Summer schools

Discover Essex

Explore, question, create

The University of Essex is working with the departments of Psychology, Literature, Government and Essex Business School to offer students the opportunity to ‘Discover Essex’ as part of our summer residential programme. Students will build their own experiences; you will choose your own subject strand and study with leading academics. Explore the extracurricular activities on campus with our Languages for All and Study Abroad teams and experience life on campus as a student. Live in accommodation, attend lectures and workshops and socialise the way our undergraduates do!

Discover Essex will help students to make informed decisions about continuing your studies after finishing college or sixth form. We have various residential experiences taking place at both our Colchester and Southend Campuses. Students will have the opportunity to apply to one of the following subject strands as part of the ‘Discover Essex’ programme.

Colchester Campus

22 – 25 July

  • Psychology
  • Literature
  • Government

Southend Campus

24 – 26 July

Our residential experiences are free of charge including all meals, accommodation, activities and transport where required. To find out more about the ‘Discover Essex’ programme please read our leaflet and have a look at our eligibility criteria.
