postgraduate sports and events


Welcome to the postgraduate(su) sports and events page! Below are the listings for our soonest upcoming events, but if you want to look a little further ahead, check out the full calendar here.

This page lists events that specifically cater to postgraduates, mature undergraduates, and student with caring responsibilities at the UEA. Most events are free, though some may require you to pay a small deposit or sign up for a free ticket in order to secure a place.

Got event ideas? We'd love to hear from you - feel free to suggest them here!


Regular postgrad sports activities:

Postgraduate Yoga

Every Wednesday at 5.30 - 6:45pm. Simply turn up to Bookable Room 6 in Union House, and pay £1 when you get there. Mats are provided, but bring your own if you can. All levels welcome.

£1 Swim Tickets

You can pick up off-peak swim cards for only £1 at the SU reception, upstairs in Union House. UEA Sport also actively encourage groups of postgraduates to book out sports facilities and do their own sessions.


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.
