We will be running two weeks of careers activity from 24 October to 4 November 2022 which will incorporate a number of targeted in person fairs and a combination of online and in person workshops and insight events. The full details are yet to be finalised but if you would like to receive the details once published please complete this short questionnaire about your recruitment aims for the coming year - this will help us to plan which of the activities might be most beneficial to you.

Our students come to Essex from a range of backgrounds, including 30% from areas that typically send very few students into Higher Education. 45% of our U/G students and 54% of our PG students are from a BAME background. Around 37% of our students come from households with incomes of less than £25,000, around a third have told us they are first in their family to go to University and around a third are known to be state school educated. Having taken this bold step, 77% of our graduates gain good degrees at Essex.
Studying at Essex is not just about getting a degree, it is also about getting an education. Our students have come a long way just to get here, and whilst here we encourage them to make a difference to the lives of others, grasp opportunities that will help further their careers, and find creative ways to enrich their university experience. We instil in them the Essex Spirit, a proud tradition of encouraging students to challenge convention and think differently and the belief that where you come from should NOT limit how far you can go.
