WHY CHOOSE UEA?
WE EXCEL IN TEACHING
The university was awarded a gold ranking in The Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) in 2017. TEF is the Government’s new method of assessing the quality of teaching delivered by higher education providers.
The voluntary rankings rate institutions gold, silver or bronze and they are designed to give students better information to help them decide what and where to study. One of TEF’s key components is the annual National Student Survey (NSS), which gathers undergraduates’ opinions about their course.
WE CARRY OUT WORLD RENOWNED RESEARCH
UEA is 10th in the UK for quality of research outputs (Times Higher REF 2014 analysis) and UK Top 25 for research quality (Times Higher REF 2014 analysis). UEA research is embedded in our outstanding teaching and connects our world-leading academics with society, government and industry.
Focused around six themes our research spans the global challenges that we face; from meeting the needs of an ageing population to understanding the unique and fragile environments we live in and tackling energy, food and water security so we can make the best use of our planet’s resources.
