Biological Sciences

The School of Biological Sciences is a vibrant and friendly academic community firmly embedded in the internationally renowned Norwich Research Park. It boasts extensive state-of-the-art research facilities as well as modern teaching laboratories.

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 Biological Sciences.

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 to the School of Biological Sciences (BIO). You have made an excellent choice! In coming to BIO you are joining a school that is consistently ranked in the top tier both for its teaching and its research. The School will provide you with an exciting and supportive learning environment, one by which we hope that you will be challenged and enthused. You will be taught by experienced and knowledgeable biologists, who are committed to providing you with a truly outstanding education.

    I hope your time here will be successful and enjoyable and a platform for future achievement.

Steps to Success - Getting started in your School of Study

Step One

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.

Step Two

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.

Step Three

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

Step Four

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.
