Our values

The University of Essex is proud of its inclusivity and its international community. Our campuses are places that are welcoming, where everyone can feel they belong and where you can find the world in one place.

We hold our values dear and expect everyone in our community to live up to our expectations and to behave in ways that uphold our University ethos.

Student Charter

The Student Charter is a pledge that every student signs when they join us. By signing, you agree to support our community and in exchange we will provide you with a transformational educational experience.

Code of Student Conduct

The Code of Student Conduct outlines the rules and regulations that help us maintain our high standards of behaviour.

Report a concern or incident

If you encounter or experience behaviours that do not live up to our expectations, you can report a concern or incident to the University. All reports will be taken seriously and the University will take proportionate action.
