I think what makes UEA so special is the fact that it offers something suited for everyone, and really allows you, as a student, to tailor your own experience. With over 200 clubs and societies open to everyone, there is never a lack of things going on around campus. My favorite thing to do is to sit in the square (the heart of the campus) and just observe, with the occasional flash-mob by a society or a club. Flat-mates become family before you know it, and day-to-day life without them wouldn’t be the same. Feeling at home, away from home has never been easier, you will always find people who are just like you.

Having such a large campus comes with many benefits, one of them being convenient meeting places everywhere you go. Want to grab a quick bite and a drink with some friends? Head over to the bar with delicious quick food and a variety of drinks on offer. Enjoy a coffee break during long study hours at the 24/7 university library? Head into the student union and grab a coffee or tea from Unio. The opportunities are endless. Convenience is such a big factor as to why I was drawn to UEA, there’s a career center on campus that can help you with almost anything, a Barclays for all your banking needs, and a grocery store for all the snacks you need to keep you going. UEA is also home to the LCR which hosts some incredible student nights out, but also quite a few gig nights throughout the year. How cool is that?



It doesn’t stop there, UEA is located close to the heart of historical Norwich. Take a quick bus-ride into town and you’ll have all the shops, cafés, restaurants, pubs and clubs your heart desires. More into greenery? Well look no further than just beyond UEA’s famous ziggurats. The breathtaking greenery surrounding the lake will make those crisp morning walks a breeze. In my first year I would find myself going for a jog around the lake or a long walk after a long day of lectures was just what I needed.

If you have any questions about my experience, or the university, then please don’t hesitate to send me a message either through the ‘Norwegian Students: University of East Anglia’ page on Facebook or email:


Jeg tror det som gjør UEA så spesiell, er det at det gir noe som passer for alle, og lar deg som student, skreddersy din egen opplevelse. Med over 200 klubber og samfunn åpne for alle, er det aldri mangel på ting som skjer rundt campus. Min favoritt ting å gjøre er å sitte på torget («The Square,» hjertet av campus) og bare observere. Samboere blir familie før du vet det, og det daglige livet uten dem ville ikke være det samme. Å føle seg hjemme, hjemmefra har aldri vært enklere, du vil alltid finne folk som er akkurat som deg.

Å ha en så stor campus kommer med mange fordeler, en av dem er praktiske møtesteder overalt. Vil du ta en rask matbit og en drink med noen venner? Gå over til baren med deilig hurtigmat og et utvalg av drinker på tilbud. Nyt en kaffepause i lange studie timer på 24/7-universitetets bibliotek? Gå inn i studentforeningen og ta en kaffe eller te fra Unio. Mulighetene er uendelige. Lettvinthet er en så stor faktor for hvorfor jeg ble trukket til UEA, det er et karriere-sentrum på campus som kan hjelpe deg med nesten alt, en Barclays for alle dine bankbehov, og en matbutikk for alle snacks du trenger for å holde deg går. UEA er også hjemmet til LCR som er vert for noen fantastiske studentkvelder ute, men også gig netter hele året. Hvor kult er det?

Det stopper ikke der, UEA ligger nær hjertet av historiske Norwich. Ta en rask busstur inn til byen, og du vil ha alle butikker, kafeer, restauranter, puber og klubber ditt hjerte ønsker. Mere tiltrukket til grønne omgivelser? Ikke se lenger enn UEAs berømte ziggurater. Den fantastiske grensen rundt innsjøen vil gjøre de skarpe morgenene en bris.

Norway: Ida - Translation, Media and Japanese

My name is Ida, and I’m currently in my second year studying Translation, Media and Japanese. I chose to study at UEA because of its wide range of courses and modules, its idyllic location in Norwich, and its excellent reputation, both for teaching quality and student life. My course allows me to combine three subjects I’m very passionate about, and to tailor my own studies to suit my interests by choosing from a wide range of elective modules. Students are taught in small groups, giving them the chance to be active learners and to interact with their lecturers, and the teaching environment is very friendly and relaxed. Thanks to the university’s more than 160 exchange partners worldwide, students also have great opportunities for studying abroad – I will be spending the next academic year in Japan, and I’m very excited!

The UEA campus is a beautiful environment, with lots of green parkland, its very own lake, and the famous UEA rabbits! The centre of campus has pretty much everything you might need, with a variety of shops and services, cafés and restaurants. The library is open 24/7, and students can use the Sportspark, which is the largest indoor sports facility in the UK. There are over 200 clubs and societes at UEA, dedicated to everything from korfball to karate, and from cocktails to cosplay! There is something for everyone, and joining a club or society is a great way to make friends and explore your interests. I’m a member of the Japan Society and the Scandinavian Society, and it’s a lot of fun. The Union of UEA Students also hosts themed club nights in the LCR, the campus venue, as well as live music acts such as The Killers and Bastille. There is always something happening on campus, and living there is something every student should try. The university offers a wide range of campus accommodation at great prices, and living in halls has been one of the highlights of my time here.

Norwich is a great city to study in – it’s just the right size, with lots of history, great shopping opportunities, and vibrant nightlife! The Riverside area with its restaurants, bars and cinemas is popular with students, and there are two big malls and shops of all kinds and sizes for all your shopping needs. The Norwich market has stood in the same place for nearly 1000 years, and it’s great fun to just walk around and take in all the sights and smells. Norwich is also well connected with an international airport, and transport links to both London (less than 2 hours by train!) and Stansted Airport, so getting home for the holidays is easy.

Going abroad to study was a little scary at first, but I’ve really fallen in love with Norwich and the university. Coming to the UEA was the best decision I’ve made, and I’m not the only one who thinks so – in 2013, UEA came 1st in the Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey. In other words, there are no happier students in the UK than the ones at UEA!


Mitt navn er Ida, og jeg går for tiden mitt andre år på studiet Oversetting, Media og Japansk (BA Translation, Media and Japanese). Jeg valgte UEA på grunn av universitetets store utvalg av studieretninger og fag, idylliske beliggenhet i Norwich, og gode rykte, både for kvaliteten på undervisningen og for høy studenttilfredshet. Studiet mitt lar meg kombinere tre fagområder jeg brenner for, og fordype meg i det jeg er mest interessert i ved å velge blant en rekke valgfag. Undervisningen foregår i små grupper, noe som gir studentene muligheten til å delta aktivt og holde dialog med foreleserne , så undervisningsmiljøet er veldig hyggelig og avslappet. Takket være universitetets mer enn 160 utvekslingavtaler på verdensbasis, har studentene også gode muligheter til å ta deler av studiene i utlandet – jeg kommer til å tilbringe mitt neste år i Japan, og jeg gleder meg masse!

Universitetets campus er et vakkert område, med store grøntområder, en egen innsjø, og de berømte UEA-kaninene! Du finner det meste du trenger i midten av campus, der det finnes en rekke butikker og tjenester, kaféer og restauranter. Biblioteket er åpent 24 timer i døgnet, og studentene kan også bruke Sportsparken, som er det største innendørs idrettsanlegget i Storbritannia. Det finnes over 200 klubber og foreninger for studenter, dedikert til alt fra korfball til karate, og fra cocktails til cosplay! Det finnes noe for alle, og å melde seg inn i en klubb eller forening er en kjempefin mulighet til å bli kjent med folk og å drive med det du er interessert i. Selv er jeg medlem i Japan Society og Scandinavian Society, og stortrives med det. UEA’s studentforening (Union of UEA Students) arrangerer også temafester i The LCR, utestedet/konsertlokalet på campus, samt konserter med velkjente navn som Bastille og The Killers. Det finnes alltid noe å gjøre på campus, og å bo der er noe alle studenter burde prøve. Universitetet leier ut et bredt utvalg studentboliger til gode priser, og å bo på campus har vært et av høydepunktene i min tid som student.

Norwich er en utrolig fin by å studere i – den er akkurat passe stor, har masse historie, kjempegode shoppingmuligheter og et yrende uteliv! Riverside-området er populært blant studentene, med  restauranter, barer og kinoer, og skulle du få lyst til å shoppe har byens to kjøpesentre og butikker av alle slag masse fint å by på. Bymarkedet i Norwich har stått på samme sted i nesten 1000 år, og det er kjempegøy å bare rusle rundt og kikke. Norwich har også en egen internasjonal flyplass, samt gode forbindelser til både London (under 2 timer med tog!) og Stansted flyplass, så å komme seg hjem til ferien er ikke noe problem.

Det å skulle studere i utlandet var litt skremmende i starten, men jeg har forelsket meg helt i Norwich og universitetet. Å dra til UEA for å studere er det beste valget jeg har tatt, og det er jeg ikke alene om å synes – i 2013 fikk UEA 1.plass i Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey. Med andre ord finnes det ingen studenter i hele Storbritannia som er mer fornøyde enn de på UEA!

Norway: Sina - BA Geography and International Development & MA Media and International Development

I have spent the last 4 years of my life at UEA and I’ve loved it! Coming from Norway straight after finishing school at the age of 18, I was very excited to start studying something that I felt really passionate about and to start a new life, but also terrified… I moved into Nelson Court, one of the en suite accommodation buildings on campus and started my BA degree in Geography and International Development.

My room was nice and easy to make into my own, UEA’s campus had everything I needed, the lectures were interesting, and my flatmates were lovely! Four of the girls I randomly ended up in the same flat as during my first year at UEA are now four of my closest friends. Less than 3 months after I first met my flatmates, leaving UEA and Nelson Court over the Christmas break to go to Norway felt strange. UEA very quickly felt like home!

To me, my years at UEA have been amazing. I chose UEA because it is one of the best universities for my subject, but it is also always very highly rated for student satisfaction. Being happy about your student life is almost more important than studying! I am also very glad I didn’t leave a year ago, after my graduation from my undergraduate degree, but instead stayed to do a master’s degree. I ended up studying Media and International Development for a year, learning even more and challenging myself. Learning and studying alongside others from very different backgrounds – even more varied than during my BA – have been really valuable and interesting.

Norwich is a lovely city, for me it was the perfect size, it’s got a countryside charm and everything you need from a city at the same time! Norwich has got shopping centres, many cute cafés and pubs, nightclubs and beautiful historical buildings. As a student at UEA, it is easy to spend most of your time on campus, but Norwich is great and a lovely city to be a student in.

I am not afraid to recommend University of East Anglia to anyone who wants to study in the UK!
