Black Researchers' Hub

The Black Researchers’ Hub is a pioneering learning platform, which aims to break down barriers and support the next generation of black researchers at Essex as well as developing your research skills whatever your career aspirations are.

Part of the Transitions and Transformations project, the Black Researchers’ Hub offers a ground-breaking new approach to supporting black students from undergraduate to postgraduate study – and onto academic careers.

The Black Researchers’ Hub is a bespoke digital platform that aims to ensure all our black students have access to the learning, training, advice and support they need to hone their research skills and/or to become successful researchers.
