Postgraduate taught courses at the University of Essex include a wide variety of options, typically studied over 1-2 years. Offering a pathway to a 3-4 year research degree, there are also part-time and remote learning programmes available.
The university has a dynamic and enthusiastic team of postgraduate teaching staff who are passionate about their field and are able to guide students through the complexities of their subject area with confidence. Many are involved in active research groups at the university, and on occasion a master’s student will have the opportunity to get involved in a live project.
There is a dedicated Taught Postgraduate Student Hub, which keeps students up-to-date with information and new announcements, as well as provides a platform for engagement with the community.
The University of Essex is a research-intensive institution, with three flagship centres.
Human Rights Centre
One of the first academic centres of its kind in the world, Essex’s Human Rights Centre works to promote human rights and leads international discourse into improving living conditions worldwide.
The centre was recognised for its work in 2010, winning a Queen's Anniversary Prize.
Institute for Analytics and Data Science
This centre conducts work with businesses and both local and national organisations on the management and transfer of big data, with implications in many public and private sector economies including biomedical, financial and business, ethical and legal, and socio-economic aspects of data usage.
Institute for Social and Economic Research
Established in 1989, this research centre analyses data in Economics and Sociology, and currently houses a nationwide study into the socio-economic circumstances of 100,000 individuals in 40,000 British households.
The University of Essex offers an ever-evolving schedule of postgraduate courses, and is continually developing new ways to study them. The university has managed to deliver many of its postgraduate Master’s programmes in a remote learning format, and is regularly adding more courses to their distance learning portfolio.
The university’s remote learning postgraduate students benefit from a more flexible mode of study, which enables them to study their course around existing jobs or family commitments, as well as gaining an internationally respected qualification from anywhere in the world.
