This four-week summer program at the University of East Anglia offers challenging introductory courses in a variety of subjects.

In past summers, these courses have included Branding, Advertising and Digital Marketing; Creative Writing; Digital Animation: Creating a 3-D Computer Generated Movie; and Global Media and Communications Law.

Classes meet around 15 hours per week. Most courses include field trips to thematically-relevant sites.

The UEA campus is a mini city. Almost every student need is met on campus, with a large food shop which includes a post office, bank, launderette, pharmacy, and Waterstone’s bookshop. There are plenty of places to eat and drink. The student union runs eateries, cafes, and shops. UEA boasts a range of entertainment and performance venues and is host to a variety of events throughout the year, including theater productions, comedy, literary events, and live music. The university is also home to the largest indoor university sports center in England, including an indoor climbing wall, two 25-meter swimming pools, soccer park, track, and two indoor arenas.  

UEA is located just outside Norwich, England, 115 miles northeast of London. The historic city of Norwich has a population of 150,000, giving it a cosmopolitan atmosphere that offers numerous attractions to students, as well as the opportunity to participate in the social and cultural life of a provincial English city. At the heart of the dynamic East Anglia region, the city is a thriving commercial center with a bustling open-air market surrounded by department stores, specialty shops, restaurants, and some 300 pubs. There is also a rich variety of entertainment to choose from, including numerous lively restaurants, nightclubs, theaters, and musical venues. Norwich has a peaceful side too: quiet gardens, cobbled pedestrian streets, five museums and an art gallery. Everywhere, you see evidence of the old and new coexisting together: the architectural modernity of the University is complemented by the medieval elegance of the city. Old buildings are rarely conserved as museum pieces - a 13th century crypt is used as a coffee bar serving a 15th century friary which is used as a concert hall.
