UEA is a top 20 university in the UK and is placed firmly inside the top one per cent of universities globally. One of the key parts of that success is the fact that we are a research intensive university, where the teaching is led by academics who are highly active within their fields and students are encouraged to undertake their own research.
UEA is part of the wider Norwich Research Park, which is home to the UK’s eighth largest hospital, several world-class centres for plant and microbial sciences, the country’s premier food research institute and one of only two Genome mapping centres in the UK, all of which you can read more about here.
This stellar concentration of scientific power has made Norwich the most cited research centre outside of Oxbridge and London and presents opportunities for collaboration in training, teaching, and developing a common Norwich Science Vision. Due to the success of the Norwich Research Park, UEA was ranked in the top 50 institutes for research citations in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2015-16.
