University of the Month: The University of Essex celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2014

University of Essex

The University of Essex is ranked 22nd in the world among universities 50 years old or less, in the Top 50 most international universities (both THE 2014) and 2nd in the UK for student satisfaction in 2013 in the National Student Survey. We are ranked number 1 in the UK for the quality of our research in Sociology and Politics and in the Top 10 for many other disciplines, including Language and Linguistics, History, Economics and Accounting and Finance. We offer an ideal location less than one hour’s journey time from central London from each of our three campuses (Colchester, Southend and Loughton) but with living costs significantly lower than central London. We guarantee accommodation on campus for all years of study for international students and our accommodation is all within a few minutes’ walk of the main teaching buildings. Our International Academy offers a wide range of preparatory English language and pre-degree pathway programmes. The University has students and staff from more than 130 different countries and we take great pride in being one of the UK’s moist internationally diverse universities.
