We understand how important teachers and counsellors are in preparing students for university and so we want to support you and your students with a range of resources.
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 email@example.com
Led by our fantastic PhD tutors, this exciting new webinar series will teach you something new every week! Each live, interactive workshop will last 45 minutes and you’ll be sent a workbook to follow along with at home, so all you need is a device with internet access – no webcam!
It's really easy to sign up, simply select which topics you're interested in and register for your desired date and time.
We are hosting social activities for Y10-13 students and their families every Friday afternoon at 4pm. Below you'll find out what's coming up in July, just click on a link to register.
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 coming to University.
Read and listen to their advice on Beating Writer's Block, Navigating your First Year, 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 recognise that the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) is a valuable qualification for students to undertake in preparation for study at university. The following resources are designed to introduce students to the key skills needed for writing their first research project.
If you are part of our Schools Membership Scheme, our fully trained PhD Tutors are also available to provide workshops that cover the key skills required to complete the EPQ. These can be delivered either in your sixth form/college or at one of our campuses.
These resources provide information about the university application process, such as personal statements and student finance, and we would encourage you to share them with your students (and their parents) in order to guide them through the process.
Seven higher education institutions have developed exciting short online courses suitable for college students, teachers and advisers. The free AccessHE online courses range from specific subject introductions, to understanding how the university application cycle works.
In addition to all of these resources, we also have Essex101, a fully interactive online course which students can undertake in their own time or you can use in the classroom.
