Students can now apply to study at the University of Essex, one of the UK's most innovative and exciting universities. Applications are now open for pathway courses starting from September 2018, leading to both undergraduate and postgraduate degrees.

International students can qualify and prepare for a degree at the University of Essex by studying a pathway course on campus at the new University of Essex International College. If they have very good high school grades, they can even take an International Year One at the College, which leads directly to the 2nd year of an undergraduate degree.

Students can apply using the application form. Find out more about our new partner below.

The University of Essex

Essex is a true innovator among UK universities. In fact, it was founded in the 1960s to challenge the dominance of the traditional, elite ‘red brick’ universities. It has been extremely influential since then, and is a highly regarded institution.

It’s also an incredibly welcoming place for international students, and is ranked in the top 15 in England for student satisfaction (National Student Survey 2017). It leads the way for international outlook, being ranked 2nd in the UK and top 20 worldwide (Times Higher Education 2018).
