We're doing things a little differently

Open Days are your chance to find the place you will forever call your second home – they’re a pretty big deal.

As we can't host any physical open days at the moment, we made a Virtual Open Day that's packed with information. Simply join below, fill out the form and you'll gain access!

Thinking of postgraduate study?

If you are looking at doing either a Masters course or a research degree in 2021, we are hosting a Postgraduate Virtual Week from 1-5 February 2021.

Join us throughout the week to learn more about being an Essex postgraduate student and part of our global community.

Visit our event page to find out more and to book your space on this event!

However, if you do miss out, all recorded sessions and talks will be available to view after the event from this page.

Interested in our 2021 Open Days?

We're hoping (and keeping everything crossed!) that by summer next year we'll be able to welcome you in person to our campuses, letting you truly get a feel for what life at Essex is really like.
