Please note:

The Autumn semester at UEA is less than 90 days long. This has been recognised by the European Commission but if your home university is not able to accept these dates for grant purposes, we strongly recommend you discuss this with your home institution.

Spring semester only and full year students should be aware that the assessment (examination) period is part of the Spring semester, and students are expected to remain for this period.
