If you are a UK/EU applicant for an undergraduate degree at Essex, you will be invited to attend an Applicant Day. The information on these pages are for applicants who have been invited to an Applicant Day.
Our Applicant Days focus on the course and Department you have applied to. They are an opportunity to meet relevant subject academic staff, chat to current students and get all your questions answered before you make your final choices via UCAS.
Some of our courses require a compulsory interview as part of the recruitment process so it is important you attend. If this is the case it will be clearly stated on your myEssex portal once you have received your invitation. For other courses, the interview is not compulsory. The following tables outline the subjects for in which it’s compulsory to attend an Applicant Day and interview, and those where it is optional.
Your Applicant Day invitation will be sent via email - so keep an eye out for it!
If you are an international applicant, please email us if you would like to attend an Applicant Day.
