Clearing Open Days

Colchester Campus

  • Saturday 19 August 2017
  • 11am to 3pm

Our Open Day will be held in the Ivor Crewe Lecture Hall on our Colchester Campus. Tours of our campus and accommodation will be running throughout the day and will be led by our current students, allowing you a real insight into life at Essex.

Academics will be on hand in the Ivor Crewe Lecture Hall between 12pm and 2pm to discuss your course with you and answer any burning questions you might have. Please note, only subjects that had Clearing vacancies on our Colchester Campus will be represented at the Open Day.

You don't need to book before attending the Open Day, just drop-in. We recommend using the main entrance (.pdf) to the campus near Wivenhoe and parking in the Valley Car Park, as this is closest to the venue. There will be no charge for parking.

If you're unable to attend the Open Day then we are holding informal tours which you can also attend.

Southend Campus

We will be holding informal tours of our Campus on Friday 18 August and Monday 21 August 2017.
