If you have been made an offer to study at Essex, you will receive an email from us inviting you to a Virtual Applicant Day - we would still like to meet you even though we can't run on-campus events at the moment! This is an informal event lasting around two hours, so feel free for your parents/guardians or friends to join too. The event will start with a session with your department, followed by live general talks and Q&A's with staff on our Virtual Applicant Day platform.
Your invite email will ask you to log on to our myEssex applicant portal to select a date. So we can be as flexible as possible, we offer two time slots which run from 9.00am - 12.00pm and 4.00 - 7.00pm in alternate weeks, so you can attend whichever date is better for you.
Then head to your myEssex portal to view the available dates and book one that suits you. If you haven't set up your portal yet, click here and select 'register'. You can also see when your department is hosting by clicking the dates below.
More dates will be added for March - June
Once you’ve chosen a date on your portal, you will receive an email confirming the date and time of your Virtual Applicant Day, and a Zoom link for you to join in the first hour. There will also be a link to the Virtual Applicant Day platform which you will be able to access any time, but remember to head there after your Zoom meeting for some live general talks and the opportunity to ask staff questions:
|We are Essex, are you?|
|Welcome to our International Students|
|Funding for UK Students|
You’ll need to download Zoom to your phone, tablet or PC before your Virtual Applicant Day session, there is some more information on how to do this here.
On the date and time specified in your email, you’ll just need to click the Zoom link to join the meeting. If you have any questions, just drop us an email at email@example.com.
Please make sure you use your full name as your display name on Zoom so our staff and students know who you are.
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.
