The University of Essex was born during a rare moment of national hope and enthusiasm in the early 1960s, when everything seemed possible and new departures seemed essential. Our campuses at Colchester, Southend and Loughton are all different, but they all share the same approach to delivering an exceptional learning experience.

The University of Essex is ranked are 2nd for Student Satisfaction and we are one of the top 3 UK universities for research in social sciences according to the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) published by the UK government. The university exhibits an international character with 132 countries represented in its student body. Essex is among the smallest multi-faculty universities in Britain and was a member of the 1994 Group. Despite its small size, Essex has developed an international reputation for teaching and research. The annual Summer School in Social Science Data Analysis and Collection, now approaching its 41st year, attracts faculty and students from all over the world as does the human rights centre celebrating its 25th year.
