University of Essex Online provide 100% online and part-time courses to both UK and international students, with no requirement to travel to assessment centres. Our students benefit from a flexible approach to learning while receiving the same dedicated support they expect from a top UK university.
We achieved a gold rating in the government’s Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), for delivering consistently outstanding teaching, learning and outcomes for our students (TEF 2018). This rating is the highest possible an institution can achieve.
We currently offer conversion degrees in Computer Science and Cyber Security, and we also deliver shorter courses for these subjects: a Postgraduate Certificate (PG Cert) and Postgraduate Diploma (PG Dip) which can be completed in as little as 8 or 16 months. Each course is a respected standalone qualification and a great stepping stone onto the full Masters degree.
