A helping hand

The Student Services Hub team are friendly and approachable, and there to help and advise you on any welfare issues you might have whilst at Essex. They provide confidential, impartial advice and support on a wide range of things, no matter how tiny or big the concern.

They’re trained to help you with everything from immigration and financial problems to adjusting to university life, as well as providing support and guidance for students with a range of needs so that they have a fantastic experience at Essex.

The University is an incredibly supportive place to study, and it’s so reassuring to know that there is always help available. We recently won a Times Higher Education Award for Outstanding Student Support and I definitely think it was well deserved. Academically, I’ve found staff to be really approachable and more than happy to help. My tutors have always been willing to meet up and discuss my work, or offer help where needed.

Students studying at a partner institution

We have many students studying for a University of Essex award at one of our academic partner institutions. To find out about the support services available to students studying with one of our partners, please contact the relevant partner institution directly.
