Three reasons to choose Essex
The Essex Spirit
We’re about people who love to learn how, but want to challenge why. If you are tenacious, bold, inquisitive and impatient for change, welcome home.
The world in one place
Internationalism is central to who we are and what we do. Our genuinely global community is a place that fuses ideas, cultures and a breadth of perspectives.
Members for life
Build friendships, develop interests and embrace values to transform your life and career. Our members have genuine licence to shape what goes
on around them.
