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 Norwich Business School.
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).
Welcome to the Norwich Business School at UEA. My colleagues and I will do our very best to ensure that you have a stimulating and rewarding time here. It is our intention that you will leave us not only with the skills necessary to succeed in your future career, but with the capacity to look beyond this to far broader intellectual horizons.
Please take a moment to look at details of your first week here at Norwich Business School. We have carefully planned the week to provide you with essential information that will enable you to settle in as quickly and painlessly as possible, and to assist you in getting the most out of your study with us. It is therefore imperative that you attend ALL events where it is specified on your timetable. As well as academic events, we have also organised social gatherings, to give you an opportunity to mingle with your fellow students and lecturers – so please do read your timetable carefully.
We will also continue to update this website with useful information prior to your arrival, so please check back regularly for updates. In the meantime you can also join our active and friendly social network communities:
I’m sure you will enjoy yourself here. We are a friendly, hard-working School. I look forward to welcoming you to the School when you register in September. In the meantime, enjoy the remainder of your summer.

Congratulations for successfully obtaining a place at the University of East Anglia (UEA).
Some of you may find university a dramatic change from your previous educational institutions. So, Norwich Business School (NBS) has developed and added a Student Performance Accelerator (SPA) workbook to the NBS Student Handbook to help guide you through your University education with the intention that you will be able to leave the University with the grades and qualifications you deserve, and above all, the skills and capabilities that you will need to progress to further study and/or the world of work.
You are likely to find that university is very different from any of your previous educational experiences because, in undertaking a degree, you are expected to actively research and learn rather than just being passively taught the information you require to complete the course. The most important aspect of higher education for you is ensuring that you go beyond lecture and seminar notes, and actively read a wide range of sources based around individual topics so that you know each topic in detail and acquire a deeper understanding.
The main purpose of this workbook, and the accompanying programme of lectures and workshops, is to prevent you from suffering an information overload in your first few weeks at university, and deliver the information you need at the time you need it (when it is relevant to the work you have been asked to do).
Provided that you attend all of your lectures and seminars, undertake independent reading, and follow the instructions provided in the Student Performance Accelerator and by your lecturers and seminar leaders, you should be confident that you will have acquired and developed important skills and capabilities, be able to look forward to obtaining a good honours degree, an exciting first job, and a satisfying career.
