Social Work

The School of Social Work is an internationally renowned academic department dedicated to research and teaching. We have a strong interdisciplinary focus with a reputation for policy relevant empirical research. The teaching team within the School promote a friendly, scholarly and stimulating atmosphere and this is matched by students being both sociable and industrious so they make the most of their time with us.

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 Social Work.

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).
