Computing Sciences

The School of Computing Sciences is one of the largest and most experienced computing schools in the UK, expertly blending excellent teaching, research, facilities and exciting course modules to offer a dynamic programme targeted at the job market.

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 Computing 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 Actuarial and Computing Sciences. For more than 40 years we have been recognised internationally for excellence in our Teaching, Research and Enterprise. We’re very aware of the needs of industry and this is reflected in the development and application-led focus of our courses and research. We are experts in areas such as Graphics Vision and Speech Analysis; Actuarial Sciences, Colour; Computational Biology; Data Science; Artificial Intelligence and growing focus on Cloud Computing/Virtualisation, Internet Technologies and Cyber Security.

    We consider how technology can help society and the economy. We continue to explore the impact of our advances in areas such as Agritech, Medicine, Energy, Environment, Health and Advanced Manufacturing. We're also probing the ethics behind the inventions of the future, and how to push for a more equal and diverse industry. We are part of the world-renowned Norwich Research Park and with the technology sector in the UK and beyond with global companies such as Apple, Aviva, BT and IBM. These links offer opportunities for student internships and placements. This is bolstered by our portfolio of international collaborations with leading institutions in Europe and countries such as USA, India, China and the Middle East.

    We pride ourselves in giving all our students the necessary mentoring, support and skills to enable them to gain rewarding and high quality jobs.

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.
