What are you doing in the holidays?

Explore university with UEA's free Summer Schools.

We believe that attending university is the most important and possibly the most enjoyable thing you can do after school. If you haven't already decided to pursue a degree, maybe we can help to persuade you that this could be the way forward for you. Attend one of our Summer Schools and see for yourself.
