South Korean Ambassador

Hi everyone, my name is Gina and I am the Korean student ambassador here at UEA! I finished my undergraduate degree in International Development and the Environment with Overseas Experience at UEA this summer and started my master's in Environmental Sciences! I am currently doing a pathway called Science, Society, and Sustainability within MSc Environmental Sciences, which specifically focuses on sustainability and sustainability governance. 3S is also the name of a research group at UEA dedicated to researching links between science, society, and sustainability as well as working on relevant policy developments.


UEA excels in interdisciplinary thinking and allows you to tailor your course according to your academic interest! Personally, I am currently taking one module from the School of Politics, Philosophy, Language and Communication Studies in policy-making, which greatly helps me in understanding policies in environmental contexts. As such, within your course profile, you will be able to explore your academic interests with a variety of optional modules to choose from. This is one of the reasons why I decided to stay at UEA for my postgraduate studies!


There are many societies and sports clubs for you to join at UEA as well to fill up your free time and to make friends from all over the world! I have been a part of Korean and Southeast Asian societies, two of the largest cultural societies on campus, and I got to make a lot of friends with various backgrounds, which made me a more open-minded person. UEA gives students many opportunities to grow as a person with a range of on-campus jobs and voluntary work available to students to gain experience or to simply earn money! I have definitely benefited from on-campus opportunities and developed many skills over the years at UEA, so if you are interested in gaining new experience and challenging yourself, UEA is a place for you!! Like the UEA motto, do something different and study at UEA!!

South Korea: Young - PhD Marketing

Hello everyone!

I'm glad to meet you on this University of East Anglia international students' website. I am Young who has been studying in B2B relationship marketing at Norwich Business School (NBS).

Until now, not many people in Korea may are familiar with the University of East Anglia. Neither was I. In fact, when people decide to study abroad, the main factors considered could be research network, relationships with researchers including supervisors (particularly, for postgraduate students), university's support for students, the safety and convenience of the city and the future career after graduating from the university. In the light of my experience at UEA and in Norwich, I think my decision to study in UEA was the best for me. Fortunately, I have got a NBS studentship for all PhD processes. I think each school including NBS tries to give chances for international students to study in UEA. If you plan study in the UK, why do not try to apply for UEA with UEA studentship? Additionally, Norwich is one of safest cities in the UK. Besides, there are new big shopping malls in Norwich city centre, so you can feel the convenience of shopping just like Korea.

UEA campus has many benefits. First, it is a campus-based university. It is very convenient because you can find a food store, coffee shop, post office, book store and more on campus. Second, the campus is like a park where you can feel the change of seasons and be communion with the nature. Third, the campus is next to a park area and lake so it offers a variety of facilities which can make your campus life better. For instance, the Sainsbury Centre which has held exhibitions; the Sports Park which is the biggest university indoor sports centre in Britain and has an Olympic-sized pool, climbing wall, athletics track, gym and an extensive range of sports and leisure activities.

I wish you all the best. Hope to see you at the University of East Anglia soon!!



이곳 University of East Anglia (UEA)국제학생회 홈페이지를 통해서 여러분을 만나게 되서 무척 반갑고 기쁩니다. 저는 UEA의 Norwich Business School (NBS)에서 기업관계 마케팅 (B2B Relationship Marketing)을 연구하고 있는 김영아 입니다.

아직까지 한국에서는 UEA 또는 Norwich 가 낯설게 느껴지시는 분들이 많을 것이라 생각됩니다.  저도 이곳에 오기 전까지는 그랬으니까요. 사실, 유학을 결정하면서 가장 많이 고려하게 되는 것들은 대학의 연구 분위기 및 연구 네트웤, 지도교수와의 관계 (특히 대학원 과정), 학생들에 대한 대학의 지원, 도시의 안전성 및 편리성, 대학 졸업 후 진로에 관한 부분들이 아닐까 생각됩니다. 저의 UEA에서의 경험에 비추어보면, 이런 면에 있어서 저에게는 최선의 선택이었다는 생각이 듭니다.  운좋게도 저는 Norwich Business School 학생장학금 (NBS studentship)을 받았습니다. 경영대학을 비롯해서 UEA의 모든 단과 대학들은 국제학생들을 위해서 장학금을 주는 기회를 많이 갖고 있습니다. 영국에서 공부할 계획이 있으시다면, UEA에 지원해서 장학금도 받고 공부할 수 있는기회에 도전해 보는게 어때요?

또 한가지 덧붙여서, Norwich는 영국 내에서 가장 안전한 도시 중의 하나입니다. Norwich의 현대적 쇼핑몰에서는 한국과 같은 구매의 편리함을 느낄 수 있습니다.

UEA는 계절의 변화와 생명의 소중함을 그대로 느낄 수 있는 공원 같은 대학교 입니다. 호수나 공원과 어울어져서 자연과 함께하는 캠퍼스내에는 다양한 편의시설도 갖추어져 있어서 캠퍼스 생활을 더욱 풍요롭게 만듭니다. Sainsbury Centre 에서 새로운 문화를 만나기도 하고, 영국 내에서 가장 큰 indoor sports centre라는 Sports Park에서 운동을 하면서 심신을 단련할 수도 있습니다. 

늘 건강하고 행복한 하루 보내세요!!!
