Congratulations

All your hard work has paid off and soon you’ll be starting your studies at Essex. Whether you are arriving at our campuses or studying remotely, we’ve got everything you need to make sure you have an amazing time.

As a campus University we can't wait to welcome all of our students back on to one of our three campuses for the beginning of the new academic year.

We expect our students to join us on our campuses for the start of term, and we are optimistic that progress in the rollout of the UK vaccination programme and the gradual transition back to regular life pre-pandemic will make this a possibility.

While we expect all our students to return to campus next year, we will continue to offer a level of flexibility for students unable to arrive at our campuses for the start of term owing to COVID-19 restrictions for example, travel restrictions; to start their learning remotely.
