“Having completed my undergraduate psychology degree in Nairobi and having worked with internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Kenya, I was very keen to further my study in a subject area related to the care of refugees. The Centre for Psychoanalytic Studies at the University of Essex offered the exact course I was looking for in such a specialist subject area.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my course so far, and it has been great to work with and learn from the lecturers at the University who are experts in the area. All of my lectures and seminars are insightful, transferring the expertise and knowledge of the individuals teaching us to help us learn.
The campus has such a festive atmosphere; there are people of all ages from all over the world all united in the desire to learn. The campus is set in beautiful parkland, and I really enjoy sitting by the lake in the sunshine, it is a great place to relax after the hustle and bustle of classes.
The staff within the Centre for Psychoanalytic Studies are very accommodating, and they have been extremely helpful ever since my first point of contact with the University. The best part so far has to be my current work placement at the Refugee Council, and in the future I hope to obtain a job in a similar role.”
"I came to the UK to study MA Jungian and Post-Jungian Studies at the University of Essex because the course is unique, one of the only ones of its kind in the world. I also knew that the academic staff in the Centre for Psychoanalytic Studies were very highly regarded in their fields, which was very important to me. I have been a Jungian scholar for some time, so wanted to undertake this course to ensure that I am up-to-date with the latest in Jungian thinking.
I am enjoying the classes that I take as part of my postgraduate studies, which are run in a very stimulating and engaging manner. All of the other students on my course are excellent and my whole experience of living in the UK for the first time has been brilliant.
After I have completed my studies at Essex, I plan to return to Johannesburg where I run a Jungian school. I intend to bring the Jungian teaching from my time at the University of Essex to South Africa."
