Find out what we're all about
We understand that getting to know us through events is a really important part of your experience in choosing the right university for you. We quickly moved to virtual events at the start of the pandemic, and are now offering some small, face to face visits where possible and safe to do so.
- Experience Essex Days - we are inviting offer holders and enquirers to visit, meet current students and have a campus and accommodation tour.
- Campus Tours - we are currently offering both self-guided and guided tours.
- Open Days - we are hoping to be able to host a Mini Open day on Saturday 14 August 2021 and our first main Open Day on Saturday 18 September 2021 at our Colchester Campus. We've got several open days coming up so why not book your place now?
In the meantime, we have a range of events to attend or watch back and you can take a virtual tour, watch videos, explore subject talks and tasters, and find more information about our campuses over on our Can't Visit Us page.
- Parents and advisor session – we welcome anyone supporting students to attend on 21 July where we will discuss the next steps and answer any questions you have.
- Pre-Departure sessions – if you are starting at Essex this year, join our sessions to help you prepare on 22 July, 18 August and 8 September.
- Mature Learners Webinars – designed to support mature students transition into Higher Education, join us on 27 July – 29 July.
