Writtle College campus is a unique place. It is set in its own 220 hectare estate with landscaped gardens, working animal units, construction areas, workshops and retail, business and leisure operations.
There is a lively community atmosphere on campus, with students from over 50 different countries.
The majority of our students spend a large proportion of their course time using the diversity of the natural and built environments on campus for case study work, practical learning and hands-on work experience and business training.
Our College is a unique place. Of all the students who attend our Open Days, which are held throughout the year, 90% say they will apply to come to Writtle. The campus is a warm, friendly student village, located within a beautiful parkland campus and landscaped gardens, two miles from hectic entertainment and shopping complexes in Chelmsford and within easy striking distance of the heart of London. Writtle offers the benefits of both rural and urban lifestyles which means our students find it easy to adjust and quickly make Writtle their second home.
There is a real community atmosphere on campus, where strong bonds of friendship are made and our students are all known as individuals. Students come from 50 different countries to study at Writtle, which makes the student village a lively, cosmopolitan place to be. Through our links with academic institutions across the world, our students gain an international perspective on their studies, as well as opportunities to travel abroad.
We take pride in providing our students with valuable insight into the world of work, backed up by comprehensive careers guidance and the flexibility to specialise according to their own individual strengths and aspirations. In developing our curriculum, we call upon the advice and recommendations of national and international key players in industry via formal advisory panels. Working with the University of Essex, our academic standards and practices are constantly reviewed and Writtle maintains an excellent record for curriculum provision, teaching and learning resources.
As a result, our students benefit from excellent job prospects and employers continue to turn to Writtle first for graduates who will bring valuable industrial insight and a robust academic background to their operations.
