Essex forever

Our graduates live and work across the globe, shaping the world with the skills and knowledge they gained here. We’d love to hear what you’re doing now and so would our prospective students who may be wondering what an Essex degree might do for them. Please complete our graduate profile questionnaire.


We hold events in the UK and around the world, including speed networking, our popular Sports Weekend and an annual reception at the House of Lords.


Sign up for your free Alumni Card which gives you access to events and benefits on and off our campuses – including the Careers Advisory Service, Students’ Union and library.

Our news

Our University's free, annual magazine for all alumni, Essex Effect, is an entertaining and irreverent look at what’s happening here – and what alumni across the world are up to.

Thousands of alumni get our e-newsletter, Essex Extra, which goes out every two months. It’s the best way to keep up to date with what's happening. If you don't receive it, we don’t have your current email address, so make sure your record is up to date.
