The world's most pressing problems have no regard for disciplinary boundaries, and at Essex we encourage a broader view and an interdisciplinary approach.

We encourage our students to get involved with departmental research. From speaking at conferences to working as a lab assistant, there are plenty of opportunities for you to make your mark while gaining valuable experience for your career.
