We co-ordinate a varied schedule of activities throughout the year to give students an insight into what it's like to study at a research-led university.
Online Study Skills Resources
We have been working really hard to create resources to support you whilst schools/colleges are closed. There are higher education talks, easy-to-follow videos and workbooks for students to complete on their own or all the resources are available for teachers/advisers to deliver themselves, whether that’s in school, college or online. We hope they are helpful and if you need any support or have any questions please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Lockdown Logic is our series of educational and informative blogs and vlogs. Written by current University of Essex students, they provide a unique opportunity to explore what our students wish they had been told before they left school.
Read and listen to their advice on Choosing a University Course, Time management, Managing Money and much more.
Students can use the easy-to-follow videos and workbook to complete the workshop in their own time. Either print off the pdf version of the workbook or edit the word document using your device.
If you’re a teacher who is going to deliver the workshop you will find a pdf version of the presentation below, as well as the delivery notes and other documents to support your lesson.
We have the following workshops available for both Pre-16 and Post-16 students: Metacognition, Life Design, Growth Mind-set and Reflective Practice.
We asked Ruth Clark, Assistant Vice Principal at Plume College, Maldon a few questions about her role and responsibilities, and what are the benefits of working with our school’s outreach team.
