Academic Details:

UEA has a number of subject areas open to exchange students in the arts & humanities, social science, and sciences. Many of the modules are hands-on, encouraging students to take control of their own learning and put skills into practice. Research-led teaching is at the heart of the university’s pedagogy. Students apply for modules during application and will be asked to provide a number of alternative choices. Some modules require prerequisites, and spaces on other highly sought after modules can be limited due to popularity.

Study Abroad and Exchange students are required to register for a full course load. A full course load is 120 UCU (credits) per academic year, or 60 UCU per semester. This is usually equivalent to three modules per semester. (Source: University of East Anglia Incoming Brochure 2018-2019)

Note: both undergraduates and graduates may participate in this exchange program, however, graduate students may only access undergraduate courses at UEA. Graduate-level courses are not open to exchange students.

Housing Details:

All international Study Abroad and Exchange students have the opportunity to apply for on-campus, self-catered accommodation, subject to availability and preference.

Boasting award-winning architecture, the university residences contain a fully furnished, centrally heated, single or twin room, with a shared kitchen/living space. Rooms are spacious, comfortable, and safe. All our kitchens are equipped with fridge, freezer, and oven or microwave, and students provide their own cooking utensils, crockery, and cutlery. All on-campus rooms have access to free wifi and are approximately a 5-10 minute walk from the centre of campus, and a 20 minute bus journey from the city centre.

Students have the choice to stay in privately rented accommodation. UEA Students’ Union co-ordinates the Home Run Lettings Service which helps students find vetted private accommodation in Norwich. It is recognized by UEA and many students as the best way to find quality, affordable housing whilst studying in Norwich. Home Run has a no fees policy, so you will not be charged fees for the set-up of your housing contract. (Source: University of Anglia Incoming Brochure 2018-2019)
