Interdisciplinary Institute for the Humanities

The Interdisciplinary Institute for the Humanities Foundation teaches Creative Enterprise and Gender Studies.

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 the Interdisciplinary Institute for the Humanities.

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!

    My name is Liz Powell - I am the Head of the Interdisciplinary Institute for the Humanities. Your degree is going to be an incredible experience, and I’m happy to be the first to welcome you to your new home.

    The Institute is focused on high-quality, innovative teaching - several of our academics have received teaching awards. We pride ourselves on offering a warm and friendly environment where you can feel at home and develop to your full potential.

    Norwich is a city rich in culture, with a fascinating political history to match. Here on campus, you will find many chances to join debates and work through complex issues with other interesting people.

    But first things first: this week is Welcome Week and we’ve got an exciting programme of events planned. Welcome Week is all about settling in, making friends and getting to know your School, the university and the city.

    Throughout your time here you will find everyone in the Institute ready to help. You can talk to me, or any of our staff about anything you need. We can’t wait to meet you and get started with your degree.

    Happy studying!


    Liz Powell

    Director of the Interdisciplinary Institute for the Humanities
