The city of Norwich is one of the most vibrant and attractive cities in the UK. It is perennially ranked in the top ten shopping cities in the UK, as well as being a destination for the arts, culture, music and tourism. Norwich’s rich tradition of architecture and commerce began as early as 1096 with the construction of the Norwich Cathedral. Since then, Norwich continues to flourish to a position of prominence in England. The city’s medieval roots are on display with cobblestone streets, thatched roofs, and even a Norman castle complete with city walls. UEA’s modern campus, coupled with Norwich’s medieval architecture make for a unique and amazing experience abroad.
The University of East Anglia (UEA) is an internationally renowned university that is home to approximately 20,000 students and is consistently in the top ten percent of the world for student satisfaction. Founded in the early 1960’s UEA is built on a scenic 270 acres of park and woodland in Norwich, and it is located right in the heart of Norwich.
COURSES AND CREDITS
A list of the courses ("modules") offered at UEA is available on their International Student page. Students applying to this program should plan to meet with the appropriate academic advisors to help determine course selection and to seek the necessary course approval(s).
All students will be registered by the Study Abroad Office as full-time students during their semester abroad, which is 12 hours for undergraduate students and 9 hours for graduate students. Undergraduate students must return with the equivalent of at least 12 hours of credit on their host university transcript (9 hours for graduate students). Students can take additional hours and are not limited to the minimum full-time requirement while abroad. All courses are graded on an ABCDF scale. There is no Pass/Fail.
Students have the option of living in one of UEA's numerous halls of residence. More information on your housing options can be found on their accommodations page.
Please note that UEA's halls are all self-catered meaning there is no meal plan available.
For the UEA exchange, students are responsible for paying:
Current, full-time, UM tuition (including non-resident fees, if applicable)
UM Study Abroad fee (includes the cost for international health insurance)
Housing costs (details and payment are usually handled between the student and the host university)
Travel expenses, books and supplies, personal living costs, passport and visa fees (all the responsibility of the student)
Students who withdraw or become ineligible after the application deadline will be responsible for a withdrawal fee. For more details, please refer to the Study Abroad Policies & Procedures page.
Students must be in good academic and disciplinary standing to study abroad and must have a cumulative 2.5 GPA. Additional or more stringent requirements may apply depending on the program.
In general, financial aid will apply to UM study abroad programs. All students should review the study abroad information on the Financial Aid Office website. It is the student’s responsibility to meet with a financial aid advisor to discuss how aid packages apply to study abroad. Third party scholarships may also be available for specific programs, so students should discuss study abroad early and often with the Study Abroad Office and the Financial Aid Office.
For current tuition costs, the Office of the Bursar provides a tuition estimator.
