University of East Anglia

Staff, student and research success is at the heart of our vision here at UEA.

Almost 17,000 students are currently studying at the University which includes students from more than one hundred countries worldwide. The University employs approximately 3,800 staff, a third of whom work part-time. 

Since 1963 we’ve been breaking down boundaries between students and researchers, arts and science, business and social responsibility. Our world leading research is making real-world impact and covers science, health, medicine, social sciences and the humanities, addressing some of the biggest issues facing society today. We bring fresh thinking to the major challenges facing society, helping to create a better future for all. 

We are equally proud of our civic responsibility in our local and regional community tackling issues such as social mobility, building a more sustainable economy and championing diversity. UEA is a member of the National Civic Universities Network; reflecting the importance the university places on its long history of civic engagement across East Anglia, as well as our regional, national and global relationships to help achieve greater goals and positively influence the world around us. 

The University is an international and multicultural community which values and encourages diversity. We are proud of the increasing diversity of our campus and are committed to promoting a positive attitude towards accessibility, creating the conditions in which all staff and students can participate fully in the academic, social, and recreational life of the University.

We recognise that new technologies, new competitors, new challenges and new expectations are changing our world forever. We need to act bold, be innovative and transform the way we think to create the University of the future. To continue to be a world-leading institution, we need to adapt and change to the world around us. Our vision is to remain dual-intensive where we continue to nurture, and support established and emerging talent. With this in mind, we have been making plans to secure our future success and sustainability, and this means that we will be embarking on a period of major institutional change. 

We are working with our senior leaders to determine how we are going to achieve our long-term financial stability, a more streamlined educational offer, stronger student experience, enhanced global research reputation, and a more effective and efficient organisational structure. As this progresses, we will continue to recruit critical roles across the University to achieve our vision and we hope you will join us to help shape our future.
