Hello and Namaste, I am Ranu, a fourth year Mres Intercalating student studying Medicine in UEA. I am originally from Nepal and I chose UEA because it is one of the top universities in UK for student satisfaction. Also, the course provided by UEA is everything I was looking for, the course here not only enables me to learn about medicine but also provide clinical skills from start of the course.
My academic life at UEA is very thorough as we are taught in problem based learning groups which is very helpful. The group is very friendly and represents students coming from diverse backgrounds. PBL not only encourages you to work with different people as a team but also invites you to do independent learning. The modules are laid out in a very organised manner. Also, the support system in UEA is very encouraging, as it comprises of personal advisors, Dean of Student Office, School Hub, there’s always someone you can go to if you ever need any help.
Apart from academics, life at UEA is really exciting. As I am fourth year, I live outside the campus but the campus is nearby if I wanted to use any resources. UEA itself has many facilities such as post office, Sportspark, cafes, multi-faith centre, shops, bank and a medical centre. It also has a lake nearby and the campus is very beautiful. We have various events such as Eid ball, Diwali ball, Holi, Dashara festival throughout the year as well. Outside the university, the city is very pleasant and offers various festivals and events. Norfolk is one of the beautiful counties in the UK and one can also visit a number of historical and beautiful places not far away from the campus.
As a whole, life in UEA is very exciting and fulfilling!

I would like to express my happiness to be part of University of East Anglia (UEA). UEA is the educational centre in Norwich City, which is far from crowded London. I would recommend joining UEA to all who like to live and study at peace. Beside this, UEA provides various courses, with quality education, amongst which I found the course of my interest - MSc Computational Biology (Bioinformatics).
Everything I found about UEA, before and after joining the course, at ease. When I was in Nepal, I was already very late to apply for the course. Thanks to the easy online application process. You can just fill up your details and attach the documents after which you can get quick response. UEA provides extensive information like international student handbook and accommodation guide in support of students to ensure us at ease. I myself came alone to UEA from Nepal and had no experience of problems in travelling.
In UEA everyone will find friendly people. There are many international students from over 180 countries which can make you feel the whole world is at UEA. There are also many international students' societies ready to give us warm welcome and be part of most of their events and enjoyment. There are postal services, banks, clubs, cafes, book shop, market, pub and many more at students' service. The huge library accommodates all the world knowledge for us. Above all, UEA is at a beautiful place far from noise.
British people are very sociable and it will be a fun to chat with them. One may find hard to be accustomed with native people talking English but you can get well with them soon. So hope to find you in UEA.
Namaste! My name is Shyam. I came to University of East Anglia in October 2009 to pursue Masters Degree in Biotechnology. I am glad that I made the right choice by coming to UEA.

The international student society (ISS) and Dean of Student's office organize many interesting events throughout the year, for example; movie nights, trips to London, Cambridge, Amsterdam and many other places of interest. The prices for the events are very reasonable. Recently, I went to London which was organised by Dean of Student's Office. It was great experience, I met with other students and we spent all day sight seeing in London.
UEA is located in Norwich city. It is a very beautiful modern city with an ancient flavour. There are lots of Churches, 2 Cathedrals, Medieval Castle, several Museums. Norwich is known for its famous shopping centres, pubs and clubs.
I very much enjoy my time at UEA.
