A PLACE TO CALL HOME

A friendly, easy-going and safe place to live that combines history and modernity, Norwich is a vibrant city with plenty to do and see; from live music, to big eats, to art. Easy to explore on foot, and with a beautiful river at its heart, you won’t be short of things to discover while making it your own.

You can also chat to our students about their university experience to get a better feel for the place.

GREAT CONNECTIONS

Many of our courses feature an industry placement option which will enable you to gain invaluable industry experience (and sometimes get paid as well) – while businesses get a chance to discover your talents. When our students graduate, they take with them a network of lifetime connections, both personal and professional, and our CareerCentral service is focused on making sure you’re ready for your future career.

SOMEWHERE YOU’LL BE SUPPORTED

We know it’s been a tough couple of years, but we pride ourselves on our support services and wellbeing initiatives, so we’re always ready to help. We even have our own on-campus support dog, Boomer! He’s quite the celebrity around here, and the perfect companion for emotional support and to lend a paw.

THE RIGHT CHOICE FOR YOU

Listen to your heart as well as your head, and if you’ve got a strong feeling about a place, go for it! It’s going to be your new home for the next few years, so it’s important to choose somewhere you feel comfortable, rather than just listening to what others have told you.
