As I live quite far from the university and it is in the countryside, coming from a big city myself I was surprised at the high cost of travel and slightly higher cost of living in the south×

It's not the place to go if you're looking for vibrant and diverse nightlife. While you can build up a great social scene within your circles of friends, Norwich can't offer you a wide range of places to go out. There are some lovely bars and a couple of good clubs, but in general it's quite a quiet city. It's all about the people you meet. Some of the course buildings could be improved upon.×
Not much sports media labs get packed at end of terms library okReport

There is a lot of teaching time which is great as the creative nature of the course does benefit from tutors comments and help constantly. There are no exams as such on my course as it is 100% coursework which is great as I feel with an art subject you can show more of your work and creativity through coursework. The facilities are fantastic but it would be beneficial to have a sports hall on campus as most universities have this and the closest one is at the other university in Norfolk which is too far away from where I live.×

One of the best things about NUCA is that the university is based in the very centre of Norwich. Everything you might want is around - many cafes, bars, bookshops, the city library, as well as many green spaces, some exactly next to the uni. The studios themselves hold a very friendly vibe, so you can hang out and relax there if you'd rather stay inside. There are many free spaces (spacious lobbies, student union bar) to hang around, but since we are an arts uni, we can always have a nice cosy spot in our course studio to work and hang out.×

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
