The School of Chemistry prides itself on research excellence across its spectrum of activities, from synthetic chemistry and drug discovery to spectroscopy and analytical and biophysical chemistry, as confirmed by successive Research Assessment Exercises.

The Schools of Study at UEA teach thousands of undergraduate and postgraduate students each year across the four faculties of our campus in Norwich.

We’re looking forward to welcoming you to Chemistry.

If you haven’t already, check out our School pages on the UEA website.

In the meantime, don’t forget to Register Online to get access to your timetable once it becomes available, and log in to Blackboard our virtual learning environment.

Once you have registered online you will also need to attend a registration event (unless you are an undergraduate home student living in UEA accommodation, since you are registered automatically when you pick up your room keys).

  1. Welcome to the School of Chemistry, we are really pleased that you have decided to study with us. The team and I look forward to working with you, making sure that you have all the support you need to be successful in your studies.

    Your first week at UEA will be a busy and exciting one. You will meet many new people and there will be a lot of information to take in. To get the most from your first few weeks here I urge you to:

    • Attend as many of the Welcome Week events as you can
    • Familiarise yourself with our IT systems: e:Vision, the SCI Student Zone on Blackboard and the UEA Portal are all critical to your time here
    • Take some time to familiarise yourself with both the University and the School’s commitment to equality and diversity
    • And, most importantly, speak to as many people as you can and ask questions!

    I do hope you will enjoy being a student here and that you will take full advantage of studying at one of the UK’s leading Schools of Chemistry.

    I wish you every success in your studies and look forward to meeting you in person soon.

    Professor Mark Searcey

    Head of School
