Visit Essex from the comfort of your own home

We can't avoid the fact that we're in the middle of a global pandemic, things aren't normal and so for now, we can't go on with our normal activities such as Open Days. 

However, we bring you, The Essex Virtual Open Day. A day of talks and tasters, a chance to virtually meet staff from across the University as well as an opportunity to see inside some of our accommodation and teaching facilities.

Booking and attending the day

Do I need to attend the whole Open Day or can I drop in and out?

It is totally up to you! You can spend the whole day listening to talks and tasters or you can just drop in and listen to the ones you are interested in or chat with the departments you have questions for.

Can my parents / guardians be a part of the day?

Absolutely. Whether you all crowd around the same computer or each have your own device, your parents and guardians are more than welcome to enjoy the day with you and access all the same information.
