It's never too late to consider university It's never too late to consider university

Would you like to:

  • develop a new skill or build upon an existing one?
  • pursue one of your interests further?
  • keep up to date in your field of work?
  • change your career?

Whatever the reason, consider returning to learning. University study could help you gain the experience, the knowledge and the confidence to achieve your goals and fulfil your potential. UEA welcomes students of all ages and backgrounds, and operates a flexible admissions policy which takes into account your life, work experiences and studies you have participated in the last five years. You can study something that you really want to study. You can grow in skills, knowledge and confidence and get the job or career that you really want. You can change your life.
