Hey I’m Maryanna and I’m the International Ambassador for Brazil.   

The first time I heard about UEA was when I was applying for the Chevening scholarship. I used their course finder tool to search British universities that had master’s degree programmes in my area and luckily found UEA. I found the application process quite simple and self-explanatory and my UEA application was reviewed very quickly.  

Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, I have experienced very little of the city so far. In my rare walks, I always come back home full of inspiration. The city looks lovely and ready to welcome anyone looking for a sense of belonging.  

I am studying MA Media and International Development. The course offers modules that equip the student with theoretical and practical knowledge. The faculty has inspiring people and classes are built based on dialogue and knowledge sharing. Long before I came to Norwich I had the impression that student support was one of UEA's strengths, today I don’t doubt that, my gut feeling was right.  

If you have any questions, there will always be someone at UEA to assist you. Take advantage of the student support that the university offers. Asking questions and listening to what staff, students and alumni have to say is essential to making the right decision. This is especially if you are an international student as this support will be crucial even during your journey if you choose UEA and will give you a sense of belonging. You can chat to me directly through the Ask a Student platform or contact me through our Facebook page or by email at brazilianstudents@uea.ac.uk
