I was always a little put off as I am not keen on Norwich itself (sorry, do not mean to offend - just some bad experiences there) but it sounds like one could easily not live in Norwich and do training at UEA?
how is one assigned an area exactly? Do you get any say on the matter?
Han wrote:As far as I know, it's usually one day a week at the Uni in Norwich, then 3 days a week in placement within your base. They allocate you an area (UEA covers a large area of East Anglia) to make travelling to placement easier, so you're based there for the 3 years. You do get to give a preference of where you'd like to be based, and they recommend you live there, although there are 4 week teaching blocks in October and again around Easter so for those weeks you will be in Norwich the whole week.

We know each other Gilly from good old Luton! I had a good feeling that you would make it on the course!
I'm based in Cambridge so not too far from either of you I think?
Getting excited about starting, if not a little daunted!

enid wrote:fabulous! thanks ruthie. so you can live say, in cambridge, and all your placements will be in that area? how do they allocate you to a placement area? i would be worried about applying, being successful, then they say I am based in Norwich!
