We run lots of different sessions throughout the year to provide you with essential information about going abroad. From first year and second year briefings to funding chats and country low-downs, we've got it covered.

Is language a concern?

We have you covered.

Through our award-winning Languages for All programme, Essex students are entitled to learn a language alongside their degree, at no extra cost for one year. Depending on which campus, students can choose from a wide range of languages including Arabic, British Sign Language, French, German, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin Chinese, Russian and Spanish. This course is designed to equip you with essential language skills so you can live, study or work abroad for a short time.
