Want to go to university and wondering what to expect? Lots of questions will be going around in your head and the best way to get them answered is to speak with someone that has already gone through the process.

In our webinar, you’re going to hear from a current student who will share the secrets about moving away from home and the first few weeks at university. They’ll show you a typical day on their course and how to manage your academic and social life. You’ll hear the top tips on making new friends and what they wish they had known when they were in your position.

By the end of the webinar, you’ll have all those questions answered and be confident in knowing what to expect. Don’t miss the opportunity to secure your place sign up now.

UEA’s ‘Why choose university?’ Series


Our events are designed so that a group of students can take part from a classroom or students and teachers can take part as individuals, either from school or from home. This means that sessions will continue irrespective of possible school closures.

As a live, participative event, this session will not be recorded but slides and other resources will be shared after the event, where available.


Suitable for: All students considering applying to study at university. Advisers, teachers and parents/carers are also very welcome to join us.

Preparation/Pre-Reading: Students may wish to consider questions they have about the reasons for going to university and the student experience.

The IT Setup: The event will be run on Zoom and participants will be able to join using laptops, tablets, and mobile devices. If you are joining as a school group, we recommend connecting with one device and projecting on to a whiteboard. You will be able to interact with the university via typed comments and questions. Full details will be sent to those who have registered (see below) prior to the event.
