25 REASONS TO STUDY AT UEA
With an amazing campus, excellent teaching and a university culture that supports you every step of the way, explore what makes UEA a great place to study.
1. Meet amazing people
When you study here, you’ll be part of an inclusive campus community of 16,000 students from around the world proud to call UEA home.
2. Big nights out
If you love great nightlife, you’ll love UEA. Experience the best of live music at LCR, our high-capacity venue or venture into Norwich for a great mix of mainstream and alternative clubs.
3. Campus Life
UEA’s campus is like a mini city: small enough to call home but big enough to find your niche. From the students’ union to the outstanding Sportspark, everything’s here and all in one place!
4. Norwich - the Fine City
Living near Norwich might be the best thing you ever do! Besides the historic buildings and amazing cafes that are popping up everywhere, we’re also the UK’s first UNESCO City of Literature.
5. Time to relax
Uni life doesn’t always have to be fast paced. Being on a picturesque campus means you’ll always wake up in stunning surroundings with time to relax and unwind.
6. Break a sweat
We're incredibly proud of the Sportspark, one of the biggest sports facilities at a UK university. And being one of the biggest means there’s always something new for you to try.
7. Gold-rated Teaching
We achieved gold in the 2017 Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) rankings. TEF is the new way the government recognises participating unis for excellent teaching with one of the grading components coming directly from the annual National Student Survey (NSS).
8. Get inspired
With an art gallery that features Picassos and Bacons, sculptures from Antony Gormley and award-winning architecture, at UEA, inspiration lies around every corner.
9. Feel supported
We know studying for a degree is hard work which is why we’re on hand to help you get the most out of uni life. As a student, you’ll get first-rate academic and personal support from the minute you apply.
10. Be entertained
On and off campus, there’s a vast amount to do. Norwich has two nationally recognised theatres and an IMAX cinema while campus hosts a massive array of daily events.
Winning’s great but there’s nothing like winning together. With over 60 sports clubs from football to frisbee, there’s so many ways to get involved or try something new.
12. Find your calling
Volunteering is a great way to give back and develop the people skills that employers value. Get involved with hundreds of causes on and off campus and see how your efforts can make a big difference.
13. Design classics
With the first major building designed by superstar architect Norman Foster and the Denys Lasdun designed Ziggurats, it’s no surprise that UEA was voted among the top 10 best university buildings in the UK.
14. Coffee’s up
Whenever you need a quick pick-me-up, there’s always a place to go. Hang out in the ultra relaxed Unio cafe or sip speciality coffee in the Sainsbury Centre while you admire the art on show.
15. Sustainable study
Like you, we believe in a more sustainable world. The Enterprise Centre – the most sustainable commercial building in the UK – mixes cutting-edge design with cool chill-out spaces.
