Welcome week offers a series of workshops, talks, events and activities for all new students, whatever their stage of study.
As well as registering as an Essex student, we have a full programme of events and activities designed to help you get the best start possible to life at Essex.
We'll introduce you to your academic department, student life and the range of support available to you through the University and the Students' Union.
Welcome Week continues all week from Sunday 30 September to Friday 5 October.
Across Colchester campus there are cafes, restaurants and bars, all open to students. These cater to suit all tastes and include a number of non-alcoholic venues.
