Aigul our central Asian Student Ambassador smiles in a centrally framed photo

Hello, everyone! My name is Aigul, and I am the International Ambassador for Central Asia. 

I am currently studying for my MA in Globalisation, Business and Sustainable Development at UEA. I chose UEA primarily for its excellent curriculum focused on climate change and international development. This course not only provides a diverse range of modules but also integrates a work placement opportunity. This optional module, offers students the chance to engage in work placements globally, significantly enhancing their practical experience, both in the UK and across the world. Additionally, UEA's 50-year leadership in environmental studies and climate change research further reinforced my decision to join this University. 

The UEA community is lively and diverse. Apart from academics, getting involved in clubs and societies is an excellent way to meet like-minded people and make new friends. There are a bunch of clubs and groups on campus, offering plenty of chances to socialise and connect with others.  

Moreover, the extensive green spaces at UEA make it a joy to take leisurely walks or bike rides through the parkland. The UEA lake is a great place to take a break or enjoy a relaxed afternoon. It is a peaceful place with benches where everyone can sit and relax, watch the ducks, or just take in the calming view of the water. Walking around the lake is also a great way to unwind and recharge before getting back to study. 

Norwich Market is one of my favourite spots in the city. It's an amazing place to explore if you are looking for a quick bite or special gifts. You can find all sorts of stuff there. The market also offers delicious local food like bread, jams, cheeses, and more. With its mix of lovely stalls and delicious food, it's a must-visit place in Norwich.
