Excellence at work

An image of our Vice-Chancellor

Inclusive and international

Internationalism is central to who we are and what we do and, at Essex, you will always find the world in one place.

As we prepare to begin for the country’s withdrawal from the EU, our Vice-Chancellor, Professor Anthony Forster, has set out his continued commitment to making Essex a home to inclusivity and internationalism.

With the triggering of Article 50 it is clear that the context in which we pursue our mission for excellence in education and research will be different, but our values remain unchanged.
