We are Essex: home to the daring and the tenacious, a place for the ambitious and the bold. Ever since opening our doors fifty years ago, we’ve been pushing boundaries, asking difficult questions and challenging the status quo. We’re rebels with a cause.
We aren’t all talk though, oh no, we’ve got the numbers to back it up. 9 of our departments featuring in the QS World Rankings and we place in the top 20 in the UK for our trailblazing research (REF 2014). We’re also the home of the highest rated politics department in the country since records began.
