Learning resources

Learning Resource Centre

Our Learning Resource Centre (Colchester Campus) offers informal study space and a library. You'll find books, CDs and DVDs on study skills, English language and specific academic subjects, as well as general reference books.

Every student arrives at Essex with the same spirit of determination but different experiences of education and levels of academic readiness. It's natural for you to progress through your studies excelling more in some areas than others.

The Talent Development Centre can help you identify your talents and strengthen those areas you need to develop. We offer support and resources to improve your writing, maths, research, study skills and English language. We also run the Peer-Assisted Learning scheme.

Together we'll build a lifelong commitment to learning that will sustain success throughout your academic life and career.

What we offer

  • Online resources
  • Workshops, classes and events
  • English language tests
  • Peer support to improve your writing and maths
  • One-to-one session with an Academic Adviser
