University of East Anglia (UEA) Reviews

More Info

UEA has consistently been rated as one of the best universities for student experience in the UK (National Student Survey), and was recently voted as having the UK’s best campus environment (Times Higher Education 2016).

At UEA we have invested in the things that matter to our students, such as IT facilities, a 24 hour Library, a network of Student “hubs” for academic support, and a Careers Service offering internships and mentoring that encourages student enterprise.

With over 200 clubs and societies, a Students’ Union with an excellent reputation for live music and events, a £30 million Sportspark, and an art gallery on campus, we think UEA offers an amazing experience, and so do our students.

Part of the reason for our happy students is the city of Norwich. It’s a beautiful, historic city located in the East of England. It offers our students the best of both worlds, being a small city with a friendly community spirit that also boasts the culture, nightlife and shopping of a much bigger place.

Norwich is England’s first UNESCO City of Literature and has been voted one of Britain’s top 20 cities (Telegraph, 2016) as well as one of the UK’s top 10 safest cities to be a student (Telegraph, 2016). The Norwich Lanes also won the Great British High Street award for Best High Street (2014) and the city teems with independent shops, restaurants, art galleries, bars, cinemas and theatres.
