The University of Essex is a dual-intensive University giving parity of esteem to education and research. Our mission is to contribute to society through excellence in education and research and we perform strongly in both. We are proud of our commitment to educational excellence and placing student benefit at the heart of what we do and challenge ourselves continually to do better. We work closely with our Students’ Union and together aim to provide a truly transformational education, encompassing academic and extra-curricular, so every student has the opportunity to fulfil their potential.
The University is committed to ensuring parity of esteem for education and research. They have developed an inclusive and reflective community of scholarly practitioners working together to share, develop, and innovate in relation to their teaching, constantly striving to understand and enhance their practice. These values are embedded in all the University’s staffing processes and initiatives supporting education.
“Students are at the heart of everything we do and being selected as a finalist in these awards underlines our global reputation and is another tribute to the transformational education we deliver at Essex."
Professor Aletta Norval, Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Education)
