Online community

Alumni online community

As an Essex graduate there are lots of ways to keep in touch, and the best place to start is by registering on our alumni website and making sure your details are up to date.

Get involved

We love for our alumni to come and share their experiences and expertise with our current students, through alumni panels or career events. Or perhaps your company is recruiting and can offer internships for Essex students? We’d love to hear from you.

Contact us if you’d like to support our current students.

Benefits for alumni

All Essex alumni are able to access thousands of academic journals and books through JSTOR, by signing in to the Essex Alumni website. With a friend finder service and our full events calendar available too, make sure you’re signed up to access all your alumni benefits.

Class of 2017

If you graduated in 2017, we’ve created a whole new programme to support you before and after you graduate, and help you take the next steps in to the world of work.

We need your help

Each year, we ask for your help to promote your department and the University to next year’s potential students. We’ll be contacting you in relation to the national Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey - either by post, e-mail or telephone - to see where you’ve moved on to after university.  

Please visit our website to make sure your contact details are up-to-date.
