If you’d like more information about any of our courses before making
your application, please get in touch.
Undergraduate applications should be made via UCAS.
If we make you an offer, we'll invite you to attend an
applicant day to find out more about your course and our School. You can
also visit us before making an application by coming along to an
Masters and MBA
Applications for our Masters and The Essex MBA should be made directly to
the University of Essex. You can apply at any point throughout the year, but
competition for our programmes is fierce, so we advise you submit your
application before 1 July.
There is no deadline for applications, but we advise you apply before 1
July for PhD programmes starting in October.
English language requirements
If you’re joining us from overseas, you need to meet the English language requirements outlined on our course pages.
Our Essex Pathways Department at our Colchester Campus provides pre-sessional English language pathways that are ideal
if you need to improve your English before starting a course with us. They also give you an early opportunity to settle
into your accommodation and meet fellow international students so you can feel at home.
Our partner universities
We’re proud of our partnerships with universities around the world, including:
- link agreements, enabling students from partner universities, particularly in China, to study at Essex Business School
- student exchange partnerships, where our undergraduates can spend time studying abroad
- a limited number of joint Masters degrees, where we work with an international partner to offer a shared programme taught across both universities
