With bold expansion plans for the future Essex is the one to watch.
Crowned University of the Year 2018 in the Times Education Awards 2018.
Rated Gold in the Teaching Excellence Framework 2017.
Proud to be the 15th most international university in the world with our cohort of nearly 15,000 students.
Lives are transformed at Essex. Our unique campus communities boast students from 170 different nations. This diverse community allows our students to make international contacts and develop an understanding of other cultures that equips them for an increasingly globalised labour market.
Our students come to Essex from a range of backgrounds, including 30% from areas that typically send very few students into Higher Education. A staggering 37% of our students come from households with incomes of less than £25,000 and a significant proportion of those are the first in their family to come to university.
Having taken this bold step; 80% of these students then go on to gain good degrees at Essex.
As our recent TEF Gold rating showed, not only do our students receive a high-quality academic experience at Essex, they also have a greater chance of getting a graduate-level job or entering further study when they leave; than if they had attended a similar university with a similar student profile.
The unique transformative education we offer allows our students to go into the world and make a difference.
Last years' Careers Fair was our biggest and best yet with over 1800 students and graduates through the doors in the space of four and a half hours, there really is no better way to raise your brand profile on campus!
We are also serious about our commitment to equality, social mobility and diversity... The Times Higher Education Awards judging panel said “Unabashed in its strategy to recruit students on the basis of potential rather than just prior achievement, and [The University of Essex} has helped them to fulfil that potential."
Did we mention that The University of Essex has was awarded the prestigious title of University of the Year 2018 at the Times Higher Education Awards 2018?

This Fair is targeted towards recruiters and their representatives with insight opportunities, placement years, summer internships, graduate schemes and other graduate jobs and opportunities relevant to our student body, as well as professional and membership bodies able to provide careers information, advice and support to our students and third party student and graduate recruitment service providers.
We are mindful of providing a good variety of opportunity for our students and therefore need to ensure a wide variety of sectors and job roles are represented. For this reason we reserve the right to decline any bookings that we feel do not fulfil this remit or provide a good match.
