About the University of East Anglia and Scholarship

Situated in the historic city of Norwich, England, the University of East Anglia (UEA) stands as a beacon of academic excellence and innovation. Established in 1963 on a sprawling 320-acre campus, the university has evolved into a dynamic institution with four faculties and twenty-six schools of study, making significant contributions to research and academia.

UEA is a prominent member of Norwich Research Park, known for hosting one of Europe’s largest concentrations of researchers in Arts and Humanities, Social Sciences, Medicine, and Health Sciences. The campus is home to over thirty businesses and four independent world-renowned research institutes, namely the John Innes Centre, Quadram Institute, Earlham Institute, and The Sainsbury Laboratory. With an impressive annual research spend of £130 million, UEA is a research-intensive institution, consistently ranking in the Top 20 nationwide for research quality.


The university’s commitment to fostering creativity is evident in its postgraduate Master of Arts in Creative Writing, founded in 1970 by Sir Malcolm Bradbury and Sir Angus Wilson. Widely regarded as the most prestigious and successful program of its kind in the United Kingdom, the course has produced numerous distinguished authors. Admission to the program is highly competitive, reflecting its esteemed reputation.

UEA’s impact on the global academic landscape is reflected in its rankings. The university consistently ranks in the Top 1% worldwide according to the Times Higher Education world rankings and within the Top 100 for research excellence in the Leiden Ranking. Notably, in 2012, UEA was named the tenth-best university globally under 50 years old, securing the third position within the UK. National league tables further underscore its standing, with recent rankings placing UEA eighteenth in the UK by The Times and Sunday Times, and fourteenth by The Complete University Guide.

In addition to its academic achievements, UEA has garnered acclaim for providing an exceptional student experience. In April 2013, the university was ranked first for student experience by the Times Higher Education Magazine, and it consistently ranks third for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey among mainstream English universities.

As part of its commitment to supporting accomplished students, UEA offers the Ariadne Nicolaeff Scholarship. Specifically designed for students accepted into the MA Literary Translation course, this scholarship is open to both Home and International Fees students. Valued at £26,000 for one year (or two years for part-time students), the Ariadne Nicolaeff Scholarship aims to alleviate financial burdens related to living expenses and course fees. Recipients of this scholarship engage in the invaluable task of translating an unpublished Russian dramatic literary work into English for their final dissertation/project, contributing to the rich tapestry of literary exploration at UEA.
