Health Sciences

The School of Health Sciences offers a superb learning environment that enables students to fulfil their potential and ensures our graduates are fit for practice in the modern and ever-changing health and social care sector

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 Health 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 UEA and the School of Health Sciences. 

    We are delighted you have decided to study with us for a professional qualification and look forward to working with you as you develop, both professionally and personally, as a result of your experiences here.  
     
    The School of Health Sciences offers a superb learning environment using innovative and stimulating teaching methods that will enable you to fulfil your potential and ensure you are confident to make a difference to the patient experience in the modern and ever-changing health and social care sector. 
     
    World-class research underpins all our courses, and our clinical practice sees us working in partnership with healthcare providers across the Eastern region and beyond to provide a variety of high-quality practice experiences, which are a crucial element of your learning. Our nationally and internationally recognised research active academic staff are experts in their fields and will inspire you to develop your interests and career. 
     
    Our teaching takes place in our award-winning buildings and you will benefit from regular opportunities to practise in our cutting-edge skills laboratories and immersive classroom. Our interprofessional learning programme gives you the opportunity to learn alongside other health related students at UEA.  
     
    I hope your time with us will be a happy and enjoyable one. For those studying a postgraduate programme, I hope that the programme you have decided to undertake supports your continued professional development, further improve your effectiveness in the workplace and underpin your capacity as an independent lifelong learner. 
     
    There are many activities across the University as a whole in which to participate and I would encourage you to engage as much as possible with the opportunities provided to play an active part in the wider University community. 
     
    I would like to take this opportunity to wish you every success in your studies and career aspirations. 

     

    Best wishes,

    Professor Sally Hardy

    Dean of the School of Health Sciences

HSC Student Zone – your student online blackboard site 

As a HSC Undergraduate student, HSC Student Zone has designed to give you the information and advice needed for you to make the most of your time here at university. It is filled with resources and information we hope you will find useful, interesting and thought provoking.

It should act as an online sign-posting tool that allows you to navigate easily and quickly to information on UEA, the School of Health Sciences (HSC) and your chosen course, all from one location.


The site is full of information to help you get to know HSC and UEA; support you with your studies and keep you informed about the range of opportunities and events on offer at the University.


We will be adding new content and resources to the site throughout the year, so make sure you come back regularly.


Once you receive an email confirming your place, follow the link in it to register online and set up your IT account, UEA username and password. You will need your UEA username and password to get access to the HSC Student Zone Blackboard site.
Once you have your UEA details, follow the instructions below to access HSC Student Zone:

  • Go to https://portal.uea.ac.uk/
  • Select Blackboard from the coloured 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 HSC Student Zone.


Please take some time to browse this site as it contains lots of information we think you'll find useful.

Arriving at UEA is an excellent time to like, follow, pin, love and more.
