Essex provides a home for the tenacious, the bold, the inquisitive and those impatient for change. By asking difficult questions, we break intellectual boundaries and together extend the frontiers of knowledge, pioneering solutions to issues of global concern. We give our students genuine licence to take intellectual risks so that as well as learning how, they challenge why. At Essex, our students discover the world in one place; they develop a cultural sensitivity along with a genuine world view that prepares them for life as global citizens. We believe that curiosity can be as profound in creating change as experience, so at Essex, our students partner with academics, informing and actively participating in research. We equip our students with the skills to research, stimulate their curiosity to question conventional wisdom and nurture their desire to pursue new ideas; enduring life skills which prepare our students for personal and professional success.
