Experience Essex Travel Bursary

It's been a tough year for us all, so to make things a little easier, we'd like to offer you a bursary to cover the costs of your travel to the event (up to £100). You can view our terms and conditions here and download the form to complete here.

Compulsory Interviews

Applicants applying to a degree which requires a compulsory interview will receive an invite to a Zoom interview via email. 

You will need to accept or decline the Zoom interview via your myEssex portal and instructions for this will be in your email. Once you have accepted the interview, you will need to download the Zoom app on your phone, tablet or PC if you do not already have it, there is some more information on how to do this here.

You will also be a sent a link to your Interview Guide which will explain how to confirm your attendance, things to prepare before your interview, what to expect on the day and what will happen afterwards.

On the day of your interview, at your allotted time, you will be able to use the link from the invite email to join the interview.
