Sticking to US Top Research Universities to Cheat in UK or Europe Research Ranking

Lecturer (Teaching Fellow) (Former Employee)
Colchester, England (UK)

I worked at University of Essex as a contractor for more than 5 years

ProsVery small centre campus and the building was for military use in the past.
Very good teaching quality in Economics, Government, Psychology & Linguitics.

ConsVery urgy central campus and the new shining chinese-stype toilet as the memorial theatre building. So, even the VC is inbelievably stupid. That's why Essex's ranking droped from around 30s to 50s in just less than a decade.
Very very rubbish Essex Business School. Not matter research, teaching, administration, marketing/promoting the new B-School....
Student satisfaction is diving.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
