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.

Student Life in Norwich

A busy city with a real character all of its own, Norwich is friendly and lively. Rated as one of the UK's safest cities, Norwich is large enough to host lots of major events, such as literary and live music festivals, but small enough for students to quickly familiarise themselves with the many shops and tourist attractions.

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.
