Meet Your Ambassadors
Hi! I’m Roshni Bahri, and am currently studying my fourth year of medicine at UEA. Having spent the last four years at UEA, I am happy to call Norwich my new home! Ever since I came to the campus for my interview, I felt the calming and friendly vibe of the university- and this is what attracted me to UEA. The beautiful amalgamation between concrete and greenery on campus is the best example of the balance you can find here- a balance between work and play, and between old roots and new beginnings.
One of the most striking things I found about the university was how welcoming and warm it felt (despite the cold English weather!). All my questions about moving to a new country were answered, either by UEA staff, students, or online blogs. It didn’t take me long to get used to living on campus, or off campus in Norwich, because of the general feeling of safety and familiarity that the city gives off, even to someone who has moved here from literally across the world! Everything you need is accessible on campus- whether it is a warm hot chocolate on a cold night, a BBQ by the lake on a summer day, or your weekly fix of groceries.
One of my favourite things to do unwind during exam time is to pop by the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts and immerse myself in art and sculptures from all over the world. Diwali has always been my favourite time of the year since I was a child, and it thrills me that celebrating Diwali has not been something I haven’t been able to do since moving to England. Whether it’s a big Diwali Ball, diya lighting in the square, or a meal from the various Indian restaurants in Town – I feel that a touch home is always here. UEA has something to offer everyone, and I can assure you that you will experience a host of new and exciting things here! I can’t wait to meet all of you.
Hello! I am Indira Nuthakki and I am one of the International Student Ambassadors for India. I am currently studying my third Master’s in the UK. I know first-hand how daunting the task of applying and moving to a foreign country can be and I am right here to help you navigate this journey; answering any queries that you may have about the education system, accommodation and application process.
I chose UEA because for me, UEA represented a university that cares about its students, this was very evident to me from the very first meeting that I had with the UEA Student Representatives- Akhil Bagga and Pete Ryan. They chatted with me for more than an hour about the Creative Writing Program and the entire application process; making sure to answer any queries that I had following the meeting as well. In my experience, this was the first university to take on such a hands-on and individual approach. I immediately had the feeling that I was not just another student here. Apart from that, UEA was the first university to establish a Creative Writing Program in the UK spawning stalwarts like Ian McEwan and the Nobel laureate Kazuo Ishiguro. The modules offered in the MA in Creative Non-Fiction and Biography really appealed to me and I was very excited at the prospect of having access to writers like Margaret Atwood, Amit Chaudhari and George Szirtes who have served as Course Directors in the past and are frequent visitors at the various literary festivals that take place at the University.
The campus is located near a lake and is surrounded by a vast expanse of soothing greenery. For someone from Mumbai this was like a fresh breath of air and I was immediately inspired to move here. I felt very welcomed during my first week by a sea of friendly faces, everyone from the lecturers, students to members of the administrative staff were very warm and any homesickness that I felt during the initial weeks quickly dissipated.
UEA offers over 200 clubs and societies. Whether you are a tea aficionado or an ardent Harry Potter fan, there is something for everyone and if you can’t find one; you can just create your own society. There is also a society for garlic bread lovers! and this precisely what makes UEA so special for me; students are encouraged to celebrate their individuality and uniqueness.
Apart from being England’s first UNESCO City of Literature; Norwich is a vibrant city with a rich history. The city is packed with cosy cafes and wonderful restaurants that cater to a variety of palates offering a diverse range of vegetarian and vegan fare. Being a vegetarian, I found plenty of restaurants that have now become favourites. To me, Norwich is more than a city; it is an experience that needs to be discovered and I am relishing every moment of my time here. Needless to say, I am very happy that I chose to come here and would happily recommend the university to anyone considering studying in the UK.

India: Anjali - Masters Environmental Sciences
Hi! I’m Anjali, a Master’s student studying Environmental Sciences at UEA. I chose UEA because it was the only university I found offering someone like me – with a non-science undergraduate background but with an interest in working in a science based field in the future – a place on an MSc like the one I’m currently doing. One of the things that’s great about the Environmental Science course is the variety of choice in the modules: some are quite technically scientific (isotope chemistry, ocean and atmospheric systems) but some aren’t (sustainable consumption, environmental impact assessment).
Life at UEA is pretty great. I live on campus with friendly flatmates, and I’m close to the library (which has spectacular sunset views from some of the study areas), laundry, and other facilities. My course mates are fun people who are great to both socialize with (the postgraduate bar is a fantastic place with a great quiz night!) and work with.
I’m also involved with clubs ranging from conservation and wildlife (which organizes documentary nights and visits to local sites of interest) to show choir to floorball (similar to hockey, and new at UEA this year!).
Off-campus, Norwich – which is about half an hour’s bus ride away from UEA – is a lovely city that I’m enjoying discovering as I wander through it when I can. It’s got lots of places of historical interest, plenty of shopping options, nice green spaces, and is very friendly to walkers and cyclists.
India: Trishala - LLM Intellectual Property and Information Technology
My first week of the UEA was very exciting. Everyone in the University were very welcoming and made me feel at home. I met the lecturers of the UEA law department and faculty members helped me in selecting my modules. The classes are usually comprised of not more than 15 people and take place in Earlham Hall which has a beautiful architecture of the 16th century.
There are around 200 societies at UEA and I chose to join the TEDx Society. I’m in the committee of the society which has helped me in developing my soft skills and I have also made friends from the different parts of the world.
Norwich is a calm and aesthetically beautiful city. There is always something interesting happening in the city like the vintage sales, also Norwich Market is one of the attractions of the city which reminds me of India. There are restaurants which offer different cuisines from around the world and the spices to cook with are easily available in the Indian and the Asian stores.
There is sufficiently big community for the Indians at the UEA and also an Indian Society which organizes events such as the Diwali Ball, Bollywood night and other fun events and activities.
India: Saket - MSc Enterprise and Business Creation
I got to know about UEA by looking at university rankings and finding that UEA is among the UK top 15. From this I started contacting UEA students over Instagram and Facebook and I was happy to receive positive reviews.
I was nervous prior to starting my studies, but university staff helped me find accommodation and I found that there was support on campus such as free language classes and there was a lot of events happening for students to become familiar with the university.
At first I was a bit introvert but students here were welcoming and it has been a great atmosphere outside of studies. UEA provides a great environment for students to engage with each other and there are ample clubs and societies to join. We also have an Indian society which organises frequent events for Indian students to make them feel at home.
Norwich is a really peaceful city and the people are helpful and understanding. There are plenty of places and history to explore and the cost of living is less than other cities in the UK.
India: Aarpita - MSc Knowledge Discovery & Data Mining
I still remember everything from the moment I came to UEA. The moment I entered my accommodation it gave me such a warm feeling that I never wanted to leave. It was my first time away from home but UEA gave me all the comfort that I needed.
The campus is not only vast but pleasing as well. My favourite spot is definitely the lake, it gives me so much pleasure to be there. Along with this I love spending time at the multi-faith centre.
Norwich is a city brimming with art and culture, steeped with history and heritage, peppered with pubs and restaurants and booming with independent businesses and creative opportunities. I love the fact that it has so much greenery.
Most of my professors have real world experience outside of academia and it shows. Generally, I have classes three days a week, inclusive of lab sessions since my course is very much practical. Each student in the university is assigned an advisor who is also a faculty member. Your advisor is not only for academic concerns but also any difficulties you might face during your time here.
Apart from this, I have found opportunities for personal growth and development not only academically, but also to expand beyond classroom knowledge.
India: Rajib - MA Rural Development
I chose to study at UEA in order to broaden my knowledge in the development sector and was completely thrilled with the School of Development.
I admired the work that many of the faculty members and researchers conducted and studying with the department helped me gain exposure in the field of rural development whilst also inspiring me to change my career plans.
Since graduating I have been a researcher at the United Nations Development Program in India and, more recently, I have been inspired to pursue a PhD which has allowed me to further study my overseas study experience. This PhD has allowed me to work in Africa on a really ambitious project.
UEA changed my career course as I was able to see my dream for the first time. It was here that I learnt to challenge myself, be open to new possibilities and think outside the box!
India:Sarita - MA Gender Analysis
I decided to study at UEA as I wanted to become a management consultant for a reputed organisation, to help business clients improve and realise their full potential. I previously had five years of experience in supply chain management but lacked the leadership, research and analytical skills.
Studying at UEA gave me the confidence and the skills that I needed and I now work as a Management consultant for EY LLP, a global leader in advisory services. Here I get to work with clients from multiple countries and sectors, thus gaining a wide knowledge of how international business operate.
Though I have considerable achievements in my professional life, none gives me more pleasure than the time I spent in the UK at Norwich Business School where I was able to make wonderful friends with whom I am still in touch.
