Induction into your department is an essential part of Welcome week.

Your department induction is a compulsory part of Welcome Week. Come and find out more about your course, meet key members of staff and meet the people you’re going to be studying with.

Studying more than one subject? If you're studying a joint degree, you should access key support through your home department. If you're not sure which is your home department, you can find out on MyEssex.

Welcome to Economics

We are looking forward to welcoming you to our Department of Economics in the coming weeks.

We have organised a schedule of talks and activities throughout Welcome Week, that will let you meet your lecturers, peer mentors, our professional services colleagues, and the Students' Union
