    ok when paying for accomodation can i pay the whole bulk sum for a semster's rent in 3 instalments? So like autumn semster, i wana get the rent out of the way...

    Are terms and semsters the same - confused by this
    For Students starting in September instalments will be due in October, January and May
    I can't remember the terms for which you can pay it to be honest! But yes, terms and semester are the same thing - I think technically at UEA we have two semesters, just the Spring semester starts in Jan, takes a break for easter, and then finishes after easter, rather than having the bit after easter as a Summer semester!

    As I'm local, I won't be staying in student accommodation. Will this mean that I'll miss out on things eg, making friends, nights out and socialising in general. Will people have already made friends before?
    Hi I'm a local student too and I am also worried about this 😕

    You both need to connect and you'll already have a friend in the same position I've been in the same position when I was a student - I can assure you things eventually click into place if you make the effort, it just might take a bit longer than those already living on campus

    Any kinda photo is fine really, as long as it clearly shows your face - think, not quite serious passport pic! The kinda thing they accept on railcards!

    Just be aware you'll have that photograph for 3+ years so give it some thought But yes, it's not quite as formal as a passport picture!

    It's fine for three years but once you become staff and that same photograph is on your campus card it becomes a little tired...!

    blackboard contains module information- e.g. handbooks, lecture slides and so forth.

    Evision contains your timetable, accommodation contract, coursework marks and in time your classification and overall marks for each year *

    Your timetable won't be updated until a week if not a few days before term starts. If you have optional modules in first year it might be worth looking into them (I didn't have any until second year so I can't say what happens)

    If you have your accommodation offer then go through all of that and confirm it.

    Make sure you change your password from the one they gave you to one you'll remember

    I can't think if there's anything else that's needed *

    Have a look through this site
    https://portal.uea.ac.uk/web/hub/new...undergraduates

    It covers everything you need to do before you arrive.

    Then the first week you will have an induction timetable. You'll find it on the page for your relevant school of study which you can select on here:
    https://portal.uea.ac.uk/new-student...es/your-school

    As lilGem has said your standard timetable for week 2 onwards won't appear on evision for a while- the university with be finalising details.

    Is it worth buying tickets for events now or the 1/2 week wristbands for all club and freshers events, because if I get one now and the people in my halls arent going then surely its a waste, but if I dont then I may miss out? What's your thoughts

    Same here. Still trying to figure out whether I should buy tickets or just the wristband. 😓

    Hey, I went ahead and bought individual tickets for Glow and UEA Ball. Still not sure whether I should go for week 2 or not since i'm not really a party type of person haha...

    Which events are you interested in going? :-)
