Winter Insight Day

Ever wondered what it is like to study with us?

Join us at the University of Essex for our Winter Insight Day, where we will be running a selection of different taster sessions across all three of our teaching faculties, allowing students the option to sample two subject areas and meet our enthusiastic staff members.

In addition, we will be holding a department fair, allowing students to chat to staff from additional subject areas.

Students will also have the opportunity to take a tour of our Colchester campus with our student ambassadors to hear first hand what it’s like to study at Essex and get any questions answered.
