Chat to our staff or students

Whether you're filled with curiosity about our courses or eager to delve deeper into the student experience, engage directly with a current student or a member of our staff. Gain insights into our Colchester, Southend, and Loughton campuses firsthand through our one to one conversations, or through a community group chat.

Explore all our students and staff, and find someone to chat to about all things Essex.

Join our community group chat

If you prefer a communal setting and don't fancy a one to one chat, join one of our community group chats for a safe environment to meet students on your course or parents of students joining us and share ideas, ask questions, and enjoy lively debates.
