Excellence at work

We're 22nd in the UK

We’re proud of our Essex Spirit – so it’s no surprise it has played a key role in us securing our highest ranking of 22nd in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018.

If that wasn’t enough, we’re also shortlisted for the Guide’s prestigious title University of the Year.

The Good University Guide provides the definitive rankings for UK universities and the most comprehensive overview of higher education in Britain.
