Language and Communication Studies
In Language and Communication Studies, we offer distinctive flexible undergraduate degree programmes that have an emphasis on issues relating to contemporary language and translation, alongside language competence. Our graduates are highly employable and enter an extremely wide range of professions using their well- developed language and communication skills and intercultural sensitivity.
Philosophy at UEA has a long-established reputation for its warm and welcoming atmosphere and for the close interaction between teaching and research
Political, Social and International Studies
Our Political, Social and International Studies courses offer students a broad range of options and opportunities – from politics to international relations, media and popular culture to public policy and management, and beyond.
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 Politics, Philosophy, Language and Communication Studies.
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).
You’re about to start an incredible journey.
My colleagues and I in the School of Politics, Philosophy, Language and Communication Studies (PPL) will be with you all the way.
Welcome Week at UEA is all about settling in, making new friends and getting to know the university and the city. This week’s events will ease you into student life and give you a taste of what’s on offer at UEA.
In PPL we stand for three things:
Community: PPL isn’t only a workplace and a classroom. It’s a community. We share a common goal – understanding ourselves, the world and how to live in it.
Discovery: Our staff are both teachers and world-class researchers, pushing the boundaries in their fields. We want you to make discoveries too, growing your understanding and finding out what you really think.
Life: University isn’t just about work. It’s about life. And you are in a great place to live. Outside the classroom you can attend events with some of the world’s greatest thinkers, writers and artists. There’s also a world-class art gallery and gig venue on campus. Plus all kinds of opportunities in radio and film, music and dance, charity and politics, both here and abroad. Seize these opportunities and you will have experiences which shape your life and set you on paths you didn’t even know existed.
As you travel on your journey, do talk with us. We’ll help with any challenges you face, and we’ll celebrate your victories with you.
We can’t wait to get to know you.
