Whitman students may enroll directly at the University of East Anglia (UEA) in Norwich, England as visiting students through an agreement with Whitman College. The University has over 15,000 students and is located a few miles outside the small, picturesque city of Norwich and less than 2 hours by train to London. UEA possesses interdisciplinary schools, rather than traditional academic departments, with courses in fields such as English literature, creative writing, film studies, theater, music, museum studies, development studies, linguistics, psychosocial studies, biology, chemistry, math, art history, American studies, and environmental sciences. In addition to enrolling in classes alongside local students, students attending the University of East Anglia may join the many clubs offered at the university.

“I would definitely recommend this program to other Whitman students. I enjoyed the academic structure of this university as well as the social environment. The university is relatively new, and the students are very passionate about making it the best experience it can be. Norwich, England is also quite a nice city and definitely not as bustling as other schooling locations in England. Plus, the weather was amazing.” - Zoe L. '17
