Norwich and East Anglia

With all the facilities of a major commercial and thriving cultural centre, Norwich still manages to be a friendly and easy-going place to live, and despite its medieval architecture, the city has a vibrant and youthful outlook. Side by side with its strong cultural history, are facilities and events geared towards the student population, so that whatever you're into, you'll find Norwich has something for you.

Norwich is widely recognised as a very safe city. A recent survey found that the region of East Anglia has the least crime, best health and amongst the highest employment rates in the country. The international community at the University is widely recognised as contributing to the city and there are several established links such as the Norwich International Club, which enables students to meet local people in an informal setting.

The region around Norwich has much to offer with the Norfolk Broads, immediately east of the city, where a series of rivers and lakes span the region. With miles of open countryside and rivers to explore it is hardly a surprise that these provide a popular holiday destination for locals and tourists alike. The coast is just 20 minutes form Norwich and the miles of stunning sandy beaches and cliffs provide a spectacular background for another popular holiday spot in the summer.
