all your hard work has paid off and soon you’ll be starting at essex. whether you are arriving at our campuses straight away or if you need to study remotely for a short time we’ve got everything you need to make sure you have an amazing time.

your health and wellbeing stay at the heart of everything we do. that’s why we’re working on the safest way to welcome all our new students from around the globe to essex.

essex is a campus university, and we'll continue to offer a transformational on-campus experience from this academic year. the changes we have made to support you and protect your health and wellbeing mean that, for most of our courses, this will include blended learning – with lectures, classes and other teaching taking place both online and face to face. much of this teaching will be offered “live” (even if online/ virtual) but will also be available to access at times that suit you. how long you are able to study online for is dependent on your department or course, so please check your department page for more details.

our flexible approach is also designed to support you to continue learning if further outbreaks of infection occur during the year. this means you can join us in full confidence that you can continue and complete your programme of study.

one of the first things you'll need to do to let us know you are coming to essex is to complete your registration. registration opens on the 8 december and we’ll email you to let you know you can register online with us. once you're registered, you’ll have access to our online welcome portal where you can start exploring where you’ll be studying for the next few years and meet your department.
