Welcome to Essex, a home for those who are impatient to make a difference in the world

At Essex we're impatient for change, we strive to support and encourage our students and staff to be that change in the world that we believe in, and our Open Day is a chance for you to get a taste of what life at Essex could be like. Think meeting world-class academics and like-minded students. Think family. Think home and where you could live. Think taster lectures. Think making a change. Think art. Think music. Think tea and treats. Think you know open days? Think again.
