University of the Year?

You've helped us secure a place on the shortlist for University of the Year at the Times Higher Education Awards - the most prestigious awards in the sector.

Our students, graduates and staff are the secret to our success as we've carved out a distinctive path for Essex which inspired the judging panel.

We're going from strength to strength - welcoming record number of students this academic year and also attracting record levels of research funding.
