To help prepare you for your new life as an Essex student, we’ve put together some pre-arrival information so you can get your questions answered and start planning ahead from the comfort of your home.
We are proud to be a global community and we recognise that living and studying in the UK may be very different from your own country. Make sure you read all the guidance for new international students to help you arrive and settle in to your new life at Essex.
If you have a disability, specific learning difficulty, long term medical condition or mental health condition you can register with our Student Wellbeing and Inclusivity Team before you arrive so that we can consider your support needs. Find further information on what is available:
Our Student Directory is full of information to help you during your time with us. With information on how to get started, where to find support, and anything else you might need too, it's the place you'll find all the answers.
To help you, we've put together a list of useful things you might need from the Directory for your first few weeks.
If you need any further help and advice, please contact or visit the Student Services Hub who will be happy to assist you.
