Elizabeth, UEA ambassador for Ghana

Akwaaba! (Welcome) I am Elizabeth Addai, International Student Ambassador-Ghana. I am currently reading MSc Investment and Financial Management.

This is my second master's degree because I basically love learning. The Investment and Financial Management programme spreads and gives an in-depth understanding of Risk, Corporate Governance, Accounting, Finance and Financial Reporting. The course exposes you on how business losses can be mitigated or avoided as well as provide tailored solutions for every business problem through lectures and seminars/workshops.  

I decided to pick this course because, many businesses and individuals have been badly affected by Covid-19 and its related issues. With many businesses folding up and people losing their investments, it has become imperative that strategies are revised, and decisions rethought. Managing assets have evolved over time as new avenues for portfolio managements are introduced and accepted in many organizations and countries. There is therefore a demand for talents and skills in this sector. UEA also has great opportunities for students who would want to certify with an International Organizations like CFA and CISI.

The NBS employability week are great sessions for students to have career advice and knowledge of skills needed to fit in job market as well as entrepreneurship.  Seminar sessions allow you to work in teams and on diverse projects, so you get to experience and practice what you learn. Assessment support sessions are also available to help you deliver excellently on your assessments. 

Norwich is an interesting city as it combines both modern and traditional way of life. You get to have so much fun as you tour the city with so many ancient attractions. It is also very affordable to live here. The market at the city centre, trains and buses which can take you to other exciting cities like Cambridge through to London in a reasonable period makes Norwich worth living in. I love how I can have fun in the nights with my friends with no fears!

Choosing UEA out of the many University options was because of the ease of the application process and their quick responses. You get relevant answers to your queries, and you even have a chance to speak to other students. I applied personally through their website, but they directed me to an experienced agent (Intake) to assist me with my visa application process which went smoothly. I enjoyed the pre-departure webinar in Ghana by Mrs Derby Okoh who gave me the school experience even before I got here. UEA is basically home away from home!
