It's a fairly good campus, right in the middle of the city which means you're never too far from anything. Student accommodation is less than 10 minutes away so you're never too far from home.

Loved my course (media studies), some teachers were amazing and really cared about the students. However, strikes were handled really badly by the uni. Nightlife is poor, campus is nice but societies are badly run and sports societies are clicky and full of drama. Overall, I feel that I could have gotten a much better 'university life' experience somewhere else, but don't regret it because of how good the course was.

BA (Hons) History
4.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
4.0 / 1 review

First year is good because everyone does the same modules so everyone gets the same start. From then on I like that you have free choice over what modules you can study. Contact time is average, but lecturers are helpful in that they offer office hours to see them outside of seminars. Forms of assessment that are summative are mostly essays, with some additional pieces.

BA (Hons) Educational Studies

The course in itself is providing me with the opportunity to head into my desired career. The course content so far I have not necessarily enjoyed due to my expectations of the course being more concentrated on how to teach rather than the background of teaching. The staff are all helpful and really know their subjects. However, due to coming straight from college to university, I have struggled to settle into the rhythm however my lecturers and my advisor have been helping me to overcome these barriers.

MPharm (Hons) Pharmacy

4.0 / 1 review

The pharmacy course at Uea is fantastic. The course starts off quite broad and sciences focused looking at the pharmaceutical, biological and chemical aspect of drugs and the body. From the second year the clinical focus starts to broaden. We start off learning about conditions such a diabetes, osteoporosis, thyroid problems in year two whilst still focusing on. Pharmaceuticals and medicinal chemistry. In the third year the modules become all clinically related meaning by the end of the year you feel like you've made huge strides as a future pharmacist.

I am currently studying Marketing and Management and this is my final year. While I am studying this course, I find this is an interesting subject that helps to develop myself. I like the various forms of assessment. Unlike the traditional assessment ; writing a boring essay, this module requires student having practical experience. For example, last year, one of my assessment was creating a advertisement , in which my group and I made a perfume advertisement .

Energy And People

This is the best module I have studied in my whole time at university. The module is taught my Dr Tom Hargreaves who is an enthusiastic and knowledgeable lecturer who's passion for the subject really comes across in his lectures and is infectious. The module focuses on how people interact with energy and energy systems and how we can alter people's energy use behaviours in order to combat climate change. The content of the module is fascinating and not only is useful on it's own but also interlinks nicely with other modules on the course.
