University of Essex

Ranked in the top two per cent of world universities, and celebrating our 50th anniversary in 2014, the University of Essex has established a global reputation.

Our pioneering research helps to inform policy and change lives in the UK and overseas. Placed in the top ten UK universities for research quality, and top for social science, we are an international community for original thinkers.

In 2013 we were awarded the only Regius Professorship for political science by HM The Queen.

Research is integral to our teaching, providing a transformational living and learning experience which empowers our students with the skills, knowledge and curiosity to build successful careers and lead fulfilling lives.

Our students ranked Essex second in the UK for overall satisfaction with their courses in the 2013 National Student Survey. With more than 12,000 students from 130 countries, Essex graduates develop a genuine world view.
