University of East Anglia is 23rd best university according to The Complete University Guide however in reality it's probably seen as hovering around about 35-40th best. 30-40th if I was being kind. For entry standards it's ranked 48th (65%). For research quality, it's 17th (84%). For research intensity it's joint 48th (56%), which is only 1% less than Glasgow, although Glasgow's research quality is higher (10th on 86%).

Then it's Manchester Met. 60th best university. For entry standards, it's joint 54th on 63%, which is actually above Leicester (joint 59th) and Reading (joint 66th), which shows how popular Manchester can be with some people as a city to live. For research quality, it's joint 48th on 78%, which is actually above Aberdeen (59th on 76%). But for research intensity, it's joint 85th on 36%, which is well below Aberdeen in 7th place on 73%. Basically, if you have a much smaller percentage of staff conducting research, it's much easier to have great research quality overall if you've managed to control what research gets published by them too.

Then it's Cardiff Met. 71st best university. For entry standards it's 59th on 62%, joint with Leicester, which shows how popular a capital city can be with some people as a city to live. For research quality, it's 78th on 71%. For research intensity, it's 100th on 28%.

Then it's Birmingham City. 90th best university. For entry standards it's 68th out of 130 universities, on 61%. For research quality, it's joint 93rd on 67%. For research intensity, it's 119th on 19%.

Which course would you be studying?
If you've got the grades for Leicester, I'd consider going there instead. The city centre itself doesn't have a lot to it but the accommodation and campus (the campus isn't just on the outskirts of the city it's in parkland on a long road inbetween the city and the accommodation) are great and it used to have its degrees awarded by the University of London. It also has several claims to fame such as developing DNA fingerprinting, finding the body of Richard III, having a hand in the National Space Centre, and having thd architecturally famous Engineering Building by Stirling and Gowan. It's a top 10 university for Medicine, Languages, Archaeology, History, and perhaps even English. UEA also has a good name for English.
