Welcome to the unconventional

Think meeting world-class academics and like-minded students. Think family. Think home. Think taster lectures. Think making a change. Think art. Think music. Think tea and cake, copious amounts of cake. Think of all this plus lots of free goodies, plenty of entertainment and much more! Think you know open days? Think again.

Intrigued to see what's in store on the day? The programme will be released nearer the time.

Special requirements

If you or your guests have any special requirements, please email us in advance so we can make sure your visit is as smooth as possible. If you're a visitor with a disability, please let a member of staff know so they can advise you on accessible routes around campus. If you would prefer a personal tour of our campus and/or accommodation, then let us know when you check in and we'll arrange for a Student Ambassador to guide you.

New contact details?

Should your contact information change, please drop us an email to let us know your new details so we can make sure you don’t miss out on any important information.

It was absolutely incredible coming to Essex and seeing first hand where I'll hopefully be next year! Everyone was so positive. A warm, happy place!
