In response to COVID-19, the University of East Anglia has made the difficult decision not to host on campus short programmes and events for visiting students until at least 31 August 2021. This decision will be reviewed on 31 March 2021 regarding the delivery of on campus winter 2021 programmes.

We will be pleased to discuss the creation of a virtual programme for during 2021 for a group of your students, or to discuss future on campus programmes. Full details of programmes offered and how to get in touch with us can be found below.

Dates, Arrivals and Departures

We annually welcome groups of students to UEA for summer study between June  - August, for programmes one week to four weeks in length.

Arrivals and departures take place each Saturday during this period, and a group transfer to Heathrow or Norwich airport will be provided. If you wish for your group to arrive or depart on a different day then a supplement will be added to the programme fee.

Group Size

The minimum number of students we require to attend a customised programme is 15. Maximum numbers depend on the type of programme requested and the on campus teaching facilities needed.


We would be pleased to welcome visiting academic or administrative staff to accompany residential programmes and can offer a subsidised fee for their stay. In addition to UEA taught programmes we can also welcome faculty led programmes, joint teaching programmes or offer UEA guest lectures.


We require all students to be aged at least 17 on the official start date of the programme. Programmes will be taught in English so a minimum level of language skills may be necessary. 


Fees are dependent on the specific requirements of your group, contact us and we will provide details specific to your needs.
