We have prioritised investment in a range of learning resources and facilities to help students develop their full potential. Our libraries at Colchester, Southend and Loughton campuses, provide 24-hour study facilities, and extensive space for individual and collaborative working.
Our new, state-of-the-art £18m STEM centre, specialist facilities for life sciences, and our centre for brain science, a new £12m sports arena that contains a sports therapy clinic.
Our mock hospital wards for health and social care students, oral health sciences lab and consultation rooms, and translation and interpreting labs for language students, provide the means for hands-on teaching in a realistic environment.
Learning technologies are widely available to our academic community to help them enhance the teaching and learning experience for our students, in the lecture hall, seminar room and in the virtual space.
These include Moodle, the virtual learning environment, Listen Again, the lecture capture and playback system, and an Electronic Voting System that lets students vote in the classroom in real-time.
