ueactive is a programme of fun activities for students and staff at UEA, to help develop a healthy lifestyle and promote a sporting habit for life. It is part of the UEA/HE University Sport Activation project, supported by Sport England, UEA and UEA SU. Sessions take place at the Sports Park. If you want to find out more, click here.

More information about postgraduate involvement in sports societies:

The Union has 62 sports clubs, and works to keep them accessible to postgraduate students. Sports clubs are not just a place for those wishing to compete competitively, they are also a way to relieve stress and get out of the lab or the library for a bit. This year at least 68% of our Clubs have training hours that are postgraduate friendly (after 5pm and on weekends) and the vast majority have at least two sessions a week that are accessible. To see all the clubs and societies we have on offer, click here.
