UEA is a truly global university – we’re proud to have over 3,500 international students, who come from over 100 countries around the world. We’re first choice for so many international students because not only do we have very high academic standards, we’re also a safe, supportive and enjoyable place to study.

UEA is a well-respected British university with a strong heritage in both research and teaching. We are ranked in the top 15 universities in the UK, according to The Times/Sunday Times 2018 and Complete University Guide 2018 league tables, and globally we are in the World Top 200, according to the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2017.

We know that your university experience will be quite different compared to students who already live in the UK, and so we do everything we can to help you settle in and enjoy your university experience.

Our friendly international support team organise trips and activities to help you make friends quickly and see more of our beautiful country. They can also help you with practical matters such as registering with a doctor or opening a bank account.
