Research studentships at a world-leading institution

Whether you want to follow your passion, advance your career or change direction, set yourself apart with a prestigious research degree from UEA.

We’re one of the UK’s leading research institutions. UEA is a UK Top 25 university (Complete University Guide 2024) and is ranked in the UK Top 30 in the Times/Sunday Times and Guardian University 2024 guides.

Breaking boundaries

Our postgraduate researchers are at the heart of active research teams, challenging boundaries and making real advances. Collaboration is at the core of our research philosophy and you could find yourself working with colleagues from across our disciplines, as well as experts from the Norwich Research Park and beyond.

The Norwich Research Park provides UEA postgraduate students with access to a world-leading science base, bringing six major research institutions together on one site. It’s one of Europe’s leading research centres, conducting cutting-edge multidisciplinary research, with an annual research spend of over £130 million.

Campus & the City

The UEA campus is just on the outskirts of Norwich, the independent city with a big heart, where every year we welcome thousands of students to make themselves at home.

Norwich fuses fascinating history with a lively arts scene; the Waterfront, for instance - one of East Anglia’s premier live music venues - bursts to life every night from one of the oldest roads in the UK - 1,500-year-old King Street.

It’s also a great city for shopping, socialising and exercising, with two shopping malls, dozens of vibrant pubs and cosy cafes, and brilliant sports facilities, including the UEA Sportspark.

This is our showcase of the city that we’re lucky enough to call home. You’ll soon find out there’s nowhere quite like it.
