Since its foundation in 1963, the university’s commitment to achieving international standards of academic excellence has seen it placed in the world’s top 200 universities (Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2018), and achieve ‘Gold’ status in the UK Government’s Teaching Excellence Framework (2017-2020).

The UEA campus itself is home to a unique, multi-cultural community, contributing to a lively social and cultural scene.
