Discover our platform

Unlike a traditional campus-based university environment, our online learning courses utilise a virtual learning environment. Our online platform enables both students and tutors to actively take part in real-time conversations, listen to and view recorded lectures, and take part in live question and answer sessions.

Our library

The Kaplan Online Library is an online resource available to our students. The library services offered allow you to access additional resources such as online journals, databases and eBooks.

Current students can also access the online library resources available from the Albert Sloman Library using the University of Essex student details supplied by your Student Adviser.

We’re here to help

Here at University of Essex Online, we’re always looking for ways to help our students with their online learning and careers.

As a result, we’ve created two completely free eBooks for you to read. You can read them below.
