If you have been made an offer to study at Essex, you will receive an email from us inviting you to a Virtual Applicant Day - we would still like to meet you even though we can't run on-campus events at the moment!
Our Virtual Applicant Days will be running on the following dates for all subjects:
Wednesday 5 May
Wednesday 2 June
The event will begin at 4pm when you will join your departments' Zoom sessions for an hour. The following two hours you will be able to explore our online platform at your own pace, and attend other live talks (see timetable below).
To book, head to your myEssex portal and book onto your preferred date. If you haven't set up your portal yet, click here and select 'register'. Once you’ve booked, you will receive an email confirming the date of your Virtual Applicant Day, and a Zoom link for you to join in the first hour. There will also be a link to the Virtual Applicant Day platform which you will be able to access any time, but remember to head there after your Zoom meeting for some live general talks and the opportunity to ask staff questions.
This is an informal event, so feel free for your parents/guardians or friends to join too.
If you are a joint degree applicant or have applied for multiple courses and want to attend a different departmental applicant day, or if you have any issues booking your place, please contact the Applicant Day Team and we'll get back to you as soon as possible. Please also get in touch if you can't make any of the upcoming dates and we'll let you know other ways you can get involved.
