If you are returning to a new academic year, you will need to make your module choices. If you are returning in October, you should receive an email about module enrolment in the April before you are due to return. For advice contact the Student Services Hub or your department, school or centre.
You will be able to choose your optional modules ready for your return to study by using the online module enrolment system eNROL, which you may have used last year. eNROL allows you to select your module choices in a secure web environment. An email will be sent to your Essex account when eNROL opens but you can also logon to the system using your Essex account username and password to find out when this is scheduled to be.
When you return to our University, you can access online and face-to-face study and academic skills support.
Students who have returned to study from a period of intermission have told us that they found it useful to do some pre-reading. So we recommend that you start some course reading before you come back to help you get up to speed. If you are unsure about what to read, check out your department’s website.
You should contact your department, school or centre to find out what steps you may need to take in preparation for your return.
You might like to contact your graduate administrator, to see whether there have been any changes in your school, department or centre.
If you haven’t already done so, you should contact your supervisor to arrange a first meeting and to discuss how you will pick up your research.
