Norwegian student ambassador

My name is Sina, I am 22 years old and I have been at UEA for over three years. I have now moved on from my first degree and I am here as a master’s student. I completed a bachelor’s degree in Geography and International Development in the summer of 2017 and came back to the university in September to study for a master's degree in Media and International Development - I love studying here so much I couldn't bear the thought of leaving after graduation.

UEA has the full student experience and the environment for studying has everything one would need as a student - it’s a great place to be in regards to academics and the courses, but the life here is such an important part of it. I study with people from all over the world, there’s a seemingly infinite number of activities outside of the course, such as different societies, different sports clubs and teams to join - as well as everything that happens in Norwich as a city.


I think what I enjoy so much about UEA is that it has got so many different aspects to it - it is a university that does not shy away from being a little bit alternative, it’s warm and welcoming. It has students from over 120 nations, with all kinds of backgrounds, religions and identities. As an international student, it is easy to feel at home.

The campus at UEA is a short bus ride (with very frequent buses) outside the historical city of Norwich. No matter how wonderful Norwich is, you'll find almost everything you need on campus. The campus has all kinds of things in addition to the teaching rooms and lecture theatres; a large art gallery, a library that is open 24/7, a Waterstones bookshop, three student bars, a large Sportspark, a great venue called the LCR that hosts all kinds of events, plenty of places to grab food or drinks, as well as being connected to a large green area with a lake that is perfect for walks or picnics.

One of my favourite places on campus is the Student Union House, which is the home of the student union. It has the bars and the LCR, as well as a nice café, but also plenty of area to sit during breaks. It is the busy heart of student life at UEA, with stalls from different student clubs almost every day and a bakery that comes in every week - there’s always something to keep up with.

I am very happy to receive any questions about myself or the university, so please drop me a message either through the Norwegian Students: University of East Anglia page on Facebook or email


Jeg heter Sina, er 22 år gammel og har vært på UEA i over tre år nå. Jeg har gjort ferdig bachelorgraden min og er her nå som masterstudent. Jeg fullførte en bachelor i Geography and International Development sommeren 2017 og kom tilbake til universitetet i september for å ta en mastergrad i Media and International Development - jeg elsker å studere her så mye at jeg ikke likte tanken på å forlate universitetet etter graduation.

UEA gir en ordentlig studentopplevelse og miljøet for å studere tilbyr alt man trenger som student - det er et fantastisk sted å være med tanke på akademia og studiene, men livet her er en enorm del av erfaringen. Jeg studerer med folk fra over hele verden, det er et nærmest uendelig antall av aktiviteter som skjer utenom studiene, for eksempel forskjellige foreninger, sportklubber og lag man kan være med på - i tillegg til alt som skjer i Norwich by.  

Jeg tror det jeg liker så mye med UEA er at det er så mange forskjellige sider ved universitetet - det er et universitet som ikke er redd for å være litt alternativt, det er varmt og ønsker alle velkommen. Det er studenter fra over 120 land, med alle mulige bakgrunner, religioner og identiteter. Som internasjonal student er det lett å føle seg hjemme.

Campus på UEA er en kort busstur (og bussene går ofte) utenfor den historiske byen Norwich. Samme hvor fin Norwich er, så finner man nesten alt man trenger på campus. I tillegg til klasserom og forelesningssaler, så finner man alt mulig på campus: et stort kunstgalleri, et bibliotek som er åpent 24/7, en Waterstones-bokhandel, tre barer, et stort idrettsanlegg, en bra scene hvor alle mulige eventer arrangeres, mange steder å kjøpe mat eller drikke. Universitetet ligger også i tilknytning til et stort grøntområde, med en innsjø perfekt for gåturer eller pikniker.

Et av mine favorittsteder på campus er Student Union House, hvor studentforeningen hører hjemme. Det er der barene og the LCR er, i tillegg til en bra kaffebar, men også mange sitteplasser for pauser. Det er det travle hjertet i studentlivet ved UEA, det er boder fra forskjellige studentklubber nesten hver dag og et bakeri kommer inn nesten hver uke - det er alltid noe å følge med på.

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!
