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.

Unfortunately, as it's not possible to visit us in person at the moment, we've made the difficult decision to cancel all campus-based Open Days in 2020. However, we are hosting a series of Virtual Open Days where you can get to know Essex from the comfort of your own home.

We know that no digital experience will replace seeing Essex in person, but our Virtual Open Days will give you the chance to speak to academics (September and October), staff, and current students, listen to talks, and tasters as well as tour our campuses and accommodation.

Whether you're thinking about joining us through Clearing or interested in coming to university in 2021, we've got a Virtual Open Day to suit you...

Can't visit us?

We get that it's not always possible to come and visit us, so why not take a virtual look around?
