Claire is a Communications graduate who has travelled extensively and volunteered within Australasia and Africa. She worked within the University's International Office for more than two years before joining the International Summer Schools team four years ago.
Claire says "I am thrilled to be able to offer students the opportunity to study abroad and become a student here at UEA. I feel it is important for students to have an academic and social experience when they choose a summer study abroad programme, and feedback has shown that our programme has got the balance just right."

Miss Maren Albrigtsen

Maren came to UEA as an international student in 2013 from Norway. After completing her Master's degree in International Development, she took on an internship with the UEA Careers Service, before joining our team in 2015.

You get it all here - a world class university with excellent teaching, an international and vibrant campus, as well as the beautiful city of Norwich only a short bus ride away. As a former international student I understand that coming all the way to England can be a bit scary, but I promise you it is definitely worth it! People here are lovely, and we will help you with any questions or problems you may have."
