University of East Anglia (UEA)

Student review
By luvestry

The course itself has been so interesting that I can't wait until the second year when the content looks even more fascinating. The environment is welcoming. All services you would ever need can be found around campus and their opening times are amazing - especially in a bind! The library is open really late and it's super quiet so it's the perfect place to study, and the range of books they stock is remarkable!

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.

UEA's Open Days - Book Your Place

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.

UEA Travel Info

The fine city of Norwich is located in the heart of East Anglia, approximately one hour from Cambridge and two hours by train to London. It has its own international airport and great transport links.

UEA’s campus has regular buses to Norwich City Centre and the train station. It takes approximately 20 minutes by bus or by bike from the campus to the city centre. It also has regular buses running from the campus to London.

The city has been voted one of Britain’s 20 best cities (Telegraph 2017), and named one of the best places to live in the UK (Times  2018) – so it’s a great place to choose to study your degree.

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.
