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.

As a campus University, we are therefore looking forward to welcoming our new students to one of our three campuses for the beginning of the new academic year.

Our courses will be taught in a way that allows us to blend face-to-face teaching in smaller groups, with a range of online lectures and other learning activities. The flexibility we are building into our teaching means that we can adjust how we deliver our courses to ensure we keep our University community safe.

We also know that some of you may not be able to travel to our campuses for the start of term. Therefore, all class-room based teaching will be delivered online so that you can start remotely and join us in person when you are able to.

We hope that by taking this approach, you can plan with confidence.
