With bold expansion plans for the future Essex is the one to watch. Crowned University of the Year 2018 in the Times Education Awards 2018. Rated Gold in the TEF 2017
Proud to be the 15th most international university in the world with our cohort of nearly 16,000 students.
Students come to Essex from a diverse range of backgrounds, including 30% from areas that typically send very few students into Higher Education. 37% of our students come from low income households and a significant proportion of those are the first in their family to come to university. Having taken this bold step; 80% of our students go on to gain good degrees at Essex.
Lives are transformed at Essex. Our unique campus communities boast students from 170 different nations. This diverse community allows our students to make international contacts and develop an understanding of other cultures equipping them for an increasingly globalised labour market.
Last year's Careers Fair was our biggest and best yet with over 1800 students and graduates through the doors in the space of just a few hours, there really is no better way to raise your brand profile on campus.
Open to all years as well as recent Essex graduates this Fair is for recruiters and their representatives with insight opportunities, placement years, summer internships, graduate schemes and other graduate jobs and opportunities relevant to our student body, as well as professional/membership bodies able to provide careers information, advice and support to our students.
