Central Asia Student Ambassador 

Are you an international student looking for answers? Well, look no further! I am Zarif, the ambassador for Central Asia and Caucasus, and I am here to help you figure out this confusing world of studying abroad.  

I have graduated from the University of Birmingham in International relations with Economics, and have a good experience in not only helping International students but also going through all of it myself! I am a postgrad, doing MSc in Economics - I have chosen UEA because of its huge legacy in Experimental & Behavioural Economics, as well as its global impact in research and development. 

UK is one of the best places to live and study in, and I cannot wait to show you that. Norwich, in particular, is truly a hidden gem that actually reminds me of beautiful old towns of Caucasus & Central Asia with narrow streets and so much art, architecture and history. Funnily enough, it is a very hip place too, you will not get bored with so much to do in the city centre such as having some tasty street food, going out on a Friday night on the riverside with your friends or visiting famous beaches all around the East Coast with some packed lunch.

Good thing about being an ambassador is that we always know the answer to your question - even if we do not know how to help you we definitely know who can. So please do not hesitate to get in touch, you can either send me a quick email on azerbaijanistudents@uea.ac.ukkazakhstudents@uea.ac.uk or you can contact me on Facebook.

Kazakhstan: Artyom - MSc Advanced Business Management

I am Artyom Golossenko, I studied a Masters in Advance Business Management at UEA. I chose UEA for studying a Master degree because I was looking for a course that would provide opportunities to investigate business and social research methods as well as understand the comprehensive nature of the business management.

The university campus is one of the things that encouraged me to stay and study at UEA. The campus provides various facilities such as stores, cafes and coffee shops that make it easier to live on the campus. In addition there is a significant number of studying areas across the campus, where students can focus on their studies in a quiet and comfortable environment. The academic approach at UEA has taught me to think critically, make analytical decisions and solve complicated problems. The study process has never been so enjoyable as everyone in the university is very supportive, friendly and ready to share their knowledge and experience with me.

In terms of social life it is really simple to find new friends, as there are almost 200 societies and clubs run by students and you will definitely find the one that suits your interests the most. At the same time students are very friendly, just don’t be shy. Apart from socialising, it is also good to keep yourself in a good physical shape, and for that reason you should join Sportspark, which is the biggest indoor sports centre in England, located on the university campus.

Norwich is one of the most attractive cities in the United Kingdom. It has beautiful historical architecture as well as great shopping, cultural, musical and nightlife areas. Whether you are interested in music festivals or art exhibitions, the city always has something to offer you. Norwich with the lowest crime rate in England is also known as one of the safest cities.

My experience at UEA has been incredibly rewarding and UEA is a great place to start or continue your academic path.
