Study with us

Year in Latin America

Latin American town

All of our undergraduate courses include a year spent studying abroad, giving you a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to live and study in Latin America and immerse yourself in its culture.

Latin America is a complex and fascinating region. We have played a leading role in Latin American teaching and research since our University was founded. Our undergraduate single and joint-honours courses and postgraduate opportunities are built on almost fifty years' experience in the study of Latin America.

Watch our videos to hear more about our courses from students and staff.

Facilities for Latin American studies

We have an excellent reputation both nationally and internationally. Our Essex Collection of Art from Latin America (ESCALA) is an internationally significant collection of more than 700 artworks by contemporary Latin American artists. Our Centre for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS) organises events and seminars that bring together researchers from across our University.

Our approach and research expertise

We offer interdisciplinary courses that bring together language experts, lecturers and researchers from the humanities and the social sciences, with undergraduate modules available in literature, film, history of art, history, politics and sociology. You also learn Spanish and/or Portuguese to an advanced level. The range of subjects offered is mirrored in the wide variety of research projects currently being pursued by the academic staff who teach our courses. You will learn from internationally recognised experts in Latin America.

£300 bursary for learning tools

Select us as your first firm UCAS choice by 27 June and you will be eligible for the Essex 50th Anniversary Bursary for learning tools worth £300.
