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 and/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.

Japanese exchange students with equivalent to IELTS 6.0 (minimum of 5.5 in each category) may request Language modules only. Japanese exchange students with equivalent to IELTS 6.5 and higher may select from all modules available to visiting students.

Any applicant with equivalent to IELTS 6.0 (minimum of 5.5 in each category) or above may take modules in Economics. 

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.
