Description

The University of Essex is a public research university in Colchester, England. It was established in 1963. The university is spread over three campuses in Colchester, Southend and Loughton and each of these campuses has its own theatre.

Moments away from the Colchester Campus lies Wivenhoe Park, home to a wide range of plants and wildlife. The park was once painted by artist John Constable and this painting now hangs at the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC.

There is a high percentage of international students, coming from around 140 countries to study at the university and a third of the students are from outside the UK. Some 14 per cent of the students come from the rest of the EU.

The courses available are organised into three faculties: humanities, science and health and social science. Within these three faculties there are 20 different schools and departments.

The university holds a number of partnerships with more than 100 higher education institutions from around the world in China, France, Germany, Japan, Russia and Singapore.

Students can join many different societies and sports teams including table tennis, fencing, lacrosse and American football as well as less traditional sports such as korfball and ultimate frisbee. Student sports teams are known as the Essex Blades.

The student union has won national awards and many bands such as Pink Floyd, The Kinks and Blur have played in the union.

The university can count two Nobel Laureates, as well as filmmaker David Yates, author Ben Okri and architect Daniel Libeskind, as alumni.

I studied Sports and Exercise Science at this university and graduated last year July (2017). The student satisfaction at this university is second to none, they always went above and beyond especially during exam season. There were tea and coffee angels, a study BBQ and bouncy castle - they were just great. The location of the university also allows you to walk almost everywhere - the town, supermarket and any other places you need. I lived on campus in my first year which was extremely handy and then moved into private housing for my final two years. Overall Essex has been a great university to me and I believe will keep getting better, if any of you see this please do not forget to keep the students as your main priority, we may act like we don't care but we genuinely do brag about you to others! Thank you Essex, you were great to me.

At Essex uni, the Lecturers and campus are very good. Facilities are good and silberrad is very useful. The biggest letdown is living in Colchester. Not a great area as there is very little to do and is a bit dodgy

This university is located in a small village and far from Chelmsford station with a poor transport system. the curriculum was okay but mainly this university requires and expects very academic quality and behaviors. Some teachers seemed unwilling to answer students' questions about assignments or make students understand it fully, they told us doing assignments is purely Student's Work that have to sort it out. Most of feedback was unfair and did not make sense, in terms of marking, they are not very generous. sometimes they expect unordinary things in an assessment that they have never taught during the class. sometimes they are obsessed with tiny behavior or unimportant things (eg: using an ink pen instead of a ball pen, cutting a picture with 90 degrees) and it affects marking. some of them were very unkind, unhelpful and unprofessional, felt like they are here to fill the working hours. all the buildings are very old and there are not many suitable rooms for a each of different class. it is hard to expect diversity.

Overall a good university with a wide variety of nationalities. Professors are good in general, but the grading system is very bad as the feedback provided is usually very vague. Accommodations are really good and reasonably priced.

This is a great place to study, live and learn, there is great accommodation on and off campus, a wonderful large library building, 24 Reading rooms, 24 hours labs to study. Waterstones, banks, restaurants, laundromat, tennis courts, football courts, as well as world class gym, sports facilities. The teachers are passionate and invested, here you can learn and grow without ivory towers, but stellar staff and faculty.

UoE has helped and support me in gaining opportunities that have taught me new skills when applying for legal jobs. There is a range of activities to keep you busy throughout the year and schemes that you can join to put on your CV. The staff and students are friendly and the course is difficult but very interesting and rewarding. I would recommend going to this university as it equips you for a legal career.

I started Essex in 2016 for a 3-year undergraduate degree, I loved it so much I began a 1-year postgraduate in 2019. The lecturers are fantastic, so knowledgable and genuinely want to help you succeed. The campus is beautiful and makes you feel lucky to live in such an area. Social activities are a huge highlight of Essex and make it so easy to make amazing friends. Student accommodation is constantly being updated and is a pleasure to live in.
