The University of East Anglia can be found at its parkland campus only two miles away from the centre of the city of Norwich – known as the cathedral city and the first UNESCO City of Literature in England.Show more
The programme provides students with opportunities to study a wide range of texts, both within the UK and across a variety of different countries and nationalities. It really does broaden students horizons. However it doesn’t necessarily cater that well to the variety of students taught, as some resources are inaccessible and academics do need to get better at ensuring that their seminars fit the range of neurodiversity within the student body.View more
Coming to the UEA was not something I had planned to do, but I can honestly say that it was the best decision ever that I have made! It provides a superb study environment and all the lecturers are so helpful. I’ll definitely recommend the UEA to any of my friends or family members who is finding the university to study at. Other than studying, there’s also a variety of Societies that you could join too. Joining Societies may brighten up your uni life as well.View more
They covered a decent base of creative practices, but there was a heavy focus on Meisner. Meisner, is an acting technique for the screen, and bearing in mind there is only one module in the whole three years in which you do act for the screen it seems as though they’ve chosen the wrong acting technique to focus on when the school predominantly produce plays.
There are a few lecturers who really stand out in this program. From the performing staff, it is Mike Bernardin who is an excellent member of staff, and I truly believe the whole course would fall apart without him. Then, from the scriptwriting perspective the two lecturers who are the most helpful are Molly Naylor and Professor Steve Waters. I thoroughly enjoyed all of the modules taught by these lecturers and would happily take them again.
The program overall was good. I enjoyed the content which was taught and had a great time at UEA.
In the drama department, there are very few international students or any people of color at all, (which is a larger problem we face within the arts). LDC is running a decolonizing initiative to update and diversify the curriculum, and throughout the time I spent at UEA they did make a lot of progress when it came to addressing a wider variety of content.
The social life within the Drama department however is FANTASTIC. There is always something happening on campus, always a show to go to, opportunities to learn new things, or an event, or a workshop, and generally speaking, the coursemates become really close.
It was great preparation for me to take on further studies, and a path into other education opportunities. But, I would say if you are looking to only do an undergraduate degree and go straight into work (within theatre) look towards a drama school or a school in a larger city.View more
I think it’s a good uni, nice buildings, facilities and bar, plenty of societies and sports to choose from as well. I do wish the uni was more punctual on emails or calls when there are matters of urgency and needed assistance, I don’t trust that my problems will be resolved quickly if I contact the uni. I also wish that we could be made aware of what times cleaners are coming as they just appear whenever which is quite inconvenient.View more
I’ve had the two best years of my life so far at UEA. The campus has everything you need, there are lots of nice spaces to be and it has a certain charm that is hard to describe. They have a wide range of sports clubs and societies to join, being part of the tennis club has been one of the highlights of my uni experience. The quality of teaching is generally pretty good, and the workload is manageable apart from a few hectic months at the end of the semesters. Each student has an academic advisor, which is a very useful thing to have, and he helped me a lot when I wanted to change my course.View more
Great support from Student Support Centre. High quality science as the University is situated in Norwich Research Park and works closely with all NBI (Norwich Bioscience Institutes). Even though I am registered at UEA, I am based in the John Innes Centre which is one of the leading research institute in the plant science.View more
Social life is second to none. Events like derby day and pimp my barrow make studying at the university of east Anglia unique. Joining a club is the best thing to enhance student life and the nightlife is so diverse you never get bored.View more
I’ve loved my time at UEA. Medium-sized campus meaning there’s plenty to do but only takes about 20-30 mins to walk from one side to the other. A wide range of courses – I study science and have access to high tech labs and top researchers. Staff care about students and have time for individuals. Most faculties have good facilities. Norwich is a lovely, student-friendly city – again, it’s medium-sized. Enough to do (plenty of restaurants, clubs and activities) but all areas are easily accessible and it feels safe.View more
It’s (I think) quite a small uni which I love because you always bump into people you know..obviously there’s still thousands of people you don’t know so it’s not weird. There is an amazing community feel with EVERYONE going to the campus club on Saturday..there are clubs in town that everyone goes to in the week. The societies are great and the nightlife is more about the people…I come from a big city and would say I was underwhelmed by the nights out at first but have now found people that make every night out hilarious and nuts so now go out about 5x a week. Would say in general everyone’s v friendly. Campus gym is quite a peak, quite small and always busy. The campus is SO UGLY BUT SO BEAUTIFUL – the buildings are so ugly and concrete but the lake and the grounds are honestly amazing and wonderful to spend time there during the summerView more
