An Essex graduation is never a goodbye, it’s a celebration of what you’ve achieved with us. If completing your undergraduate studies here was just the beginning, we have so much more to offer you. Whether you’re looking to kickstart your next adventure immediately, or if you’ve had some time away and are hungry to return, at Essex we’ve got a postgraduate course for you.

With our range of taught Masters and research degrees among the many reasons we’ve been ranked in the top 40 UK universities (Complete University Guide 2023), there has never been a better time to extend your journey with us. Postgraduate education at Essex goes well beyond the lecture theatre, with experiences that set our graduates apart. Alongside your studies there are lots of opportunities to broaden your skillset, such as learning a language or immersing yourself in emerging fields like data science – all at no extra cost.

At Essex we also know that postgraduate study is a big commitment, so we are very flexible to ensure you can study when it works for you. You can enrol on a full-time or part-time basis, with some Masters courses even offering start dates in January or April. Applying is a breeze now too, with our fast-track application form open to current undergraduate students looking to stay at Essex for their postgraduate studies.

Alumni Loyalty Discount
We always reserve certain perks for our alumni. If you’ve completed a degree with us before or if you're currently studying at Essex, you could be eligible for a discount of up to 33% on the first year of both a postgraduate taught course and a research degree, which means that you could say money on up to two years of study if you embark on a Masters and PhD with us.
