Hi, everyone! We are Zoe & Hanjing and we are the Chinese International ambassadors here at UEA.
I am currently doing Media Studies at UEA. As a third 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. 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 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 should drop in for yoga, body pump or indoor cycling sessions 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 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 first heard about Norwich because my cousin studied a postgraduate course at UEA. I chose to study in Norwich because I felt that it was a safe quiet city where the people were friendly. It’s a small city, but you can find everything here. There are many fashion shops, supermarkets and two big shopping malls in Norwich.
My course at UEA is Economics and there are plenty of extra lecture and internship opportunities in my school. The library is also open 24 hours and I joined a literature club. At UEA, literature is a very good major and we always read books together on a Friday. UEA has many study groups that can help you. For example, there is a Maths help desk every week and an English language class for international students.
The best thing about studying at UEA is that every teacher genuinely enjoys helping us with our studies. They encourage me to ask questions and to achieve improvement in my course. My favourite thing about living in Norwich is how easy it is to find ingredients in the city centre as I’m always cooking with my friends and housemates.
