University of Essex
Home to the curious, brave and bold
We are determined to do things differently and put student success at the centre of everything we do.
We’re proud to be gold rated in the Teaching Excellence Framework 2017 and we're in the top 25 for research quality in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2021.
We're committed to two things: excellence in teaching and excellence in research. We put student success at the heart of our mission, supporting every student from every background to achieve outstanding outcomes; preparing our students to thrive in their future lives.
We are open about our aims and how we want to achieve them. Our strategy sets out our ambitions for 2025. On these pages you'll find more on our plans, our finance, our senior team and how we work.
