4. Where will I live while I study my postgraduate degree?

Being a postgraduate student is about so much more than gaining a degree, it's about growing and finding your place.

You'll join a thriving community of over 4,000 postgraduate students. There's a dedicated postgraduate branch of our students' union to help you build friendships and find any support and advice you need during your time at UEA.

When you're making your choice of university, it's important to think about:


Do you prefer a campus or city university?

UEA is the perfect university to tick both of these boxes - it's a campus university just 2 miles away from the city centre. 

UEA's campus has everything you need within walking distance, including shops, bars, cafes and stunning green spaces to explore. There are also transport links from campus which can take you into Norwich city centre in 15 minutes. 

Norwich is a safe, diverse and friendly city, with so many amazing places to experience and enjoy. Once you have a look around the city, we're sure you'll love it as much as we do!
