Find out what we're all about
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.
If you're interested in studying a Masters or research degree with us, we recently hosted a Postgraduate Virtual Week from 1-5 February. If you missed the live event, don't worry because we recorded all of the talks and sessions, so you will be able to watch these back in your own time on our PG Virtual Week event page.
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.
