The University of East Anglia (UEA) is a campus-based university with a global reputation for its excellent academic, social and cultural facilities, delivered to more than 15,000 students from over 80 countries, with over 4, 000 making up its postgraduate community, one of its central strengths. This research-led uni is part of Norwich Research Park, one of Europe’s biggest communities of researchers in the area of environment, health and plant.

Facilities on campus include Britain’s greenest building, The Enterprise Centre, plus the University Sportspark, which has an Olympic-sized swimming pool. There’s also the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, a famous public art museum situated right on campus, beside UEA’s picturesque lake. With Norwich being England’s first UNESCO City of Literature, it’s no surprise that the uni also hosts an international Literary Festival, which has featured world renowned authors such as Ian McEwan, Kazuo Ishiguro and Anne Enright (all alumni of UEA's Creative Writing course).
