The University of Essex is one of the UK's leading academic institutions. Founded in 1964 when it opened its doors to a cohort of just 122 students at Wivenhoe Park in Colchester, the University has grown in both reputation and size, developing a worldwide reputation for top quality teaching and research.
There are now more than 8,000 students, representing over 130 countries, studying at three campuses across Essex. Academic departments span the humanities, social sciences, science and engineering, and law and management. Essex is the UK's most internationally diverse campus university, with students drawn from 130 countries.
In the most recent national assessment Essex was ranked tenth out of 136 institutions for the quality of its research while the quality of teaching was ranked eighth in the UK in the 2007 Sunday Times University Guide.
