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.
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).
Welcome to the School of Chemistry, we are really pleased that you have decided to continue your career with us. We look forward to working with you and ensuring that you have all the support you need to be successful in your studies.
I do hope you will enjoy your time as a postgraduate student here and that you will take full advantage of studying at one of the UK’s leading Schools of Chemistry.
Your supervisor and supervisory team will guide you through all aspects of your induction and you will meet with them regularly. Our local support and the Learning and Teaching Service will be happy to answer any questions you have as you familiarise yourself with the School and UEA, and throughout your period of study.
I encourage you to take advantage of the diverse opportunities to broaden your skills and widen your academic and social network.

Steps to Success - Getting started in your School of Study
You will have received an email from UEA confirming your place. Follow the links to register online and set up your IT account, username and password.
Go to E:Vision to view your personalised timetable information. There will be UEA wide events for all students as well as our School events and activities.
Go to the SCI Student Zone.This is our area for all Science students to find common and School only information. It is an important reference area not only in your first few weeks but also during all your time here. Right now, your School areas on the SCI Student Zone will also have more information about any essential or recommended reading for your course (if needed before you arrive) or if you have optional module choices to make in your first year, there will be some more information about that. Most Schools have a ‘New Student Information’ area but do take time to browse the other tabs, including the general Science Student Information tab.
Follow these instructions once you have registered online:
- Go to https://portal.uea.ac.uk/
- Select BLACKBOARD from the 3 orange buttons towards the top of the screen
- Type in your UEA username and password, and select Sign In
- At the top right of the screen select SCI Student Zone
Double check you have done all of above! Keep regularly checking your timetable and School Student Zones up to and during arrival week as sometimes things are added or rooms can change.
