Choosing NUA was definitely the right choice for me. The campus is nice and the city is the perfect blend of homely and walkable together with lots to do and see.

Campus is good, with a range of facilities such as 3D workshops and print rooms. However, not many Students union activities and very limited spaces on the activities they occasionally put on.

NUA as a university is good for those who want to pursue a career in the arts, it’s got a good student support system, but would be better if the uni curriculum and how work is assessed and should be done is not so clear for those in first year

Such a lovely team. I have been residing at PFH since September 2020. Rooms are incredibly comfy and well soundproofed if you are keen on. I know it is annoying to get distracted while studying. Especially this year, as students mostly had online sessions. Internet is 10 out of 10. Many thanks to the PFH team for such a cosy atmosphere!

Great supportive tutors with a great understanding of the industry. I study games art and design and we have a discord server dedicated to helping each other out and spreading news, the server contains all years from 1 through to masters, it also contains alumni and people in the industry. Would definitely recommend NUA

The University is such a nice place to be, the tutors are all friendly and well versed in there professions. The facilities that are provided are on the whole ok its just there isn't enough of them, and the Wifi is slower then a slow thing. Due to the fact that it is a small campus in the city centre you are always close to shops and services, and it gives the university much more diversity in its interaction with the city.

I think NUA is great if you use the facilities and use what is given to you. The courses are quite independent so if you want someone to hold your hand it's probably not the best.

Covid left us all pretty dead in the water. A select few tutors were absolute life savers overall, and the students came together to make sure we had big social spaces online at the very least.

Being able to access the buildings and spaces is extremely helpful for getting different parts of projects completed. There were a lot of fun clubs going in my first year, however, because a lot of them are run by students, they don't always last, unless they are taken over. There are always a lot of events put on by the student union, which is a great way to get to try different disciplines and step out of your comfort zone.

NUA has great facilities all across campus, with just about anything needed to complete your work, including industry standard materials and software. One thing that I really love about this university is that it really prioritises the health and well-being of its students, and not just grades, offering a great support network with links to organisations that can provide specialist help.

NUA is a great University for anyone with heart for art. The campus is sprawled throughout Norwich but all within a short walk of each of the buildings, the facilities are great and can appeal to every artists needs. There is always someone who is willing to help whether that be your course tutor or the amazing student support team that can help you if your having issues.

NUA is a great and helpful university full of tutors that are not only engaging but also passionate about the subjects they teach. The social spaces are quite small however they always fun to be in with comfortable setting and study areas. I've participated primarily withing the LGBTQ+ Society and the Board Games Society, both of which have remained active throughout lockdowns providing support and entertainment which was extremely helpful.

All of NUA’s buildings are repurposed historic structures. The exteriors are the same as you’ll see through the rest of Norwich (beautiful brick with an artistic city centre flare) but the insides are all completely modern. Every building offers NUA’s free wifi, which always works very well. The Students Union is very active in the University. They run many activities throughout the year including all the events provided for Freshers Week. The societies within the SU are also a flourishing culture. There’s a club/society for everyone, and if there isn’t then the SU has a simple process to facilitate you starting your own.
