About University of East Anglia:

The University of East Anglia is a teaching and research institution with around 15,000 students. Its campus is located in 320 acres of parkland two miles from the city centre of Norwich. The campus has won more than 20 architectural awards, while there is also ongoing multi-million pound investment to enhance research and teaching facilities. UEA was among the wave of new universities created in the UK in the 1960s, admitting its first students in 1963. The university’s core buildings, including the Ziggurats accommodation blocks composed of tiered steps, were designed by Denys Lasdun around a vision for a campus university. In 1978, the Norman Foster-designed Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts opened to the public, after Sir Robert and Lady Lisa Sainsbury donated their collection of world art to UEA. UEA’s motto is “do different” and it is known for its focus on interdisciplinarity across subjects. The university is also known for excelling in national surveys on the quality of student experience. UEA’s Sportspark, opened in 2000, includes an Olympic-sized swimming pool and hosts international events. The university’s INTO centre, opened in 2007, offers pre-degree preparation courses for overseas students planning to study for degrees in the UK. In research, specialisms range from environment and responses to climate change, through to exploring issues of family and child policy, and to investigating competition and regulation. UEA is a leading member of Norwich Research Park, a concentration of researchers in environment, health and plant science. The university hosts an International Literary Festival, where big names have included Kazuo Ishiguro, Ian McEwan and Anne Enright, all alumni of the creative writing course at UEA.
