I was so anxious when I arrived at Essex and you really helped me manage and survive my first year
Thankyou for all of your help over the past 3 years. Your weekly support has really helped me to come a long way. This has been far my best year at University
Thank you for all your help during my studies. You've put my mind at ease more times than I can count
The personal one to one mentoring support I received was phenomenal throughout the entirety of my time at University. My mentor was always very warm, kind and supportive, ensuring that all of my individual needs were met and that I was always treated with the utmost courtesy and respect.
