NEW DELHI, January 27, 2022 — The University of Essex, a dedicated UK-based public research university that supports the overall development of students, is extending its School Membership Scheme in India to offer structured support and engagement with more schools.

The University’s School Membership Scheme creates an exclusive network of schools and colleges worldwide. The University of Essex offers focused support to students, teachers, and counselors based at member schools.

Each year, the University of Essex works closely with the partner schools to ensure the members are up-to-date with current higher education issues. It provides extra support and advice on undergraduate UCAS (Universities and Colleges Admissions Service), Clearing cut-offs, scholarships, scholarships, personal statement writing guides, and revision guidance. In addition, partner schools and colleges receive invitations to upcoming activities they can engage with at the University.

In addition, there are priority visits from the University of Essex’s India-based Student Recruitment team, bespoke virtual/on-campus visits for school counselors or academic staff, and regular newsletters for members.

Member schools get an invitation to the University of Essex’s Annual Teachers Conference, which provides unique networking and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) opportunities both in-person and virtually. Essex also offers travel bursaries to travel to the University’s Colchester and Southend Campuses.

There is no cost associated with membership. The participating schools are only required to actively participate in the scheme, attend member events and engage in the network activities.

Schools actively participating in the program include:

- Delhi Public School, Gurgaon
- Delhi Public School, Vasant Kunj, New Delhi
- St. John’s High School, Chandigarh, and
- Stepping Stones School, Chandigarh.

Sandeep Sharma, Director of Student Recruitment and Partnerships - South Asia at Essex, said, “The School Membership Scheme is a critical element of our work to expand engagement with schools and colleges in India. The membership offers them opportunities for knowledge exchange, guest lectures from leading academics at Essex, sponsorship support for events, and academic scholarships for their students.

“By engaging early and actively, we believe we will be able to add value to the counseling support offered by schools while helping their students make the best choices regarding their undergraduate study overseas.”

“We are looking to welcome 15 more schools each year over the next two to three years through our scheme, and we’re looking forward to working with a growing number of partners in India.”

Founded in 1964, the University of Essex is one of the UK’s leading universities. The University maintains three campuses at Colchester, Southend, and Loughton. Essex has three faculties that deliver excellence in teaching and research: the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, Science and Health, and the Faculty of Social Sciences. It has close to 1,000 active researchers and 17,000 students from over 140 countries, with an alumni strength of over 100,000. It was named the University of the Year at the Times Higher Education Awards 2018 and in the top 25 for research quality in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2022.
