The School was founded in 2003 and has quickly risen to become one of the top pharmacy schools in the country, number one in the Guardian University Guide (2013). Our Pharmacy degree is highly acclaimed for its innovative content and teaching methods and was reaccredited by the General Pharmaceutical Council in 2012 with no conditions or recommendations.
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 Pharmacy.
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 Pharmacy, we are really pleased that you have decided to continue your education with us. The team look forward to working with you ensuring that you have all the support you need to be successful in your studies.
We understand that studying while working full time in a complex environment can be challenging. As experienced practitioners themselves our course team are able to offer practical advice and support to help you balance your work and studies as you develop into outstanding practitioners.
I do hope you will enjoy your time as a postgraduate student here and that you will take full advantage of studying at one of the UK’s leading Schools of Pharmacy.
I wish you a successful and rewarding time at the School of Pharmacy.

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.

This is important information and guidance about the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check which is a compulsory part of the MPharm degree. Some students will need to take action before they arrive at UEA as part of this process so please ensure you review this document.
