Although it's not possible for us to host our typical on-campus events, such as Open Days, Applicant Days and Campus Tours, we understand that getting to know us through these events is still a really important part of your experience in choosing the right university for you. Which is why you can still attend all our events virtually, from the comfort of your own home! 

Our Open Days are now virtual, and available whenever suits you. All you have to do is enter your details and you'll be able to access our Virtual Open Day platform 24/7 - don't forget to bookmark the page so you can return any time! We've also moved to Virtual Applicant Days, which means if you are made an offer to study at Essex as an undergraduate student in 2021, you will be invited to a special event hosted by your department.

Check out the talks and sessions from our Postgraduate Virtual Week which are available to watch on-demand. If you missed any of our virtual events lately, don't worry because we are planning a bunch of new events over the next few months - so watch this space!

But if you still want to learn more, we've got videos, talks and tasters, and information about our campuses over on our Can't Visit Us page.

We are hoping that we can return to on-campus events next year, but we will only do this if it's safe to do so. We are also hoping that our Campus Tours can resume early next year, but in the mean time, you can virtually tour our campuses here.
