Postgraduate taught

Applicants should have a Bachelor’s degree from a recognised institution, preferably with at least a lower second class degree or the international equivalent (although some departments may have slightly higher requirements). Some, but not all, courses require for that first degree to be in a related field. Applicants should check with the Department to which they wish to apply.

Postgraduate research

Applicants should have already completed a first degree with good grades and should also demonstrate both an interest in and understanding of the area in which they propose to carry out research. Some Departments may ask for applicants to have also completed a Masters degree, while others may be able to offer a Doctoral programme in place of this. Applicants should check with the Department to which they wish to apply.

Please note that non-native English speakers are also required to meet the University’s English Language Entry Requirements.

The University of Essex is a British public research university in Colchester, Essex. It was established in 1963 and received its Royal Charter in 1965. The university's largest campus is located within Wivenhoe Park in the English county of Essex, less than a mile (1.6 km) from the town of Wivenhoe & 2 miles (3.2 km) from the town of Colchester.

Apart from the Wivenhoe Park campus, there is a rapidly developing campus in Southend-on-Sea (Essex's largest town), and the East 15 Acting School is based in Loughton. The University's motto, Thought the harder, heart the keener, is adapted from the Anglo-Saxon poem The Battle of Maldon. The university enjoys collaborative partnerships with a number of institutions across the eastern region. These are University Campus Suffolk, Colchester Institute, Kaplan Open Learning (KOL), South Essex College and Writtle College.
