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.
Although ongoing measures to tackle COVID-19 mean we can't hold large scale open days on campus at the moment, visiting the University of East Anglia's Virtual open day will really give you a feel of what life is like at UEA. You'll get to tour the campus, meet and chat with other students and check out the accommodation options. Academics and students have also produced a wide range of resources about the subject or subjects you are interested in. You'll find out lots of information about life at UEA, from our Admissions experts talking about applying to university and all things finance to our Students Union and Sportspark teams giving the low down on Student Life.
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
As one of the most vibrant and attractive cities in Europe, Norwich is famous for its historic cathedrals, 12th century Norman Castle and well preserved ancient city walls. It has everything that you would expect from a university city - excellent shopping, a great night life and a vibrant music scene. As well as being surrounded by beautiful English countryside, Norwich is just a short drive away from the North Norfolk coast. It is a vibrant cultural centre, whose highlights include its internationally renowned literary heritage (Norwich was the first English UNESCO city of literature), museums and galleries (including the UEA’s very own Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts), theatres, music venues such as the UEA’s own LCR, numerous cinemas, its beloved football team (the Canaries, otherwise known as Norwich City Football Club), and too many festivals to list. Food lovers can find Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Lebanese, Indian, Moroccan and Thai delicacies in restaurants around and about the city, and you will also find lots of independent coffee houses and some great little bars too.
