Think you know Open Days?

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?

You told us you wanted to hear from our students. You told us you wanted authenticity. You told us you wanted to do, not listen. You wanted to see more of our accommodation.

You spoke. We listened.

Welcome to an Essex Open Day. A day built for you, by us. A real experience of uni life, straight from the student's mouth.


Our 2018 Undergraduate Open Days will take place on:


  • Saturday 18 August Clearing Open day - no need to book, just come along
  • Saturday 15 September - Open for booking now
  • Saturday 27 October - Open for booking now


  • Saturday 20 October - Open for booking now

Don't forget, if you can't make our Open Days, you can book a campus tour with us on a weekday that suits you.

Our Undergraduate Open Days are the perfect way to get a feel of what student life at Essex is really like. If you are interested in Postgraduate study at Essex, these days are great for you to see what Essex is all about and our Postgraduate admissions team will be on hand to answer any questions you have, but the talks and taster lectures are based on Undergraduate study. Why not come to our Postgraduate Open Evening in November?

Take a look at our Facebook Event page where you can keep up to date with the latest news about what's happening on the day and have your say on what you'd like to see at our future Open Days! 


Postgraduate Open Evening 

If you've recently graduated, decided now's the time to return to education or just want to find out more about our courses, why not come along to our Postgraduate Open Evening on Wednesday 7th November 2018.
