Writtle University College ,UK

Writtle University College, located in Chelmsford, Essex, England, was founded in 1893. "Time Tries the Truth in Everything," says the university's motto. Anne Jenkin, Baroness Jenkin of Kennington, is the University's Chancellor. In May 2016, Writtle was designated as a University College. Dr. Stephen Waite was appointed as the new Principal in Spring 2013, and when the institution was granted university status, he moved his position to Vice-Chancellor. Professor Tim Middleton succeeded him when he retired in August 2017.

For nearly 120 years, the institution has produced leaders in land-based enterprises and organisations. At the moment, Writtle has 1,000 Higher Education students, with about 80 of them coming from other nations. At Writtle, there are around 40 different nationalities represented.

It has a strong worldwide reputation, and many of its former students have senior positions all around the world. Facilities include a farm, equine resources, animal therapy barn, research laboratory, library, lodging, and creative studios, all of which are spread on a beautifully manicured 220 hectare property.

Services for International Students

Pre-sessional English courses, which include travels to London and Cambridge, are offered by Writtle to international students in preparation for academic study. Students will be assisted in settling in by demonstrations of how to use University College amenities such as the library, computing services, sports, and other recreational facilities. Along with your degree, Writtle also offers free English courses to help you enhance your English skills while you study.
