Info for Summer UEA England (Norwich) Applicants (HWS Students)

UEA is an approved affiliate of HWS which means you are eligible to receive credit and apply for CGE travel funding for this program. In order to apply for admission to this program please carefully follow the steps below:

Note that this is a dual application process: you will first be applying for approval to study abroad through the HWS online process. After receiving approval from the Center for Global Education, you will work to complete the remaining components of your HWS application while also completing UEA’s application process (mostly completed online). You will find that completing the HWS application will prepare you to complete UEA’s application.

 
UEA’s deadline for applying to this program is typically around March 31st*.
 
*Remember, you must be accepted/approved to study abroad through the CGE before initiating your application with UEA. You should open your online application with HWS well in advance of the above deadline by clicking on the ‘apply now’ tab at the top of this page. Your application will be reviewed and accepted on a rolling basis.

You must be accepted by HWS AND the affiliate provider in order to be considered for funding through the Center for Global Education. Funding is limited, so make sure to apply as soon as possible (ideally by the October 20th deadline for HWS short-term programs). Funding decisions will be announced by Thanksgiving Break for those who have completed their applications and been accepted and will continue until scholarship funds are depleted. 

UEA Application Instructions:
 
- You will fill out an application on line at UEA’s website http://www.uea.ac.uk/summerstudyabroad/apply  Note that you must have at least a 3.0 cumulative gpa to be eligible for this program.

- The program dates are June 27 – July 24 (tentative, based on 2019 calendar)

- You will take one course during the 4-week program. This will be worth 1 HWS credit. (Students seeking to earn major/minor credit or to address a Goal must get approval in advance from their academic advisor or Department Chair).  Grades earned through this program will count towards your gpa and will appear on your previous spring transcript.

- Choose one course and two back-ups, in case your first choice is not available. To see the courses (called “modules” in the UK) offered at UEA in the summer, go to this link: http://www.uea.ac.uk/summerstudyabroad   

- You will need to list the name of one faculty member on the application who may be asked by UEA to provide a reference. They do not need to provide a reference unless they are requested to by UEA but be sure to get the faculty member’s permission before you put their name on the form.

- Upload a copy of your transcript from Peoplesoft to your application.

- You will need to upload one passport-sized digital photo to your application.
 
 -Have the “study abroad approval” form filled out by Tom D'Agostino in the Center for Global Education. Your gpa and social conduct record will be checked. This form will be scanned and emailed directly to UEA by the CGE.

Program Fees:
 
- Fees for the summer program are listed in British pounds at this website: https://www.uea.ac.uk/study/international/international-summer-school/fees-and-discounts. If you apply by the early bird cutoff date (typically January 31) you are eligible for a 10% discount since HWS is a UEA partner school. The program fee includes tuition for the 4-week program, all academic excursions, and a social program with weekend and evening activities. Also included is transfer from the airport in London to Norwich and accommodation in a single room with private bathroom in a student residence. 

- International airfare and meals are not included. Students can prepare their own meals in shared kitchens or meals can be taken in campus cafeterias or local restaurants, so they should have money available for food.

Note about payment: Students should not pay anything (deposits, fees, etc.) to UEA directly. We have an arrangement where they will bill HWS and we will put the charge on your student account.

 
UEA Scholarships:
 
- The University of East Anglia offers a number of scholarships for students participating in summer programs. Interested students must have a current GPA of 3.0 or above and will be considered based upon academic merit along with a supporting statement and the full ISS Application Form. Students can only be awarded one scholarship and can only be considered for awards offered based upon country specified. Visit this page for more scholarship information.

- Interested students should complete the main ISS Application online, and complete and email the Scholarship Application Form to summerstudyabroad@uea.ac.uk, both before the March 31 deadline.
