Undergraduate Admissions team

The Undergraduate Admissions Office manages the policy and processing of all applications for full-time undergraduate study.

How we can help

We can offer advice, support and guidance on all aspects of the undergraduate application process, including:

  • the range of undergraduate courses offered at Essex
  • the entry requirements for those courses (including expert knowledge of a wide range of UK, EU and international qualifications, and English language qualifications)
  • how and when to apply
  • the status of an application to Essex, and the next steps if an offer has been made
  • confirmation of places for conditional offer holders, on receipt of results
  • making a Clearing application (once the main application cycle has ended)
  • fee status assessments (to determine whether an applicant should be classed as a home or overseas student for tuition fee purposes)
  • UK Visas and Immigration requirements for applicants who require a Tier 4 visa to study in the UK
  • issuing a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) to eligible applicants, which is required in order to make a Tier 4 visa application
  • readmission for former students who are requesting permission to be readmitted to study
  • maintaining publications and websites relating to courses and entry requirements, including listings on the UCAS website
