Nah its not an ex-Poly. I'm going into my second year, and i think its fantastic. Great city, not too big, not too small, great bunch of people, brilliant surroundings (especially in the summer, although 2am trips to the lake in november are very fun).
I have 3 friends on the law course, and they say its hard, but a good course.
Of course UEA isnt with the top unis like Bristol, Durham, Nottingham, Warwick etc, but i think its definatly the best of the rest.
The women are hot, but somehow disappear after the first few weeks (well in my opinion as a bachelor )
And i cant wait for the LCR to reopen!

im off to bristol in a few weeks to do law, but uea was my insurance choice. and i would have been happy to go there. i visited the uni last summer, and although it was a bit concretey (not a word i no!!) i thought it was really nice. the law building was quite impressive too, and although uea mite not have quite a good a reputation as some other unis, u could still do alot worse!!!

no, do not come to UEA. i went there last year just on a visit for an extra maths thing (im in yr13) and it is terrible. add to the fact that norwich as a city is a dump. really. a dump. i repeat, do not come to UEA unless your Law course is really the course you want and this is the ony place doing it.

And your reasoning for saying the above is?
Fair enough if you don't like a place, but other people (like me) do like it and its not fair just to write that the place is sh*t - you may think so but others don't. And I can think of far worse places than Norwich.

Well, I live in Norwich now and am going to UEA to start maths degree next week! If everyone is looking at the tables then for Maths it was 6th so really its pretty good!! It was in the top 20 overall I think! I know loads of clever people that are going there! In the area it has a brilliant reputation, the only main fault is the concrete buildings but there is still a really nice green lake area to make up for it!! I can't comment on the Law part but I know it's pretty hard to get into so can't be bad!! The reason that some of the grade offers are quite low are to allow more people a chance i think! (I did ask one of the Maths lecturers but it was a while ago!) But most of them are starting to put them up because they were missing out on the high flying students who thought low grades=bad course!! not true!!
As for the city, I think twh is completely wrong! Can't have got a proper idea of the place if only here for few hours!! There's lots of shops with posh new centre in development! And entertainment as some else has sed is brilliant on and off campus!!
So if any one else is knocking the UEA get them to read this thread coz ther are lots of people willing to correctly inform them of what it's really like!

Basically there is Oxbridge and the other med schools. Oxbridge has the traditional pre clin/clinical divide (like all med used to be), but the other have got rid of this. Nottingham seems to have a foot in both camps. At UEA they are very pro PBL, which is modern as would not suit me very well.
Thie degress are just as good as Oxfords and I do not imagine that they have any less prestige when it comes to applying for jobs a MBBS is an MBBS.
