Student Profile(s)

Rachel Grenfell-Essam

“I decided to study within the Department of Psychology at Essex after attending an open day. I felt at home and was impressed by the excellent teaching and research ratings. I have always been interested in psychology and my interest continued to grow throughout my undergraduate and postgraduate study. This made the decision to continue with my PhD at Essex easy.

I really enjoy the freedom I have in my PhD. I particularly enjoy designing my own experiments, running them and analysing the results in my own work space. I also have an extremely supportive supervisor which is great. The Department is fantastic, any problems are dealt with quickly and the staff are always friendly and helpful. I also enjoy helping out as a teaching assistant in several classes and lectures.

I really like the compact layout of the campus, everything you need is within five minutes walk from the offices to the library and the SU bar. There is also a great atmosphere and student vibe here; I have always felt safe when walking through campus at any time of day or night.

My best memory so far was when I was told my first paper was accepted into a journal, it was such an achievement. Once I have completed my PhD I would love to become a lecturer. Essex is one of the leading universities for research, so completing a research degree here will stand me in very good stead when I start applying for jobs."
