Whether you study Humanities, Sciences or Social Sciences, you'll find a wide variety of exciting modules and gold-standard teaching open to you at UEA. 

You must request at least 9 module options per semester of study. This is more than you will take in a semester, but we ask for extra choices in case some of your choices are full or unavailable.

All visiting students are required to be enrolled in a full courseload (120 UCU per year or 60 UCU per semester). This is usually equivalent to three modules per semester.

Undergraduate modules come in three levels: Level 4 (first year), Level 5, and Level 6 (final year). Please ensure you are choosing modules at an appropriate level.

Erasmus students must select the majority of their modules within the subject area to which they have been nominated. Non-Erasmus+ students must ensure that 2/3 of modules are in a single subject area.

Most of the schools listed below require visiting students to have an English language score equivalent to IELTS (The International English Language Testing System) 6.5 and higher (with an equivalent to at least 6.0 in each category).

Any applicant with an English score equivalent to IELTS 6.0 (minimum 5.5 in each category) may take modules in Economics. Japanese exchange students with IELTS 6.0 may also request Language modules.

If you're studying with us for the Autumn semester, you won't be able to take exams as our exam period follows the Spring term. If you're interested in a module with an exam and you will only be here for the Autumn, please ask us whether it is possible to have an alternate assessment for that module.

For information on grading, UEA credits and how they relate to ECTS (The European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System), visit our ETCS webpage. View our UEA timetable slotting system for more information.
