About the University of Essex and Scholarship

A public research university located in Essex, England called the University of Essex was one of the first plate glass institutions, founded by royal license in 1965. The motto, “Thought the harder, heart the keener,” is taken from the Anglo-Saxon epic The Battle of Maldon, and the university shield is made out of the historic arms that are assigned to the Kingdom of Essex. Wivenhoe Park, Colchester serves as the main campus, and there are three campuses spread around the county: Southend-on-Sea, Loughton, and Wivenhoe Park.

Students who fund their own MBA courses at Essex Business School beginning in October 2024 or January 2025 are eligible for fee savings ranging from 10% to 100% of the total tuition charge. A tuition fee reduction will be provided as the award.
