Short course to prepare you for academic success

We know that the disruption to your learning this year has had a significant impact, and we are dedicated to supporting you to success in your future learning. To help you prepare for university, we’ve developed an online, six-week course called the Pre-Undergraduate Short Course. It’s completely optional but if you complete it and enrol with us this year, you’ll be eligible for a £500 bursary.

PhD Studentships

Throughout the year we may advertise studentships that are available through the School, and through the Faculty of Science and Health.

We do not currently have any available studentships.

How to apply - PhD studentships

You should apply via the Essex postgraduate applications portal, ideally making contact with potential PhD supervisors before applying. For CSEE you are also required to submit the School's application form.

You can also find out more about our current areas of research on our staff profiles.

Questions and queries about the studentships should be sent to the School's Postgraduate Administrator (csee-pgadmissions@essex.ac.uk)
