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.

Essex has established a global reputation for pioneering research which helps change lives.  We are also proud to have the highest-rated politics department in the country, be top 5 for Social Science and top 20 for research.

Our global community attracts students from over 135 nationalities and our outstanding ‘living and learning’ environment develops exceptional graduates with the skills and knowledge to change the world. The annual Summer School in Social Science Data Analysis and Collection, attracts faculty and students from all over the world as does the human rights centre.

Up for a challenge and want to make a real difference? Welcome home.
