Students from the UK and the EU are still eligible for their Erasmus grants. If you’re interested in taking part in the programme in 2018, you will also be eligible to study under the Erasmus programme.
"I chose to study at Essex Business School as it was highly ranked and a lot of alumni had gone on to become senior figures within their industries. The modules offered were a great fit for my business aspirations, and the opportunity to create a business plan meant I had a launch pad ready for when I was ready to start up my own business. I now own a number of businesses and hope to grow them and sell on in the future. I also advise people on how to start businesses using the techniques and knowledge I gained during my time at Essex."
