UEA Undergraduate Open Days - Talks, Tours and Demos UEA Undergraduate Open Days - Talks, Tours and Demos

Enjoy a packed programme designed to inspire. We’ve got everything from subject talks, to hands-on demos, to campus tours. You can also find out about managing your finances at uni, and get the inside scoop on all the other non-study bits of student life. Don’t forget to take a moment to explore our sports centre, the Sportspark, our on-campus art gallery, The Sainsbury’s Centre for Visual Arts and our live music venue, The Nick Rayns LCR, too.

Talks Talks

Take a class with a subject talk or two

Get a taste of what it’s like to study at UEA with a subject talk. From Pharmacy to Philosophy, Engineering to English Literature, American Studies to Art History there are over 40 subjects talks to choose from. And you can attend as many of these as you like. You will hear from passionate academic staff, discussing the subjects they love. Whatever you plan to study, this is where your subject will come to life. 

Get a jump on the financial stuff

Find out about the financial help available while you study. Discover how to get more money in your pocket. And how to look after it once it’s there. This talk is all about good planning – so plan to be there.  

Student life, and what it’s really like at UEA

Hear from someone who’s been there and done it, in this presentation from one of our student volunteers. Expect practical tips and frank advice on getting the most from life at UEA – from your studies to your personal life.  

Your career – will you be ready? 

Before you even write your first essay, or check into your accommodation for the first time, we have already begun work on your career. Find out how the careers service at UEA will help you use what you learn to find a career you’ll love. 

Tours Tours

Student halls – come on in, be at home

See what it’s like to live here as you take a look around the halls of residence. This is more than a chance to check out the rooms. It’s a chance to experience the sense of community and see how living in halls builds friendships for life. Guided tours take place throughout the day. Or you can just grab a map and go exploring.  

Read the notice boards, listen to the music, imagine the parties, be at home. 

Go off the beaten track with a campus tour

Join one of the walking tours taking place throughout the day, and get to know our lovely campus better. Don’t want to go with the crowd? That’s okay. Grab a map and explore at your own pace.
