My name is Joanne Aruna Sursas and I am a Third year student in Society, Culture and Media. I chose UEA because I knew I wanted to major in Media and Communications and UEA was one of the top universities in that field. It also stood out to me that UEA was the top university for student satisfaction. I attended the open day and I was truly amazed by the student culture at UEA. There is always a friendly face greeting you with a smile and there were students of different nationalities as well. I was also especially attracted to the UEA Lake. The campus is small which makes moving around accessible and there are cafes around which makes a good hangout spot or to do some studying or reading.
My course offers a wide range of interesting modules and they are carefully planned onto my timetable, of course this depends on the course you are taking. My lecturers and advisers are friendly and approachable, they never fail to offer help and guidance when needed. They are also understanding when it comes to difficulties while facing a module. The library is open 24/7 which makes it an ideal space for studying. There are many individual and group study rooms in the library catered for me when I want privacy.
When it comes to play, UEA never disappoints. There is a wide range of societies and sports offered by UEA and most sports are held in UEA’s Sportspark which is currently the biggest indoor sports centre in Britain. Joining a sport or a society helps in getting to know many other students in UEA and everyone is friendly so there are no worries about making new friends. I would agree that some of the best people I have met in my life are ones that I have met in UEA. As the University is so diverse, you make friends from all over the world. On top of that, the LCR runs events on Tuesdays and Saturdays which are good for having a night out while on campus.
Travelling around Norwich and to UEA is of no hassle as transportation is efficient and most of the time a short walk or cycling is needed to get by between places. The town offers many shops and a market as well for all your shopping needs. In my experience, Norwich is a safe country which makes going out at night worry-free. This attracted me the most, because having come from a safe country I would want to live in somewhere safe as well. Furthermore, having to experience all four seasons in Norwich has been breath-taking. I particular chose UEA because Norwich despite being a city, is full of nature and greenery, a country that reminds me of home.
I can guarantee that you will have an amazing time at UEA as I have done so, with a lifetime of memories to hold onto and a great set of skills and qualifications by the time you graduate
