About NORWICH UNIVERSITY OF THE ARTS
Norwich University of the Arts is one of the UK’s leading specialist creative arts institutions with a well-established reputation for teaching excellence, innovation, and an entrepreneurial spirit. Teaching on our undergraduate and postgraduate courses across the arts, design, architecture, and media is recognised as gold in the Teaching Excellence Framework. We were named University of the Year for Student Retention by the Sunday Times 2020 Good University Guide
The university’s roots can be traced to 1845 — and our founders’ determination to connect education, creativity, and industry endures today. Our approach to entrepreneurship and employability is award-winning on the national stage, including the 2019 Guardian University Awards. We are pioneers of digital creativity and we are committed to delivering an outstanding student experience. We won one award, came second in another, and were third in the University of the Year category at the WhatUni Student Choice Awards 2020.
Our campus in the centre of Norwich is award-winning too and the focal point of a thriving new cultural quarter in the city. Behind our buildings' historic facades - from a mediaeval monastery to a listed Victorian Sunday school - you will find contemporary media labs, studios and workshops. Work is already under way on our next phase of growth; new teaching and learning facilities in a new building beside the River Wensum.
