The Prince of Wales will be heading to Norwich next week as part of a visit to the University of East Anglia (UEA) where he will meet staff and students.

Prince Charles, patron of the UEA's School of Environmental Sciences, will be updated on its work when he visits on Tuesday.

The UEA pioneered the study of Environmental Sciences in the UK, bringing together scientists and social scientists from a wide range of subject areas to work together in one interdisciplinary School, founded in 1968.

A spokeswoman for the UEA, said: 'We are delighted to have the opportunity to update him in person about the world-class research being undertaken in the School.'

The university has a longstanding reputation for its world-class environmental research and is one of the longest established, largest and most fully developed Schools of Environmental Sciences in Europe.

The school integrates physical, chemical, biological, social and geotechnical sciences into the study of natural and human environments.
