All your hard work has paid off and soon you’ll be starting your studies at Essex. Whether you are arriving at our campuses or studying remotely, we’ve got everything you need to make sure you have an amazing time.

Following the latest Government guidelines, we are currently restricting the number of students allowed to start face-to-face teaching to subjects where a face-to-face component is absolutely essential, with most students not being permitted to return to on-campus university teaching.

Face-to-face teaching will be scheduled for the following courses only:

Within the School of Health and Social Care from 4 January:

  • Nursing 
  • Allied health professions (excluding SRES)
  • Oral health
  • Social work 

Within the School of Sports, Rehabilitation and Exercise Sciences, from 18 January:

  • Physiotherapy

For all students who are not studying on the courses included above, the UK Government has said that you should stay where you are if possible and study online until at least mid-February. Please check your department page for more details.
