The Essex Manifesto
We are Essex. We're on the side of people with guts – rebels with a cause. We're
about people who love to learn how, but want to challenge why. But why do we have to
stop here? Why can't we take it further, to the bit where it really gets interesting?
We encourage our students to question everything, so don't take our word for it. Hear what Lauren has to say
about her time at Essex, or follow our student bloggers.
