Open Days are your chance to find the place you will forever call your second home – they’re a pretty big deal. You probably think an Essex Open Day is the same as all the rest and of course, we’ll show you all the important stuff, but why stop there?
After you've checked in at our Sports Arena, this is your chance to explore all the departments at Essex. Have a chat with the lecturers, get involved in their interactive activities and fuel your brain for the day with some free cake!
This is where you might want a notepad and pen! Get to grips with the basics of accommodation, applying, student finance, study abroad and more. We'll make sure you leave the Open Day fully clued up about your next steps.
Subjects Talks and Tasters
You'll get a free trial as a student in your chosen subject area at a talk and taster. If you haven't decided which course is for you yet, attend as many as you can, and we promise it will help you make your mind up!
Tours of accommodation and campus
Our Colchester Campus is pretty big, and even we get lost sometimes! The easiest way to see the best bits is on a tour with one of our lovely students.
Activities (and food!)
We think you deserve a bit of fun mixed in with the inevitable information overload! Head to square 5 and get into the Essex spirit.
Take the chance to grill academics one-to-one about your chosen subject.
See campus and accommodation through the eyes of a student with our student ambassador tours.
We won't plan your day for you, make it what you want it to be and step into the unconventional.
Open Days are your chance to find the place you will forever call your second home – they’re a pretty big deal, so get stuck in.

Asides the weird and wonderful, there will be all the serious stuff like subject talks and tasters.
Our Students' Union will give you a true taste of what Essex is like.
Keep yourself refreshed with copious amounts of cake and tea!
Chill out to acoustic guitar, or rock out to something heavier. Your day will be accompanied by the sweet sound of live music.
