Hi, everyone! My name is Zou and I am China ambassador here for you at UEA.

I am currently doing Media Studies in UEA. As a second year student, I have to say that the course really brings me a lot of fun while learning all the practical stuff. We have film production and TV production, which you could experience working in the TV studio and get hold of equipment used on big shoots. Plus, I chose Japanese as one of my modules this year. It is so much fun when you could literally talk to Japanese students in the conversation session in Japan society. If you are also into learning a new language like me, UEA provides loads of languages courses both in the daytime and night  for all students.

Moreover, what intrigues me more is the after-school life here.  Apart from the societies of the countries you like, we have numerous unique societies, enriching your leisure time. For example, if you are a garlic bread lover, why not join the garlic bread society. We have a great number of sport clubs, I am also doing taekwondo twice a week in the large Sportspark on campus. When you are tired of study, you’d better drop yourself in the yoga, body pump or indoor cycling session here, it’s stress relieving and it is a good place to hang out with your friends.

Last but not least, Norwich is not only an awarded literature city, it is also the safest city in the UK. If you want a chilled and peaceful study atmosphere, study here. And as a location advantage, we are close to Cambridge and London, which means you could easily go to academic seminars you like and visit a lot of famous writers and scholars coming from China in Cambridge and experience the authentic big city life in London. After that, you will gradually feel the attractiveness of Norwich.

Anyway, please get in touch with me if you have any questions. I will be so happy if I could solve any questions for you! why not chat to me directly through the Ask a Student platform or contact me by email: Chinesestudents@uea.ac.uk
