Students Staff

Be the best you can be

Every student arrives at Essex with the same spirit of determination but different experiences of education and levels of academic readiness. It's natural for you to progress through your studies excelling more in some areas than others.

The Talent Development Centre can help you identify your talents and strengthen those areas you need to develop. We offer support and resources to improve your writing, maths, research, study skills and English language.

Together we'll build a lifelong commitment to learning that will sustain success throughout your academic life and career.
