Essex Open Days are a chance for you to see where you might be calling home, chat with students and staff, tour our campuses, listen to talks from academics and get a feel for what life at Essex is really like.
Saturday 28 October 2023
Undergraduates, postgraduates and family members - everyone is welcome.
Come along to our October Open Day Festival on our Colchester Campus to see the true spirit of Essex, the place you might be calling home. Think street food huts, mocktails, live music and society demonstrations.
Academics will be available to chat to one-on-one so that you can learn more about the courses you're interested in, and you'll be able to learn more at a subject taster with an academic teaching on the course. Head outside to the Squares in the heart of campus and soak up the atmosphere of student life on campus, join a campus tour, and meet our Students' Union to find a society you'd like to join and chat to its members. We also have a huge variety of accommodation for you to take a look around and speak with students living there this year.
We don’t want distance or cost to be a barrier, so we are offering a travel bursary worth up to £75. Bring along your friends and family and get to know Essex. We can't wait to meet you!
