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.
