Caio - our Brazilian Student Ambassador

Welcome! My name is Caio Biasoli and I am a student of BA International Relations here at UEA. Before being an undergraduate student here, I also did an International Foundation year in Humanities and Law at INTO UEA, which allowed me to get to know campus life and, ultimately, gave me certainty that this is where I wanted to study for the next few years of my life.

I remember like it was yesterday - I arrived on campus and was completely shocked by how beautiful it is. You are constantly surrounded by beautiful nature contrasting with the award-winning architecture and fully equipped campus facilities – shops, banks, bars, launderettes, restaurants, a museum, a sport centre, a phenomenal 24/7 library and much more. Not to mention the incredible range of accommodation available on and off campus.

I was also amazed with the quality of the lectures and student support. This is a world-renowned university with a rich historical academic foundation that is certainly going to make your CV stand out. All classes provide you with privileged access to literature and a very qualified professor. You are constantly supported by entire departments worried about your wellbeing and performance, so you can count on UEA for help with essay writing, English language difficulties, housing and even career enquiries! From the UEA Student Union, CareerCentral to the Student Support team, you will find that everyone wants to help you make the most of your opportunity to study here.

And if you are worried about meeting new people here – don’t be! There are over 200 clubs and societies all eager to have new members like yourself getting involved. Joining the Volleyball Society really helped me with getting to know people from other courses.

And let’s not forget about Norwich, it is simply stunning. This is one of the safest and happiest cities to live in the UK; you have a mix of quiet streets with the thriving city life, including fine restaurants and pubs, charming shops and a vibrant cultural scene that made me fall in love with this place even more.

All this creates a friendly and welcoming environment like no other. Truly, it is not an understatement to say that “UEA is wonderful”, as we often chant in UEA sports events. We are very proud of the high standards of life quality here – and I am sure you will be too! I am living the best time of my life and I recommend it to everyone.
