New students

Welcome icon

Welcome to all new students who will be joining our University community. Our welcome information provides important pre-arrival updates and will help you settle in to your new life at Essex.

At Essex Business School we go beyond the basics of a business education. We embed bespoke career development into your course from day one, equip you with the skills to research and question, and nurture your desire to leverage new ideas so that you can respond creatively to whatever the future holds.

If you have the drive and determination to make a difference, we ensure that your voice will be heard. Our collaborative environment empowers you to take control of your career in business and create ideas, products and services with real value. We combine a rigorous education with real-life situations. Your learning is supported by a range of business engagement opportunities, including internships, so that you not only explore and understand how global business operates but have the confidence to challenge the status quo.
