The Essex Taster Week 2023

4-7 July 2023

Every year we host a series of exciting taster days for students in years 10-13, as well as mature students. These events provide an opportunity to explore academic subjects at undergraduate level, in addition to providing a unique experience of a day in the life of a university student. 

We are currently reviewing our 2022 event, and making plans for our 2023 Taster Week event.

The event will again have days dedicated to each of our Faculties here at Essex: Science and Health, Social Science and Arts and Humanities hosted at our Colchester Campus, as well as a day hosted at our Southend Campus.

We will be updating this webpage soon with more details about our event, but please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any queries. 

During Covid-19 we ran our Taster Week virtually, and you can still access and share some of the recordings online


Students under the age of 16, attending as individuals, will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian. 

If you would like to access our Faith Centre while on campus, please let the event organiser know.
