Frequently Asked Questions
How do I apply?
Is there a course deadline?
Do I need a visa to attend a short course at UEA?
Unless you are an EEA national you will require a visa to study in the UK, even for a short time. Whether you need to apply for your visa in advance from outside of the UK depends on your nationality. For some nationalities, it is not compulsory to apply for a visa before travelling to the UK to take a short course (applicants of these nationalities are referred to as 'non-visa nationals'). However, for some nationalities you must apply for a visa before travelling to the UK (applicants of these nationalities are referred to as 'visa nationals').
Whether you are a visa national or a non-visa national you will require a letter of acceptance from UEA to enable you to obtain the correct visa. If you are a visa national your visa will be issued at the UK Border. If you are a non-visa national you will need to apply in your home country.

What is your cancellation policy?
Every advertised short course requires a minimum number of bookings for it to cover its costs and run. In the event a course does not achieve a minimum number of bookings, we reserve the right to cancel the course up to 4 weeks before the course start date and will notify applicants by email. In case of cancellation by UEA, all course fees paid will be refunded.
We reserve the right to make changes to courses such as moving location (within reason), changing tutors or amending the schedule.
UEA’s total liability to the participant in respect of any losses arising from or in connection with the short course shall in no circumstances exceed the value of the course fees. UEA will not be liable for any costs incurred with respect to travel, subsistence, visa applications or accommodation. Please ensure you maintain or take out the necessary insurance to cover such losses.
If you wish to cancel your place you must put your request in writing no less than 6 weeks prior to the start date of the course, in order to receive a refund. An administration fee of £150.00 will be charged for all cancellations.
Are there health facilities on campus?
There are only first aid facilities on campus, If you are from a non-EEA country, you are advised to take out medical insurance as you will be liable for private charges for the NHS treatment you receive in the UK except in a medical emergency and this is limited. Please note also that optician and dental charges are not covered by any reciprocal agreement and may be very expensive.
You may not automatically be able to receive a prescription for medication that you have been prescribed in your own country.
