We are currently 6th out of all UK universities, and have been placed in the top six since the survey began.
We are an internationally renowned university based on a campus that provides top quality academic, social and cultural facilities to over 15,000 students.
Located in 320 acres of rolling parkland just two miles from the centre of the cathedral city of Norwich, the University is part of the Norwich Research Park which is home to nearly 3,000 scientists working in several world ranked institutions.
UEA is ranked in the top one per cent of universities in the world and is consistently in the top ten for student satisfaction. We are a leading member of the Norwich Research Park, one of Europe's biggest concentrations of researchers in the fields of environment, health and plant science.
Sporting facilities on campus include the University Sportspark which houses an Olympic-sized swimming pool and regularly hosts international sporting events. UEA also has the world famous Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts and hosts an International Literary Festival which has included famous names such as Ian McEwan, Kazuo Ishiguro and Anne Enright (all alumni of UEA's Creative Writing course).
An exciting new partnership between Deutsche Telekom (DT) and academics from the University of East Anglia (UEA) and University College London (UCL) has led to the development of a free mobile app designed to collect data to inform dementia research.
