The Norwich Medical School is a leader in preparing students to become highly competent and confident doctors. We are proud of our reputation as one of the very best schools of medicine in the country. We want you to be the best too -- by learning and developing first class clinical skills and nurturing excellence in scientific understanding.
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 Norwich Medical School.
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 from the Head of School
I am delighted to welcome you to Norwich Medical School as a postgraduate student. As you enrol on a postgraduate taught (PGT) programme at UEA, some of you may be continuing recent studies, whereas others may be returning to study after a period in employment. If you are returning to study, you may not immediately see yourself as a ‘student’ but as a working professional starting on a career development journey.
Norwich Medical School has several PGT programmes and our students come from a wide variety of backgrounds, and are often working in different health-related sectors. However, there are certain things that you are likely to have in common with your new colleagues. The majority of our PGT students are committed to a career in the NHS, which is what gives this uniquely diverse student body a common identity. We recognise that the majority of you will also be maintaining a demanding professional role at the same time, as well as family and other commitments.
Our ambition is to ensure that your time at UEA is, therefore, a real highlight of your lives! We will seek your input into your learning experience as we want to make sure that its quality, on every module, reflects the huge personal, professional and financial commitment that many of you have made.
I urge you to take up the opportunities to get involved with the wider student body and access all the support that will be available to you.
I wish you every success.
Professor Bill Fraser
Head of Norwich Medical School
