The University of Essex offers brilliant facilities of both an academic and social nature. All accommodation provides a home from home. The School of Law provide top class assistance, when needed.


I have just completed my final year of study at University of Essex, and my time here has been brilliant. Academically, the government department is one of the best in the country and well known for its excellence, but also the socialising aspect of the university is brilliant. The club and bars on campus are always busy and have things going on...
