Making the most of your University open day
Choosing a university will be one of the biggest decisions you will make about your education. Attending an Open Day is a great way to get a feel for the campus, the students and the courses on offer. You can spend the day exploring the campus, surrounding areas and of course asking questions about what life at UEA is really like. The day is an informal and fun way for you to get an insight into university life. We're looking forward to seeing you there.
Don't just take our word for it . Read UEA Student Lia's Get the most from your Open Day blog.

Take a look at one of our recent Open Days and see for yourself what to expect.
All open days run from 8:30 - 16:00 and you can spend as much time on campus as you like. Most people stay for a few hours to get a feel for the campus. You don’t need to book onto any talks – you can just use the programme to plan your own schedule.

After you’ve been to the Open Day you can either hop on a bus or walk into town to explore our glorious city. We are just 3 miles from Norwich city centre, a short bus or taxi ride from Norwich rail or bus station.
We’ve partnered with First Bus to offer you free all-day bus tickets on the city network for you and your guests to explore the city of Norwich on your open day. UEA is on blue line 25 and 26, with buses every 10 minutes to the city. Once you have registered for your open day, you will receive an email with instructions on how to download your free bus ticket.
If you decide to travel by train, the blue line 25 or 26 bus stops just outside Norwich rail station and will bring you right onto campus. The journey takes about half an hour. When you reach UEA, get off at the main UEA campus bus stop opposite the main car park and follow signs for check-in.
If you would like to spend a night in Norwich, you can stay right here at Broadview Lodge - our on-campus guest accommodation. Special open day discounts are available. Book your room at Broadview Lodge.
You can also stay in Norwich city centre, which is 15 minutes away by bus or taxi. See Norwich hotels.
