Norwich: a fine city Norwich: a fine city

You'll love Norwich!

There is a lot going on in Norwich. A busy city with a real character all of its own, Norwich is friendly and lively. Just by walking around the centre you can see the historic reminders of its past with two cathedrals, a Norman castle and city walls, as well as its present with the stunning Millennium Library at the Forum overlooking busy shopping streets, bustling cafes and restaurants. 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. 

Location, location, location

UEA is situated on the edge of the county's capital and is just a short bus ride or a leisurely walk away from the city centre. Norwich represents the perfect balance of rural and urban; with the university itself benefiting from a variety of wildlife, flora and fauna. 


UEA has strong links to industry and students can experience a variety of vocational and career-oriented training and events, from internships, placements and days away at established industries.

Things to see and do

There are plenty of opportunities to catch live music or theatre and the city is teeming with modern and traditional pubs, The local football team Norwich City, are a top flight club and suitably befitting such a wonderful city and county, which was recently ranked as the safest place to live in the UK. Our students love Norwich so much many stay long after their studies.

"UEA is located in a really beautiful city. I have enjoyed studying with students from other countries and learning about their cultures, something that would not have been possible if I had continued to study in Japan. This allowed me to learn and practise English rather than just studying from within my own home country. I particularly recommend UEA to anyone that likes nature or the countryside yet enjoys all the conveniences of a modern city. I promise you, it is impossible to get bored here!"
