Highlights: 

"Norwich is a fine city. None finer. If there is another city in the United Kingdom with a school of painters named after it, a matchless modern art gallery, a university with a reputation for literary excellence which can boast Booker Prize-winning alumni, one of the grandest Romanesque cathedrals in the world, and an extraordinary new state-of-the-art public library then I have yet to hear of it." -Stephen Fry, actor and writer

  • Norwich, one of the most historic and picturesque cathedral cities in England, lies at the heart of rural East Anglia
  • The city has been recently voted on of Britain's top cities for quality of life and prosperity. New developments are being started every month, from the University's own regional sports center to the redevelopment of the riverside area with shopping malls and multiplex cinemas
  • For the third consecutive year, students at the University of East Anglia have placed UEA in the top five mainstream English universities for overall student satisfaction and for satisfaction with the teaching they receive
Program Summary: 

The KU Great Britain Direct Exchange Program (GBDX) is designed to stimulate and enrich the intellectual development of KU students through a direct experience in the British academic and cultural environment, promoting friendship with Great Britain and broadening international horizons. To realize this mission, KU has signed direct exchange agreements with ten universities in Great Britain, which allow KU students to study for a semester or year abroad at greatly reduced costs. In exchange, British students from these same universities will study for a semester or year at KU.

All universities offer year-long exchanges. Classes begin in late September or early October and finish in very late May or June. All universities offer generous vacation and travel times.

The university admitted its first students in 1963 and now enrolls 13,000 students. The main campus is located three miles to the west of Norwich, in an area of outstanding beauty located on the slopes of the Yare Valley. UEA is particularly well known for its courses in Creative Writing and Literature, its School of Environmental Sciences, and for the spectacular Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts.

Location: 

Norwich, one of the most historic and picturesque cathedral cities in England, lies at the heart of rural East Anglia. It was the second most important city in medieval England, and its rich heritage can still be found within the old city walls, from the stunning medieval architecture of the old centre to the well-preserved Norman castle. The city has been recently voted on of Britain's top cities for quality of life and prosperity. New developments are being started every month, from the University's own regional sports centre to the redevelopment of the riverside area with shopping malls and multiplex cinemas.

The region around Norwich has much to offer. Just outside of Norwich are the Norfolk Broads, with its series of rivers and lakes, and the Norfolk coastline, with wildlife sanctuaries and miles of stunning sandy beaches.

Academic Information: 

Students may earn up to 30 hours of KU credit for the year. Most disciplines are offered in the Humanities, Social Sciences, Natural Sciences, Engineering, Business, Education and Health Fields. Students are encouraged to visit each university's website to determine which university offers the best selection of courses to meet graduation requirements. Course catalogs are located in the OSA Resource Library.

Courses and grades will be posted as KU equivalents on your KU transcript and grades will figure into your KU GPA. The relevant KU academic department will make the final decision regarding posting of credit and grades, and their application toward graduation.

Housing: 

Students live in university residence halls or student apartments on or near campus. In most cases students will have a single room and will share a common kitchen and bath. Students will have meals provided, prepare their own meals, or purchase meals at reduced cost in the university cafeteria, depending on their choice of residence.

Eligibility: 

Open to KU students who have achieved junior status by the beginning of the program and who have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.8. Exceptions may be made for sophomores with high academic qualifications who meet the course prerequisites. Some of the British sites may have additional requirements, including pre-requisites and number of credit hours completed.
