INTO UEA is a joint venture partnership between the University of East Anglia and INTO University Partnerships.
It was established in 2006 to support the internationalisation goals of the University, namely to increase the number of high quality international students, to broaden its global presence and to invest in world class facilities. An integral part of the University, INTO UEA delivers programmes which prepare international students for long term success.
The partnership, located in a purpose built building in the heart of the UEA campus in Norwich, combines the academic reputation of one of the world’s leading universities with the reach and resources of the private sector. Today INTO University of East Anglia is proof of the power of carefully designed public-private partnerships to transform higher education.
Since inception, the University has grown international undergraduate student enrolments at three times the UK average. More than 5,000 international students have progressed to further
study at the University. The presence of these students generates an estimated £60million annually for the University and the wider community.
In 2009/10, the partnership launched the Newton A-level programme for gifted and talented students across the world, and in 2014 it launched the world’s first massive open online course (MOOC) for international students.
Ten highly successful years of operation and partnership have culminated in INTO UEA winning a Queen's Award for Enterprise (International Trade) - the United Kingdom's highest honour for any business.
