Welcome to UEA

UEA has nurtured independent thinking since 1963.

A vibrant community united by difference, we celebrate diverse voices and backgrounds, challenge convention and call for positive change.   

For 60 years our students have found their place at UEA, found their world in ours. Now it’s time for a whole new cohort to find a community to call home. 

Meet friends through sports clubs and societies, take care of your mental health and wellbeing at student-led workshops, get top tips and advice from the Student Information Zone – and make UEA yours. 

Welcome to UEA.


Our world-leading research

UEA research is making real-world impact.

That’s why 91 per cent of UEA research has been rated 'world-leading' or 'internationally excellent' by the Research Excellence Framework (REF2021). We’re also in the UK top 20 for research quality*.

UEA is a globally significant centre of research that drives global change. We bring fresh thinking to the major challenges facing society, helping to create a better future for all.

UEA’s world-leading research covers science, health and medicine, social sciences and the humanities. It addresses some of the biggest issues facing society today, from transforming the lives of children in state care to providing the global temperature records which inform international climate change policy. 

We also have an enduring culture of working beyond subject and geographical boundaries. We think without borders.
