Curiosity-invoking, boundary-pushing, inspirational
We are committed to ‘research-led’ teaching, where every Essex student has direct experience of being a researcher themselves, helping our students develop critical, analytic, and transferable skills.
In 2019 we announced 100 new academic appointments, as a further commitment to enhancing the educational experience we offer to our students, while also boosting our research power.
There are lots of ways to study at Essex, from traditional lectures and seminars, to webinars and tutorials in the University's virtual learning environment, or entirely online with our partners University of Essex Online.
“The support I received from my second year statistics lecturer was amazing; she inspired me in many ways, such as how to use my resources to connect with people that have similar interests. In my final year, the teaching style was supported by thought-provoking images, interviews and talks; this was the best module I took.”
"I was very inspired by my lecturers. This was a challenging degree that needed good teaching; the subject is so large and could be overwhelming at times so it was important for the material to be as clear as possible. Things like online quizzes at the end of lectures really helped to consolidate the material.”
