The School of Economics proudly combines a reputation for internationally renowned research and unparalleled academic support to its students. Always pursuing a research-inspired approach, we are committed to offering an outstanding academic experience that provides a platform to fully explore the influence of economic analysis. We achieve strong results in teaching and research league tables, consistently accomplishing a top ten result in both. Our focus is not only on stimulating and nurturing the intellect, but also developing individual employability from the outset. We offer more than just an educational experience: Economics at UEA is a gateway to possibility.
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 Economics.
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 Economics at UEA. I hope very much that you will enjoy your studies at the University of East Anglia and take every opportunity to further your knowledge and advance your future career.
We are an ambitious, research-oriented department, committed to excellence in teaching. Student support and satisfaction are extremely important to us and we are a lively, close-knit community with friendly, approachable academic staff. We are consistently ranked high in the NSS and in the 2016 National Student Survey we ranked first for academic support and second for overall student satisfaction.
Please take time to look at the New Student website as you will find important information about the University and School of Economics and your induction. Further information you will need for your studies will be provided when you arrive.
You will be assigned to an adviser who will be able to offer advice on academic and non-academic matters relating to your study at the university. You are encouraged to meet with them at the beginning of the Academic Year.
