We are proud to call Norwich and East Anglia home. Our research, alumni, students and colleagues all contribute towards public understanding, economic growth, health and well-being in our region and beyond. We provide engagement opportunities through our busy cultural and educational programme.


  • Community Screen Forum
    The aim of the Community Screen Forum is to support the delivery and curation of high quality screen experiences in under-serviced areas that are relevant for the local community, and to continue to widen the accessibility of public exhibition for films and other screenings.
  • Consultancy and contract research
    We're dedicated to working with businesses to combine excellence in research and innovation with a vibrant enterprise culture. Virtual Past, The Landscape Group and Make are specialist consulting groups in the Faculty; and academics also offer individual expertise to help businesses solve problems and innovate.
  • Day of the Girl Norwich
    We are an inclusive group who work with all sections of the community to address and advocate for girls rights locally, nationally and globally. International Day of the Girl takes place each year on the 11th of October, but throughout the year we can offer a range of workshops and other activities for schools and community groups.
  • Drama performances
    Thanks to the student-led companies of Minotaur, the UEA Drama Society and Sacré Théâtre there are lots of opportunities to enjoy drama performances at UEA every year.
  • Eastminster blog
    Expert political analysis and information about our latest research alongside posts from our students, and politicians, practitioners and activists as part of our ‘perspectives from the field of politics’ series.
  • Exhibitions
    On campus at UEA is the outstanding Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, which hosts regular exhibitions and displays, as well as collections of modern and world art. Our academics often curate exhibitions at other museums and galleries – such as the Manga exhibition curated by Professor Nicole Rousmaniere at the British Museum in 2019.
  • Green Film Festival
    An exciting programme of free screenings and events in May each year, presenting and bringing together intersecting interests in environmental issues and film.
  • Crito Project
    Founded and led by Dr Ben Walker, the Crito Project has been providing philosophy education in prisons since 2013. We believe that education is the most effective method of reform available to us as a society, and that it has the power to alter people's self-perception, their future, and the lives of those around them.
  • Media engagement
    Providing articles and commentary or on-air appearances.
  • Music at UEA
    In addition to providing Practice Rooms for all students and staff, and connecting students with music tutors, the Music Centre has its own choirs and orchestra open to students, staff, and members of the community to join (some by audition only). The Music Centre runs a busy concert programme throughout the year.
  • Languages at UEA
    Learning a language at the University of East Anglia (UEA) couldn't be easier. We have a great reputation in the field of languages and our tutors are friendly and approachable, giving you a positive learning experience – find out more about the range of languages and courses available to the community.
