    the whole point of the self certifying form is that you don't need to supply evidence
    Ah ok so I just fill out most of it apart from sections 4,6,7 & 8?

    You need to do everything apart from the bit where it asks what evidence you are submitting in support of your application.

    Hey! I have received my conditional offer from UEA and am planning on accepting it as my firm. I've done some research on the surrounding area and would like to know how close the beaches are and if so, are there any water sport activities?

    Thanks,

    Great Yarmouth is 30 mins on the train, Cromer I'm not sure- not too far in a car but you couldn't bring a car with you in first year anyway. As for water sports there are loads of clubs offering water sports- Kitesurfing, Sailing and Powerboating, Sub Aqua, Surf, Swimming, Waterpolo, Windsurf, Waterski and Wakeboarding

    Cromer is about 50 minutes on the train, and then Sheringham is about an extra 15minutes along. You can also get a Bittern ranger ticket (for Sheringham & Cromer) which will allow you free unlimited usage of the coasthopper (and bittern line trains) for a day to allow you to get to places like Holkham, Wells, Holme etc. (Which are 10 times better if you're purely after a beach compared to the 3 which are traditional seaside resorts). There's also lots of buses from Norwich to the beaches on the east coast like Horsey (great to see the seal pups in winter), Sea Palling etc.

    GY is great if you're after the amusements, but Cromer and Sheringham are so much nicer and...less run down in general Also if you want to hire out on a boat for a day (a lot cheaper than you expect) on the Broads you can get a train/bus to Wroxham.

    I may have traveled along the Norfolk coast a lot last year

    Very helpful, cheers! I'll definitely keep in mind of the day ticket. How much is it normally? and what do you think of the student environment and whether there are any opportunities' to hike and do some camping?

    haha, I know I have so many questions, sorry! a bit too excited

    Would you say that there is a good mix of academics and social life at UEA because I've heard the union and social life is great but is it still a good focused working environment? The most important thing for me is really the course
    Thanks

    I would agree with what you've heard. There is a good social life but also the study side is good, and you are able to focus more on one if you wish. What subject are you planning on studying? Someone may be able to give more info about that course on here.

    Hey! I was wondering if the foundation courses have reading weeks, and if so, does anyone know roughly when they would be? I've made 'humanities with a foundation year' my firm choice, with a view to do History of Art. had to take a third year due to health issues, so UEA was the ideal solution! Really excited about September x
