I’m Laura, your TSR representative from UEA (University of East Anglia). You might have spoken to me before on our Twitter and Facebook channels, or on WhatsApp during one of our Open Days. If you have any questions about applying to UEA, or the university in general, please feel free to ask me on the UEA forum or in a private message. I’ll also be dipping in and out of the forums on Student Room to offer advice where I can. As a UEA alumnus and staff member, I should be well placed to help. Why not tell us a bit more about yourself? Whether you're applying now, making your choices, or you're a current student or alumnus, we'd love to hear from you.
Visiting the University of East Anglia on an open day will really give you a feel of what life is like here on campus. You'll get to tour the campus, meet and chat with other students and check out the accommodation options. Academics and students will also be available to talk with you about the subject or subjects you are interested in and share their enthusiasm for the subject and experiences.
If you accept a place at the university you will also be invited to join an Applicant Day which will go into a little more detail about your course.

Student Life in Norwich
A busy city with a real character all of its own, Norwich is friendly and lively.

For culture-curious students, the collection at the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts on campus includes internationally-renowned works of art alongside special exhibitions throughout the year. Within the city of Norwich itself, students can wander round Norwich Cathedral, the Castle Museum as well as indulge in its many culinary hotspots.
Norwich also boasts a range of cinemas to catch the latest big screen blockbuster as well as theatres such as the Norwich Playhouse which covers everything from comedy to musicals. Norwich is a great student city with a vibrant nightlife. With everything from cocktail bars to clubs, students will be spoiled for choice.
