Health Sciences

The School of Health Sciences offers a superb learning environment that enables students to fulfil their potential and ensures our graduates are fit for practice in the modern and ever-changing health and social care sector

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 Health Sciences.

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 UEA and the School of Health Sciences.

    We are delighted you have decided to study with us for a professional qualification and look forward to working with you as you develop, both professionally and personally, as a result of your experiences during the programme.

    I hope your stay with us will be a happy and enjoyable one. I also hope that the programme you have decided to undertake encourages you to continue the process of lifelong learning. The School also offers a wide range of post-qualification modules and programmes that can help you to develop and progress in the years ahead.

    There are many activities across the University as a whole in which to participate and I would encourage you to engage as much as possible with the opportunities provided to play an active part in the wider University community. I wish you every success in your studies and look forward to meeting you soon.
