Our VP Education

Have your say

If you’re a final year student you can now complete this is year’s National Student Survey.

The survey takes a snapshot of students’ views from across the UK and we want to know what you think.

So, make sure you tell us about your experience at Essex, and have your say.

Need another incentive? For every survey completed, we’ll donate £1 to charity.
