Student Profile(s)

Maria Grecco

I feel terribly proud! I work as a forensic psychiatrist in Argentina and this course has been amazing, it has really changed my life and my working practice.

The teachers are excellent, my classmates were also really supportive and all the team at the University. All the people have been extremely kind to me. I really don’t feel like a foreign student, I feel like I have been studying here all my life and this is because of the University.

The advice I have for people considering online study is you have to go for it, yes definitely! It’s the best experience, and England is the best place to study abroad, I have tried and attempted to do it in other countries and it’s not so easy. Here things are very accessible, and the teachers are the best. The team supports you and guides you throughout this journey that is complicated. It is full of obstacles, but they really encourage you to get to the end. So, you have to do it, especially here at Essex.
