Norwich University of the Arts (NUA) is one of the great British art schools, with an unbroken history of specialist education in arts, design and media that goes back almost 170 years.
In the Complete University Guide 2014, NUA is rated the top specialist art and design institution in the UK.
As a creative community of 2000 students and staff, NUA is big enough to be a dynamic influence on the creative industries but small enough to be able to continue to offer each student the individual support and guidance they need to develop their creativity to a high professional standard.
The strong focus on creative excellence and professional development running through all undergraduate and postgraduate courses results is exceptionally high employability for graduates. Media courses are accredited by Creative Skillset, the UK industry body which supports skills and training for people and businesses to ensure the UK creative industries maintain their world class position.
