We believe a person’s potential is defined by an attitude of mind: a willingness to learn and collaborate.
Our Essex Pathways department is a gateway to the University of Essex, helping students without standard entry requirements to grow in confidence, unlock their potential, and nurture their ambitions so they can progress in academic study.
We provide undergraduate pathway routes to degree courses at our University and equip you with the necessary skills and knowledge to succeed on your chosen course. From the very first moment you arrive, you will feel part of our community and have access to all the facilities our campus has to offer.
We work closely with all other departments, schools and centres across the University, and guarantee that a place is secured on your chosen degree course as long as you successfully complete your course with us.
