About
In many ways a classic ‘Plate Glass’ school, Essex became a university in 1965 and has since invested to become a well-regarded institution in the south of England. Academically, the university ranks well in several social sciences, including Government/Political Science and Sociology. Student life features one of the most active Student Unions in the country which, among other initiatives, has been able to attract a long line-up of bands (incl. AC/DC, Radiohead and Iggy Pop) to perform at the university. These concerts are among a long line of student-led events arranged on- and around campus. As a student at this institution you’re sure to have an entertaining experience.
