UEA Outreach are very proud to hold the Young Carer Friendly Tick Award, awarded by a panel of young people from the Norfolk Young Carers Forum (NYCF). We strongly encourage Young Carers and Young Adult Carers to participate in Outreach activities and events.
Through our IncludingMe Outreach programme, we can arrange individual and group visits to explore UEA’s campus, or we can come and visit you at your school, college or young carer support group. We run free residential summer schools too.
To discuss the programme or book activities, contact Liz Ferguson, Outreach Officer - firstname.lastname@example.org or +44(0)1603 591960.
What do students think?
At a recent Young Carer Day at UEA, 100% of attendees said the visit had improved their knowledge or helped with their confidence.
What can I expect at an Outreach event at UEA?
Whether you’re visiting UEA as part of a large group, or for an individual trip, we want to work with you to ensure your experience is helpful, informative, confidence-building and enjoyable. We can address specific concerns you might have about progressing to university, and answer your questions about finance, applications, student accommodation, and more! Our friendly Student Ambassadors can give you plenty of insight into the realities of student life, and tell you what it’s like to study your favourite subject at university.
UEA offers various bursaries and scholarships to provide financial support to eligible students. Full criteria and more information can be found in our finance section.
Supporting carers and professionals
We are keen to work with young people, support workers, charity staff, local authority staff, teachers, advisers and other stakeholders, and can participate in professional development conferences, workshops and training days.
