Excellence at work

A Year of Success

We're celebrating everything great that has happened at the University of Essex in 2014-2015.

From fantastic new student opportunities to internationally-recognised research excellence.

From strengthening our culture of membership, with our 50th Homecoming weekend, to welcoming 5,000 new students and saying 'hello' to our new Chancellor, civil liberties campaigner Shami Chakrabarti
