The Program
  • The University of East Anglia (UEA) is the number one university in the UK for student satisfaction in the 2013 Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey
  • UEA is highly regarded for Creative Writing and Literature, Communication and Media Studies, Environmental Sciences, and Art History, amongst other departments
  • With over 150 clubs and societies, a Students' Union with an excellent reputation for live music and our very own museum and art gallery on campus in the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, UEA offers an amazing student experience
Your Host City: Norwich
Norwich is one of the main cities in East Anglia, on the east coast of England. Its history dates back to the Romans, and traces of the medieval city can still be seen in Norwich cathedral, castle, and city gates.  Much of the best of what England has to offer can be enjoyed in the modern city: history and tradition, easy access to countryside and the coast, plenty of restaurants and shopping, and a thriving open-air market.  Norwich’s Millennium Library is one of England’s finest, and the city’s art school makes for a lively cultural scene. Should you find yourself in need of a weekend break, London is less than two hours away by train.


Academics
In order to have an idea of what classes are available, you should visit the University of East Anglia website.

When looking for course, be sure that you are looking at courses for undergraduate students only and that you are looking at classes in the correct term of study. Full-year courses cannot be taken by single semester students.

United Kingdom Universities are typically on a three-year system; thus, courses listed as “Level 1,” “Level 2,” and “Level 3” do not necessarily translate into first, second, and third year courses in the American system. Students in the past have recommended taking courses at Level 1 or Level 2.  Unlike the U.S. university system, universities in England offer upper-level courses at Levels 1 and 2. Courses at Level 3 tend to be rather advanced, much like our graduate courses, and students should pay particular attention to prerequisite requirements.

You will need to be sure that you are registered as a full time student according to UEA and Rutgers University. That means that you will take 60 UEA credits or 15 Rutgers credits per semester.  The credit translation system between UEA and Rutgers University is 4:1, meaning a 20-credit course at the University of East Anglia will be a 5-credit course on your Rutgers University transcript. A regular course load at UEA is 15 credits per semester. It is not possible to take classes as not-for-credit or pass/fail.

For information about Study Abroad credit transfer, registration, and transcripts please visit the Academics section of our website.


Academic Calendar
Fall Semester: Late September – Mid-December
Spring Semester: Early-January – Late-June
To view the current academic calendar, please visit the UEA web page.
*All dates are subject to change.  Do not book your flight until you have been accepted by the university and the academic dates have been confirmed. 


Accommodations and Meals
Students are normally housed in university residence halls in single or en-suite rooms with private or shared baths. There are no “American-only” residences.  Accommodations are located on or near campus. Your particular placement is made entirely at the discretion of the University of East Anglia.  All accommodations at UEA are self-catered, meaning that there will be kitchen space in which you can cook your own meals.

You should not count on being able to stay in your room during official university breaks. You will need to visit University of East Anglia Accommodation Office upon your arrival in order to reserve space during university breaks. You may be charged a fee per day for using rooms during the breaks. You may also be asked to change rooms during the breaks so that repairs can be done.

For more information on accommodations, please visit the UEA website.
