Pakistani Student Ambassador
Hey! My name is Aimen Mobin and I’m a third year Business Management (NBS) student. I initially kicked off my journey at UEA with a year 1 Diploma in Business from INTO UEA which is located on the main campus especially catering to international students.
While applying to UEA, I thoroughly checked out its website and its facilities, ranking and campus are what drew me to the university the most. Right after arriving on campus I instantly became fond of this place. UEA literally has superb facilities- such as an amazing Sports Park with an Olympic sized pool, a huge library that’s accessible 24/7, a student union shop that has all the essentials that you may need and lots of different restaurants and cafes on campus! There is also traditional and Halal food available at the INTO campus and the student union shop on campus, which are quite pocket friendly (and taste pretty good too!).
UEA has so much to offer. There is a separate department and building for each subject and the teachers and staff on campus are very friendly and supportive. There are over 200 societies and clubs on campus such as the music society and salsa society as well as societies for every country and subject of interest. With so much going on you’ll never feel dull or too homesick. I personally love socialising at various society events but I also love taking a walk or sitting by the stunning lake on campus!
I stayed on campus in my first two years and I’m living off campus this year. Living on and off campus both have their perks (read my blog on UEA’s accommodation for more details).
But most importantly other than UEA itself, the city Norwich is one my favourite parts about studying here too. It’s a beautiful city with a historic aesthetic and modern twist to it. There are some really pretty attractions here to see such as the Castle, Cathedral and The Forum, as well as tons of cinemas, shops, clubs, eateries and more! My personal favourite area in Norwich is Riverside.
It’s a major plus point that Norwich is just 1 hour and 45 minutes away from London by train so I’m able to meet my friends studying there very easily (cheap train and bus tickets are always available).
I have become quite attached to both UEA and Norwich and I’m pretty sure even after I graduate from here I will definitely be visiting this place again! My experience in UEA has been amazing so far and I hope yours is too!

Hey! I am Abbas and I am a 2nd year Undergraduate studying Actuarial Sciences. My job as the International Student Ambassador is to assist the international students, particularly Pakistani students, throughout their time at UEA, starting from the Admission Process until arriving at UEA and during your entire academic career.
I arrived in UK after completing my A-levels from Karachi in 2011 to study Actuarial Science and there are multiple reasons why I chose UEA. Primarily because UEA has a strong, industry oriented Actuarial course on offer which is taught by practicing Actuaries from Aviva Insurance [based in Norwich]. However, another key reason for preferring UEA was the amount of support this University offers. I can assure you all that as you progress with your admission process, you shall realise that UEA actually invests time and effort to assist the overseas students in every possible way. You'll see invitations to attend seminars, to meet ambassadors or if you have any concern at any point during your application you can always get in contact with one of us and trust me, we won't rest before satisfying you! =).
This culture of support extends to every member of East Anglian Fraternity and I was surprised to see the amount of help you receive from your lecturers, peers, friends, etc. In essence, you'll get the taste of British Education in a progressively productive learning environment.
UEA is indeed a prestigious institution we are looked up to for our research based approach to education. We are ranked among top 1% of the universities over the world and 18th best in UK with many of our schools, such as Pharmacy, Nursing and Environmental Sciences, rated best within UK. UEA places a great deal of emphasis on student experience and this is evident from our performance in the WhatUni surveys where we have been ranked best for last 5 consecutive years.
If you consider Norwich, it has been voted as one of World's best small cities by Times Magazine. Norfolk has also been titled as the safest place in UK, and indeed from a Pakistani student's perspective this is tough to believe but trust me once you come here, you'd have no trouble in using your phone while in the town or near your house! =P
Furthermore, you might have already explored about the Islamic Centre on Campus therefore you can celebrate all the festivals and get a good meal every now and then with guaranteed ‘Samosas' during Ramadan for free at Islamic Centre, but you might be surprised to know that there is a closely knit Pakistani Community here in Norwich who are more than happy to help you whenever you need them. We are not huge in number but we are well connected so you can always expect to have a small gathering discussing Pakistan's politics in the square! ;-)
Anyhow there is a lot more for you to explore here so play around and find out or get in touch with me and I'll help you with any questions you have. So, I am looking forward to talk to you and soon see you here at UEA and when you come here don't forget to ask me about throwing a welcome party with spicy desi food!
Hey!! I am Aqib and I am a final year undergraduate studying Actuarial Sciences.
I am originally from Karachi where I completed my O levels and A Levels from Foundation Public School and Karachi Grammar School, respectively. Based on my love for Mathematics and Business, I chose to study Actuarial Sciences and The University of East Anglia felt like the perfect place where I could fulfil my dream. This is primarily due to UEA's strong association with Aviva Insurance, based in Norwich, who are involved in organizing the course and teaching some of the modules.
The University of East Anglia is consistently rising in the league tables and we are among the Top 15 UK universities in The Guardian, The Times and The Complete University Guides.
I have first-hand experience of this student satisfaction. When I came to Norwich for the first time, I was welcomed by the arrivals team and I really enjoyed all the events during Fresher's week. The lecturers were extremely helpful and I made a lot of friends as well. The campus is very beautiful, especially in the summer, with the broad and our very popular rabbits which roam the grounds. You can find everything on campus: library, laundrette, restaurants, cafes and a bank. To sum it up, it is like a small town and an excellent place to experience top quality British education on one of the finest campuses in the country.
We have a Multifaith Centre on campus as well as special prayer facilities. Friday and Eid prayers are held in a congregation and there are festivities as well during Ramadan and Eid. You will also meet a small, close-knit Pakistani community who are always there to help you and discuss the fascinating politics as well as cricket of our country.
Norwich is an interesting city culturally with a pleasant mix of historical architecture and modern buildings. There are many eating places in the centre as well as massive shopping complexes.
Accounting and Finance
Studying at a university is an experience which everyone should remember. It refines a person, and gives them the opportunity to explore themselves. Hi, my name is Inam, and on behalf of the University of East Anglia, welcome!
At UEA, there is something for everyone. For instance, I find my course to be the highlight of my stay. I study Accounting and Finance, and I chose this course not only because of the strong choice of modules it consisted of, but also because of the exemptions it provides from the professional bodies, such as ICAEW. Many modules are very relevant, with training provided in Microsoft Office packages, and an array of free choices to choose from during the later years.
The University also provides a lot of attraction points for students who would like to socialize with their friends and course mates. There are societies of various interests run by the Student Union, which can be joined by everyone on their choice. The Union also provides outlets for group activities, such the Union Bar, The Shop, and the LCR, which hosts various events on a weekly basis. Apart from that, the University provides a wide range of outlets for catering and social purposes.
UEA itself is one of the top universities in the UK and the world. Recently, Times Higher Education declared UEA the 1st for its Student Experience. There are many facilities for students who would like to benefit from them, such as a 24 hour library, a wide range of IT operated areas, various choices of student accommodation, which can be taken by international students for their entire period of stay. The University also supports students of various faith groups, with a Multiple Faith Centre and a mosque located on campus to supports its students.
Spread across 4 faculties and 28 departments, there is something for everyone to choose from. Free choice modules provide the added flavour to one's University learning, and various teaching methods such as lectures, seminars, labs and workshops enhance the learning experience.
Norwich itself is very quiet and calm. It is an inexpensive city, with many attractions, dining places and shopping malls. Norwich also hosts its fair share of historical sights for tourism. In addition, it has a direct transport connection with London for anyone who wants to have a day trip.
Choose UEA, and have an experience of a lifetime you would not regret! (Student Ambassador 2013/14)
