Hi, everyone! We are Zoe & Zhongqi and we are the Chinese International ambassadors here at UEA. 


I am currently doing Media Studies at UEA. As a third-year student, I really enjoy the course, as it is not only inspiring but also has facilitated me a range of practical skills. 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. If you are also into learning a new language like me, UEA provides loads of language courses both during the day and in the evening for all students.  

Moreover, what intrigues me the more is the after-school life here.  Apart from the societies of the countries you could join, UEA also has numerous unique societies, which hugely enrich 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 sports clubs, and you could choose any sport you want to play like badminton, racket ball. When you want to switch off from study, you could drop in for yoga, body pump or indoor cycling sessions here, it’s stress relieving and it is a wonderful place to hang out with your friends.  

Last but not least, Norwich is not only an awarded literature city, but it is also one of the safest cities 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.

I am studying finance and management for a master in UEA,The reason I chose this course is that Norwich business school has a strong faculty. It provides us with many resources and opportunities. Every semester has an employment week, you’ll have the opportunity to choose the company you are interested in and submit your CV or talk to them face to face. If there is something you don’t understand in the class, you can send an email directly to the professor. They will answer patiently and encourage you to ask questions proactively.      

Not long after I came to UK, I quickly fell in love with UEA. All my fears and worries about studying abroad disappeared. I won’t feel lonely here because it’s easy to make friends from all over the world.I met my best friend from the conversation club.The worries about language were also solved by the free English language improve program.There are also all kind of interesting events organized by various clubs or societies, you can participate as long as you want. What attracts me most about UEA is the beautiful scenery. I always walk along the lake and enjoy the sunset with my friends on the hillside.    

The longer you stay in Norwich, the more you can feel its charm. This small city in the east of England is safe and quiet, with a strong cultural heritage and close to the sea. I am a big fan of the sea and because of the weekly one-day trips organized by UEA, I can enjoy the various fantastic beaches of Norfolk. The Norwich castle has 900 year-old former Norman palace in the city center,which is a very worth place to see.There are still many wonderful things waiting for you to explore. I believe that studying and living here will become the most precious time in your life.
