Inclusive social activities:

The International Summer School is a rigorous academic programme, but we also want to make sure you get to explore UEA, Norwich and Norfolk while you are here with us! We organise an inclusive social programme so you can get to know your fellow students, experience Norwich and the surrounding area, and relax between academic classes. All of these events are included in your fee and open to everyone.
