Take courses in Literature, Drama, and Creative Writing at the University of East Anglia (UEA) in beautiful and historic Norwich, England.
Established in 1963, UEA is regularly ranked among the best universities in the United Kingdom, in terms of both overall quality and student satisfaction. UEA’s School of Literature, Drama, and Creative Writing has an international reputation for excellence in literary studies, with prize-winning scholars and teachers of literature and drama from all periods. Its world-famous Creative Writing program was founded by the novelists Malcolm Bradbury and Angus Wilson, and its graduates include Kazuo Ishiguro and Ian McEwan.

Today Norwich is a vibrant and dynamic city, full of stunning historical architecture (including a Norman Cathedral and a 12th Century Castle), as well as a lively open-air market and many restaurants, shops, theaters, and art galleries
