon, expect sport tournaments. So you can’t really Socialise or make new friends. They only do some interesting events at night that requires you to be in a group or have a friend

Stores on campus and the restaurants on campus is really really over priced. For example, a small packet of toilet papers will cost £10.00 compare to other stores off campus.

Accommodation was horrible. I lived with 3 females that doesn’t know how to clean. I rarely Interact with my housemates as we don’t share a common interest or do the same course.

They lose Derby Day to UEA every year. Can't imagine going to a Uni with such a poor performance record, 2019 Derby Day half the teams gave up because they knew they wouldn't win or didnt have enough players so forfeited or failed to turn up.

Their systems are confusing and unreliable. As example, I had my first group work assigned to me and they didn’t even put my name on any of the groups lists but on FASER it says I have to hand it in in 9 hours. But I’m not even in a group so lol there goes 10% of my grade on that module
