Meet Your Ambassador
My name is Anisha Naomi, and I’m a third year Law student. I first heard of UEA through my university back home under a transfer programme. Torn deciding between two universities, after much research and going through reviews (mostly by my parents), I was highly impressed by the statistics and satisfaction level, not to mention UEA’s ranking.
After making the choice of coming to UEA, I'm so glad to say it’s one of the best decisions I've made. At UEA I quickly realised how their main priority is student satisfaction and pushing the students to reach their best potential, at the same time giving them the best university experience. Another factor that was key to us was safety, Norwich being within the top 10 safest places to be a student. Law isn’t easy, then again what course is. However, the lecturers are so passionate and invested in making sure we do the best we can and that they help us get there. They were helpful with any questions and queries never making anyone feel small.

Hong Kong: Yu Hang Tau - BSc Actuarial SciencesWhat attracted you to study actuarial science at the UEA?
UEA offers great support to transit from high school to University, and from University to pursue a career. For a Hong Kong students looking to study in the UK, a lot of information would be the student reading from the internet. However, the Country Development Manager of UEA helped me a lot during my search to explore different courses, options and allowed me to have an in depth understanding of what I was signing up for. In facts, the Manager introduced me to the course Actuarial Science! Finding information about courses is tiring on the internet. I am certain that any student would benefit from talking with UEA's regional manager, and perhaps find a something new that they might miss on the internet! Aside from that, UEA has a strong linkage with Insurance Company Aviva that offers teaching from Actuary that is currently in business and offers possible career options. This is an unique edge that UEA offers and something other universities might not be able to provide.
What are the best bits about life at the UEA?
One big difference between UEA and other universities in big city like London is the environment. School accommodation, which is guaranteed for first year students if you apply before the deadline, sits right beside a huge grass field and a lake. As a Hong Kong student, who sometimes is sick of the dense and crowded nature of Hong Kong, I enjoy every bit of the spacious nature environment provided. UEA is located a bit away from the city, yet everything you could possibly need is available on campus - from gym, restaurant, union shop, to even pubs are offered right on campus. There is virtually no need to visit the city on a regular basis if you don't want to.
What are your first impressions of your degree course?
At UEA, Actuarial Science is taught between multiple schools. During my first year at UEA, I enjoyed learning a variety of topics from calculus, web page programming to even planning for finance in the future. The course always offers something new to learn and never feels repetitive or boring. There is a lot of mathematics involved in Actuarial Science, but seems to me it offers a much broader career path than a pure Mathematics course. Personally I would suggest students who are interested in mathematics to definitely check this course out.
Also, I would say UEA's education system is much better refined than Universities in Hong Kong. The course in general is much more regulated than Hong Kong universities in terms of academic expectation and grading. Workload is always manageable and graded fairly.
What is it like living in Norwich?
Living in Norwich is actually not so different than living in Hong Kong for me. Norwich is a smaller city than Hong Kong, but it provides everything Hong Kong has but with less people. From Karaoke to BBQ, Cinemas, Arcade centre and major clothing brands like Zara, Hollister etc.
Norwich might be a smaller city, but it have a rich culture that perhaps you won't find in other places. I found a shop collecting and selling mail stamps from different times and places, and also a shop selling specify Teddy Bears. Spend some time to explore Norwich and there is something unique for you to discover.
Hong Kong: Marissa - Business Management
My name is Marissa and I am currently in my third year of my Bachelor degree studying Business Management. There are three main reasons I chose to study in UEA: the reputation, the campus and Norwich itself! I have never regretted studying in UEA and it is definitely one of the best decisions I've made in my life!
UEA is a famous research-based university which means that we students have the benefit of getting up to date information of the current theories and practices. UEA is also reputable for their English Literature, Pharmacy, Environmental Science and Drama courses. One reason why I believe UEA has achieved high levels of student satisfaction is because our lecturers, advisors and mentors are always there to help us whenever we encounter problems during our studies.
UEA has such an amazing campus which is one thing I love most, we have our own lake which you can always do your morning jog or even organise a barbeque during the summer. Being a campus based university; it is just so convenient since all the facilities are just near the lecture theatres as well. Did you know our Sportspark (UEA's sport centre) has an Olympic size swimming pool!
UEA has over 150 sports clubs and societies that you can join and participate allowing you to meet people from all around the world. Concerts are also regularly held on campus, singers like Ed Sheeran and Coldplay came to play for us last year! Trust me, you will never get bored at UEA!
Norwich is a safe and beautiful city, though small, everything that you are trying to look for would be available. There are lots of small cafes and shops to explore and also two cathedrals and a castle to look out for.
Hong Kong: Max - BSc Accounting and Finance
Hi my name is Max, I have just completed my final year of my BSc Accounting & Finance course. My decision to choose UEA to undertake my undergraduate course was because of the fantastic location, the reputation of University courses and the diverse international culture. My three years in Norwich has been unforgettable, time flies when you're enjoying your time in UEA.
UEA, without saying is one of the most reputable institutions in United Kingdom, especially famous for their media, pharmacy and environmental studies. UEA offers a lot of student to teacher relations, where we are closely monitored by the University and I believe it is essential to be keeping in touch with the University.
Though UEA is one of the smaller campuses in UK, it only takes two hours to reach to London, 20 minutes away from the local city which contains one of the biggest shopping malls in UK. Our local football club which were promoted to the English Premier League. Students who never been to UK do not have to worry, we even have our own airport! Doesn't this make Norwich the perfect place to enjoy University life?
Many of our students are involved in many extra circular activities outside their studies to meet new people and relieve from their stress. UEA offers a wide range of societies with societies such as the Hong Kong Society which most of us gather in the beginning of the year to find our beloved citizens of Hong Kong, offering sports teams such as football, basketball and badminton. Every year we are invited to big sports events such as Nottingham Games, where we compete against other universities from UK.
