Our Postgraduate Virtual Week was packed full of talks and sessions to get you thinking about postgraduate study at Essex in 2021.
Throughout the week we introduced our academic departments and subjects, our research excellence and impact, and discussed how you can fund your studies and how to apply.
We hope you were able to attend some of our talks live and found them helpful and interesting. But if you missed anything, our talks were recorded and can be watched whenever is convenient for you. Discover our on-demand content below.
On 24 March, we have another postgraduate virtual event taking place, our Postgraduate Information Day. So if you missed our virtual week-long event in February, or even if you just have more to learn and questions to ask, check out the schedule for the event and book yourself on so you don't miss out!
This year we're also hosting a Postgraduate Webinar Series, which includes short postgraduate courses that offer an insight into studying a Masters degree.
"The opportunities at Essex are infinite and invaluable. One remarkable thing that I love about the University is its cultural diversity and the considerable number of international students. I am learning not only from my teachers but also from my classmates who come from all around the world and are willing to share their stories. Essex has several societies to join where you can learn a lot of things while sharing laughter and skills with other students. This is an opportunity that everyone needs to take."
Unfortunately, due to COVID restrictions in the UK, we are unable to show visitors around our campuses and accommodation in person right now, but that doesn't mean you can't have a sneak-peak virtually! We have both virtual tours and campus videos which you can check out on our webpage here. Just scroll down the page and you'll find them in the section about our campuses.
"When I first came to Essex at an open day, I was struck by the diversity on campus. Throughout my time I have met and lived with people from around the world, which has been amazing. The Department of History has provided excellent support during my studies, from help with funding applications to regular feedback and support with my doctoral work. In 2019 I undertook fieldwork for my PhD in Zimbabwe based in Harare and I did my research in the National Archives. Since returning to Essex in 2020, the University has been excellent in providing support during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
"A friend of mine who studied at Essex recommended the University to me, and because it has one of the best language and linguistics departments in the UK I decided to do a Masters degree here. My course is very interesting and I am really enjoying it. I share a flat in the Quays accommodation with other postgraduate students, and have met other friends through the Islamic Society and the volleyball club. I would strongly advise anyone to come to Essex because it has an excellent academic reputation and offers a great environment for study."
