Get to know us a little bit better

Are you thinking of applying to Essex via Clearing but you'd like to get more of a feel for the place? We have just the thing for you - The Essex Clearing Virtual Open Week.

Of course we'd love to welcome you in person to our campuses in Colchester and Southend, but as we all know by now, this isn't an option yet. So instead we'd like to welcome you to your potential new home, from the comfort of your current one. 

Whether you've been made an offer in Clearing already or want to find out more about Essex before you apply, join now for a whole week of talks, 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.

Join our Clearing Virtual Open Week now!

Starting at 9am on Monday 10 August, you can get to know our departments and find out what student life is like at Essex all from the comfort of your own home.
