It’s definitely really worthwhile.

Although you are online, when you come to Essex for graduation it really puts it into perspective what you’ve actually done. Dedicate the time to it – it’s not really something that you can just slot in. You have to really make it part of your everyday life.

I know that Essex is a good university, and I know that you can do other online study options, but to have a degree with a respected university is what appealed to me. There were certain modules that I really enjoyed, like the Consumer Behaviour and Marketing Communications ones. But even the ones that I didn’t enjoy as much still had parts that I enjoyed.

I already had a part-time job doing marketing for a furniture company. I’m going to go full-time with that and I’m interested in doing a postgrad or seeing what options are available.
