At Essex, we enjoy an outstanding reputation for the
high quality of our research and teaching, meaning you are taught,
supported and supervised by world leading academics. In the most
recent Research Assessment Exercise (RAE, December 2008), we were
ranked ninth nationally for research excellence and re-confirmed
our standing as the UK’s top social science university.
We offer undergraduate and postgraduate study across the social
sciences, humanities and comparative studies, science and
engineering, and law and management. Our courses and research
opportunities allow you to develop your knowledge and
understanding, as well as provide the key skills and training to
successfully enter your chosen career.
