To help new students feel settled as they start their journey in September, UEA hold a fantastic programme of events for undergraduates known as Welcome Week.

Starting university can be a bit overwhelming, so Welcome Week will help you find your feet and start to make friends - all while you get to know UEA.

If you are arriving for the spring semester, your induction events will be arranged by your study programme.

Based in the heart of campus, teams and departments from across the university and Students' Union holding drop-in sessions to answer any questions you might have, and run workshops where you can get to know like-minded people and try new things. 

Key sessions will be repeated throughout the week so you don’t need to worry about missing out - Welcome Week is designed to work around you! Not sure how to get to a particular building on campus? There will be campus tours throughout the week to help you get to grips with UEA's beautiful campus and make you feel confident in navigating around your new home.

Welcome Week is a fantastic chance for you to grow in confidence and begin to meet your people as you become part of the UEA community.
