At Essex we support you in making the most of your time at university. We celebrate diversity, challenge inequality and work hard to create a living, learning and working environment that enables you to express your whole self.
We have a range of services geared up to guide you through your university journey - from the moment you arrive, to the day you throw your mortar board in the air, whether you're a mature student, a commuter or living away from home for the first time.
Around 37% of our students are mature students. We appreciate that with responsibilities and other commitments, studying as a mature student can present challenges. As a mature student you are automatically enrolled into the Mature Students' Network.
