    If you get accepted to UEA, do they require an interview? I'm applying for business management if that helps

    What's the nightlife like at UEA? Going to the open day tomorrow but obviously won't learn much about the nightlife!!

    I like it

    If you're used to a big city you might find it a little limited, but there is still a choice of clubs. Plus the union has it's own club nights for students, some various types of music, some themed with fancy dress. There are also about a million pubs and other things to do, like cinema, bowling, theatre, restaurants, bars, socials. I really liked it but I am not used to city life so it may not be a fair comparison!

    Hey guys,

    I was supposed to attend an open day at UEA today and find out more about the UNI and it's pharmacy department. But, I ended up not being able to go at the last minute will that affect my ucas application as I cancelled the booking and didn't attend?

    Thank you!

    Hi!

    I didn't realise UEA had a japanese course until very recently and so thinking of applying there now as I really like Norwich.

    As it's a pretty new course I can't find much about it on forums etc..

    I was just wondering how any of you were finding it so far?
    First impressions etc?

    Thanks
    I'm also interested in that question.

    I don't know what course should I do, I only know I'm applying to UEA can you please help me?

    Hi im a UEA student and im confused a little about the sportspark. Im on a pay and you play membership.

    So when i go in do i pay the receptionist then go through the turnstile or do i used my card through the members turnstile then pay the receptionist on the other side if that makes any sense.

    Also how much would a meal be at the cafe below zest, say chips and a main dish?

    dw, took me ages to remember which ones were blend/zest/hive/vista! haha guess she loves Chapelfields & Castle Mall then, as you go in on the ground floor, and then can come out onto street level on one of the upper floors.

    I THINK it's 4.95 for the main and two sides...I THINK. I've never actually bought anything from Zest just seen posters walking past it.

    I can confirm it's £4.95 for a main, which will be something like curry with rice popadom and naan, pasta with a choice of sauce, bread and salad, a massive pizza slice with wedges and salad, roast dinner, etc.

    I really like their food, and there's always plenty of choice. They also have salad bar or soup options which are cheaper, they do pick and mix breakfast and I think chips are always available with sausages etc which I think is a bit cheaper than £4.95. There's a loyalty card where you buy 10 main meals get one free, which is decent if you decide to eat there often.

    The into building on campus also does meals and they are usually a but cheaper though I haven't been in there this year.

    Hey all,

    I am hopefully going to UEA in September next year, is there a place I can keep my road bike secure or are we allowed to keep them in our halls rooms? Noticed there is a cycling club so they must keep theirs somewhere. Read that they can be a 'fire obstruction' in some places.

    Cheers

    There are loads bike racks all over campus and then there are two main lock up sheds which you need to know a code to get into - one in the middle of campus and one in the village. You can't keep it in your accommodation, but they'll be a rack right outside so you'll be fine.

    literally everywhere you turn there's a bike rack! a lot of them are hidden under the walkways as well, or behind buildings. There's a secure shed near Nelson Court-LCR-Launderette area and also one in the village, there may be more but I'm not sure on their exact location. To use the secure ones you'll need the code from security.

    Without sounding too sinster , are there many bike crashes in winter due to snow/ ice? Or are the UEA pretty good at gritting pavements.

    Hopefully i dont have to pretend to be a car because the roads are gritted so much better in my home town
