Come and say hello at our Open Day

Come along to our Postgraduate Open Day on 18 March 2019 to gather information from our staff and students about being part of our warm and welcoming postgraduate community. We have a wide range of courses to study at Essex, from Masters degrees to PhDs. Discover all the opportunities that will be available to you as a postgraduate student at Essex by attending our Postgraduate Open Day!

We're open from 3.45pm to 7pm, and are based in The Hex at our Colchester Campus.

You'll also be able to chat with our student services, attend a welcome talk, find out information about postgraduate student finance, and attend an interactive talk with a panel our academic experts on their ground-breaking research.

We'll be serving prosecco and canapes in our main venue, The Hex, as well as tea, coffee and cake at our departmental stands. So this is definitely shaping up to be an event you will not want to miss!
