Short-term study at Essex
Academic and professional summer schools
Traditionally located at our historic Colchester Campus, surrounded by tranquil parkland, or the vibrant seaside town of Southend, our summer schools combine academic rigour, research excellence and innovation. Each summer school brings experts together from around the world to share their expertise and experiences; to provide insight into current trends and developments and to train participants in a range of specialised fields.
Further information about these summer schools can be found below.
Please note, these summer schools will be held virtually and conducted in an online format for 2021.
Summer Residential Experiences
Our Summer Residential Experience provides year 12 students with an authentic university experience where you will not only develop your academic writing but you will also enhance your confidence and independence, as you cook and socialise in university halls, living like a real undergraduate student.
CPD and short courses
We also offer a range of CPD and short courses, and executive education programmes, designed to develop the key skills you'll need in your professional or academic career.
