The impact of COVID-19 has been felt around the world and by all of us. We understand that one of the biggest impacts of the pandemic has been the disruption to your learning and assessment and your experience of your final year of school. We know that getting back on track for university study might feel a bit daunting, and we want to do everything we can to help you to succeed, including additional support to ensure you have a successful transition to your course at Essex.
That's why we have you covered.
The Essex Preparation Programme covers important topics to help you build your academic skills for success. These include independent learning, critical thinking, problem solving and a range of other skills that will really help you to succeed in your undergraduate studies. You will learn through a mixture of lectures, articles and quizzes. You will complete the course online, so you can study at a pace that suits you.
Completion of the course is optional, but we believe it will really help you get ready to succeed in your studies with us at the University of Essex.
We believe in it so much that we’re awarding cash bursaries of £250 to all new students that complete the course by 6 October 2021 and register with us for the 2021-2022 academic year. You can see the full terms and conditions and how to apply online.
