University of Essex Open Days 2024

Hey!

If you're thinking of visiting Essex for an open day, here's some info for you ๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽ“

Whether you're finalising your place for 24/25 and want to come for another visit before you start in October, or you're in year 12 and starting to think about your applications for next year; visiting for an open day is for everyone ๐Ÿ˜Š

We run mini-open days throughout the academic year, and offer holder days when you've received a conditional or unconditional offer from us. There's also the Clearing Events coming up in August ๐Ÿคž

The big open days are held just a few times a year and are definitely worth a visit. Last year was a festival theme and it was great fun! โ›ฑ๏ธ๐Ÿญ๐Ÿฌ

How to prepare to visit a university!

Check out a recent blog on the Essex webpage written all about what to expect at Open Days or Offer Holder Days.

Attending an Open Day or Offer Holder Day can be a brilliant way to not only learn more about your subject, find out about student life and accommodation but, more importantly, to see if you like the university and could imagine yourself studying there. If you havenโ€™t been to an Open Day before, you might not know where to start, so weโ€™ve created this guide to help you.

We are also always her to help if you have any questions about Open Days at all ๐ŸŽ“๐Ÿ“š
