About:

UEA campusThe University of East Anglia (UEA) is an internationally renowned UK university that provides top quality academic, social and cultural facilities to students across a range of disciplines.
 
Situated in 320 acres of rolling parkland UEA is a mini-city campus located 15 minutes from the centre of Norwich. Established in 1963, architect Denys Lasdun wanted to create the perfect community environment with everything a student would need nearby. This vision is still evident today, where students will find world-class facilities on their doorstep, such as the University Sportspark which regularly hosts international sporting events and the world-famous Sainsbury Centre.
 
This uniquely-placed University is a leading member of Norwich Research Park, one of Europe's biggest concentrations of researchers in the fields of environment, health and plant science. UEA encourages a ‘thinking without borders’ approach to innovation in both teaching and research.
 
UEA also has a long established reputation for innovation and brilliance across the Arts and Humanities. Situated in England’s first UNESCO City of Literature, UEA offers a vibrant and supportive environment with year-round literary events including UEA Live, the Noirwich Crime Writing Festival and the hugely successful International Literary Festival.

About NorwichNorwich

Among the cities many accolades, Norwich has been voted ‘One of the Best Places to Live in the UK’ (The Sunday Times 2020), ‘One of the top 10 Safest Places to be a Student’ (The Telegraph 2017), and ‘Top 10 Most Affordable University Cities in the UK’ (Study International 2019).
 
With a plethora of quirky shops, independent cafes and one of the largest open-air markets in the UK, Norwich is a city that combines community and culture. All jostling for space in a beautiful medieval setting, students can explore winding cobbled streets and ancient architecture during the day, and be a part of the cutting edge music, theatre and art scene at night. Norwich is a hotbed for arts, culture, music, nightlife and tourism.
 
Located less than two hours northeast from London by train, Norwich has great connection links to other major UK cities through road, rail, bus, coach and air. Norwich has an international airport, offering daily flights to Amsterdam and enabling students to explore the rest of Europe.
 

About England

This green land, this sceptred isle, this crucible of empire and pioneer of parliamentary democracy, is the most eccentric, extraordinary and downright intriguing place on Earth. From the Roman remains of Hadrian's Wall to London's incomparable theatre scene, England is full of astounding variety. In the cities, the streets buzz day and night, filled with tempting shops and restaurants, and some of the finest museums in the world. After dark, cutting-edge clubs, top-class performing arts and formidable live music provide a string of nights to remember. Next day, you're deep in the English countryside or enjoying a classic seaside resort. A journey through England is a journey through history. But not history that's dull and dusty – history you can feel and re-live. You can lay your hands on the ancient megaliths of a 5000-year-old stone circle, or walk the battlements of a medieval fortress – just as they were patrolled by chain-mail-clad defenders many centuries ago. Visit the sites of the legend of King Arthur, the sonnets of Shakespeare and the palaces of monarchs – past and present. Then fast forward to the future and you're admiring 21st-century architecture in Manchester, or exploring the space-age domes of Cornwall's Eden Project. (Source)
