The City of Norwich and Region

UEA Norwich Site-161_Steve Wright Photography LimitedNot only a beautiful city, in 2012 Norwich became England’s first UNESCO City of Literature, a prestigious accreditation that recognised the thriving literary community that is very much a part of the fabric of our city. If you study English Literature at UEA, you will be taught by international experts covering all periods in literature, from the medieval to the present, as well as by prize-winning poets, novelists, biographers and literary translators.

Regularly voted one of the friendliest, happiest, and safest places to live in the UK, Norwich is a vibrant city with a lively and unique character. The bustle of Norwich is just minutes away from campus and offers plenty to inspire and entertain, no matter how diverse your taste or interests.

Norwich is overlooked by the towering cathedral and Normal Castle, its cobbled streets open out on to riverside walks, quiet gardens, museums and art galleries. Many ancient buildings now serve as cinemas, tea rooms and concert halls. Everywhere you will see medieval and modern buildings coexisting in one of England's most unspoiled cities.
