About the Program
The University of East Anglia is situated on the outskirts of the medieval city of Norwich which is the perfect combination of cosmopolitan and small town atmosphere. With a friendly environment, you’ll have a true sense of community and no shortage of activities as UEA is home to the country’s biggest university sports complex and an active student’s union with over 100 clubs and societies.
You’ll study in a location where medieval mixes with modern. Explore along riverside walkways, gardens and parks, and museums and galleries or catch a show at the Theater Royal. Many of the ancient buildings of Norwich now serve as shops, restaurants, and cinemas.
Areas of studies are great for liberal arts majors.
