The University of East Anglia will no longer offer degree courses in London, as of September 2014.

The university announced today that UEA London, a joint venture of the UEA and INTO University Partnerships, will stop offering degree courses. This comes despite strong recruitment numbers and a high student satisfaction rate, and as part of a plan 'to concentrate on delivery of its world class research and exceptional student experience at the Norwich campus.' 

Most students of UEA London will have finished their courses by September 2014, but those remaining will be offered a transferral with their course to the Norwich campus, or help in continuing their studies in London.

The UEA is currently expanding its international profile, opening an office in Malaysia and working on a new Massive Open Online Course (MOOC), which will cater to international students preparing to study in the UK.

Vice-Chancellor Prof Edward Acton said: “I wish to thank all UEA London staff who have worked extremely hard and achieved exceptionally high student satisfaction ratings. We have carefully explored all options and taken the decision to focus on delivering our world class teaching and research – and the number one student experience in the country - at our superb Norwich campus.”
