The University of East Anglia (UEA) - one of the top 20 universities in the UK according to The Guardian newspaper – has over 14,000 students across its four faculties: Medicine &Health Sciences, Science, Social Sciences and Arts & Humanities. It is a leading member of the Norwich Research Park, one of Europe’s largest single-site concentrations of world-class research in health, food and the environment.  Research in medicine and the environmental and biological sciences are particularly strong at UEA.  And the relatively new School of Pharmacy has quickly established itself as being one of the best in the country.  But the University is also very widely known for the humanities, particularly creative writing, with many prize-winning leading contemporary authors among its alumni, including Kazuo Ishiguro, Ian McEwan, Rose Tremain and Tracy Chevalier. The University was recently awarded a Queen’s Prize for Higher Education for its research and hands-on work in International Development. All academics in this field are expected to act as practitioners and consultants and can be found working and assessing development projects across the globe. Other social science schools are also well regarded.  Social Work, Law and business courses, for example, are also popular at the University, which is known for the excellence of its teaching as well as for its world-class research. There has been a good deal of investment in the University’s facilities in recent years. The Business School, for example, moved last year into a new purpose-built centre, equipped with the very latest audio-visual and computer technology, a resource centre and a Board Room and other rooms that simulate a business environment.  The University Library has been extended and refurbished for this academic year. Centrally located at the heart of the campus, the Library is open seven days a week and until midnight on six nights a week, during semesters. It incorporates a 24-hour IT area and a wireless network for laptop users and adds over 15,000 new titles to its stocks of books and journals every year. Accommodation on the University campus is of very high quality and international undergraduates who apply in time are guaranteed a room for the duration of their course. In recent years, the University has built a number of new residences and has also refurbished its award-winning older residences and its cafes and restaurants. The distinctive campus was designed so that everything you need for living and studying is no more than a few minutes away. Students do not have to leave the attractive campus to enjoy superb social and cultural facilities. The Sportspark is the biggest of any UK university, offering an Olympic swimming pool, climbing wall, courts for squash and badminton, football pitches, tennis courts, an athletics track and a wide range of exercise and dance classes. Some of the biggest names in contemporary international literature speak at regular literary festivals, and music and drama play a big role in the social life of the University. There is a lively international community of students from 100 countries worldwide and a well-established International Students Advisory team gives advice and practical support to students. It liaises with organisations such as the Home Office and the British Council and organises a year-round social programme to help students gain maximum benefit from studying and living in Norwich. The University works with its partner INTO University Partnerships to offer a full range of English language courses for international students in a state-of-the-art building.  Norwich is everything you would want of a university city: a major commercial and thriving cultural centre, steeped in history, and with an international airport. The city has many historic buildings and is situated in the beautiful East Anglian region. It has a lively and cosmopolitan atmosphere and is a safe and friendly place to live. Trains run every half-hour to London, where the University also has a central and purpose-built study centre. UEA London offers a range of courses such as the MBA in Strategic Carbon Management as well as pathway courses for international students preparing for degrees in the UK. The University of East Anglia aims to give its students an experience that is second to none and its research addresses some of the grand challenges that we face around the globe in the 21st century.
