Students at the University of Essex, studying at one of the university's three welcoming campuses in Colchester, Southend-on-Sea and Loughton, are well placed to acquire a wide range of skills to help them take on life's academic challenges. The university fosters its students to develop as individuals, to learn from their peers, as well as think for themselves, and live more independently.
International students are warmly welcomed with an active calendar of events that starts in the very first week of term. Throughout the years that follow, students are encouraged to reach their potential with study support, careers advice and high-quality facilities and teaching.
Thanks to the university's location on the eastern outskirts of London, students are well placed for visits to the city in their free time. Meanwhile, each campus has everything that's needed for study and leisure. There is a wide variety of undergraduate and postgraduate courses on offer, from Computer Science to Nursing, Criminology and Marine Biology.
Students progress through their courses by attending lectures, seminars, and group learning sessions. They also have access to a wealth of facilities across the Humanities, Science and Health and Social Sciences faculties.
