The Faculty of Science is one of the largest faculties within the University and is based in one contiguous building encouraging a ‘faculty without walls' approach to innovation and excellence in both Teaching and Research. Our focus on interdisciplinary collaboration across the University and with our partner institutes in the Norwich Research Park is one of our strengths.
Across the Faculty, our collaborative and interdisciplinary research addresses many of society’s grand challenges, as well as tackling key questions in fundamental discovery science. In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework, we returned most of our staff for assessment, and all of their research activity was judged to have international impact. 84% of the ~700 outputs we returned to the REF were judged to be either world leading or internationally excellent, 90% of our research impact was judged to be either world leading or internationally excellent, and 97% of our research environment was judged to be either world leading or internationally excellent.
The six Schools of Study in the Faculty are committed to providing an intellectually challenging learning experience within a supportive educational environment that is responsive to student needs and this is reflected in the high scores received in the National Student Satisfaction survey.
The successes of our six Schools have played a major part in the University of East Anglia's excellent reputation. Each School teaches and conducts research in a range of discipline specific areas as well as offering multidisciplinary programmes in the following subjects:
