Our next Mini Open Day is on Saturday 20 January 2024 in Colchester.

This is your chance to chat with students and staff, tour our campus, listen to a variety of talks and get a feel for what life at Essex is really like.

Book your Mini Open Day now


Our Mini Open Days are smaller than our main Open Days but you'll still have the chance to attend talks covering a range of topics including accommodation, student finance and student life, as well as tour our campus and accommodation. 

The main difference to a main Open Day is that there won't be any academic departments present or subject talks and tasters, as these options are only at our main Open Days.

Our main Open Days are now finished for 2023, but keep an eye on this page for the 2024 dates!
