Book your place at an Essex Open Day today

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

Our Open Days are a chance for you to tour the campus, meet our academics, view where you might be calling home, talk to current students and get a general feel for what life at Essex could be like.

2021 Open Days

We are excited to welcome you to our campuses, so why not take a look at our planned Open Day dates below and book your place now!

Our main Open Days are full days with a chance to meet academics, take part in subject talks, attend our General Talks, tour the campus, view our accommodation, and get a feel for what life at Essex could be like. Our Mini Open Days are exactly what it says on the tin, they are smaller events lasting half a day. There will be no academics present and no subject talks at Mini Open Days but there will be General Talks and a chance to tour the campus and view our accommodation.
