I would not have got my new role as a CEO without the leadership and management practice I learnt on the course. I have learnt so much from the course and have put it into both my professional life and personal life in so many ways.

Fees and Funding

We know that in any decision you make to study, but many part-time students living in England don't have to pay any tuition fees up front. Instead, you can apply for a tuition fee loan to cover the cost of your studies.

And if you’re not eligible for a tuition fee loan, we've got a simple monthly payment plan to spread the cost of your fees. If you'd rather pay upfront, you'll get 10% off the full course fee.

We want to give everyone the opportunity to experience a University of Essex Online course. We think you'll love it! But if, within the first 21 days, you decide it's not for you, you'll receive a full refund.
