Although it’s not possible for us to host our typical on-campus events, such as Open Days, Applicant Days and Campus Tours, we understand that getting to know us through these events is still a really important part of our experience in choosing the right university for you. Which is why you can still attend all our events virtually, from the comfort of your own home!
We are Essex: home to the daring and the tenacious, a place for the ambitious and the bold. We’re a close-knit, supportive and welcoming community, with a powerful and pioneering global outlook.
We were named University of the Year 2018 in the Times Higher Education Awards.
At Essex you’re taught by world-leading academics in a supportive and research-intensive environment. We were ranked Gold in the most recent Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF 2017) which means we deliver an excellent educational experience. Our trailblazing research continues to change the world for the better and we are ranked 25th in the UK for research quality (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2021).
Whether you study in the beautiful historic parkland of our Colchester Campus, the bustling lively town centre of Southend-on-Sea or in our stately home at Loughton, this is your chance to become a member of the one of the happiest groups of students around. The flexibility of our courses gives you the power to pursue the things that matter to you. Now’s your chance to join Nobel Prize-winners, award-winning directors, presidents, well-loved actors, astronauts, and over 100,000 other alumni who have gone on to shape the world and share their Essex spirit.
