University of Essex Online

About us
University of Essex Online provides 100% online and part-time courses. We are one of the longest-running providers of wholly online degrees in the UK. All our courses are specifically designed for online delivery, combining gold standard teaching with the latest technology and enabling you to gain a top-class education from anywhere in the world.

You can study with us from anywhere with an internet connection and at a time that suits your schedule best. Your course will be delivered through a state-of-the-art virtual learning environment (VLE), which provides you with 24/7 access to high-quality resources, including lecturecasts, discussion forums, live seminars and Q&A sessions, as well as an extensive eLibrary.

Even your assessments will be completed entirely online – none of our courses have a requirement to travel to testing facilities or exam centres. In fact, you won't have to sit exams at all! Instead, you will submit assignments through the VLE, such as written reports, discussion forum participation or reflective journal entries.

Whether you're an experienced professional looking to progress your career or a recent graduate who wants to boost their CV, online study is a cost-effective, convenient and flexible way to get ahead.

Our courses
We provide 100% online programmes in various subjects, including business, computing, education, health, law, criminology, and psychology. The qualifications we offer include CertHEs and Bachelors degrees at undergraduate level and PG Certs, PG Dips and Masters degrees at postgraduate level.

Within the field of computing, we deliver conversion degrees MSc Computer Science and MSc Cyber Security that can be achieved in 2 years. We also offer shorter courses in these subjects, a Postgraduate Certificate (PG Cert) and Postgraduate Diploma (PG Dip), which can be completed in as little as 8 or 16 months respectively. These shorter courses are respected standalone qualifications and great stepping stones onto the full Masters degree.

Why study with us? 

We’re proud to be rated Silver in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF 2023) undertaken by Office for Students (OfS). This recognises our commitment to delivering high quality student experiences, with outstanding ratings achieved for learning environment and academic support – as well as teaching assessment and feedback.    

Our online tutors are leading authorities and specialists in their respective fields. They are passionate about what they teach and combine their knowledge of industry practice with high-quality academic delivery, offering you an unparalleled learning experience.

Our team of dedicated student advisers and study skills specialists provide world-class mentoring and academic support to you from your first day to graduation. The team will be on hand to help and guide you as you progress through your studies. Whatever the question or issue, they will work with you to find a solution.

All our qualifications are awarded and validated by the University of Essex, an award-winning university with a 50-year heritage of teaching and research excellence. Upon completing your studies, you'll be invited to graduate at the University of Essex's Colchester campus. You will receive the same certificate as campus-based students – your mode of study is only mentioned on your academic transcript.
