Roshni Bahri

Hey! We’re Zaafirah Haider and Chaitali Mandal, we’re the International Ambassadors for India! 


Hello! I’m Zaafirah and I come from a very culturally rich city called Kolkata also known as the city of joy! At UEA we celebrate festivals all year round such as Diwali and Holi that is accompanied by dances, desi music and traditional food alongside events like Go Global where we get to experience cultures from across the globe.

I’ve always had an interest in learning about world economies, markets, risk management and sustainability. Therefore, I’ve taken up Economics as my undergraduate course at UEA. The modules provided for Economics here are a good mix of theory and technical application which makes it even more interesting.

My favourite thing about UEA is its beautiful campus and its strategic location having the SU shop, Boots, Ziggy’s and the Student Information Zone all in the same place. Alongside this is the extremely helpful faculty where we are provided with all the help we need, not only academically but also non-academically with wellbeing and mental health workshops and schemes such as ‘BuddySu’.

Being far away from home can be intimidating at first but the city of Norwich is very warm and welcoming. Going into town from campus only takes around 10 minutes and exploring the markets, cathedral and the riverside is a great experience.

I hail from the city of joy - Kolkata, and it is no surprise that I take over my city in radiating on its vibes to the fullest at least in my gastronomic preferences. Earlier I have also had the opportunities to work with brands like Tinder and Viral fission as a student ambassador as well as a team leader. 

Being a social media influencer, a content creator, a certified ice cream taster and a food enthusiast did not seem enough so I picked global business management to quench my thirst in marketing and the economies of the world, this is the course I am currently pursuing my Msc in and it is a wonderful melange of subjects like brands & strategy, responsible business, innovation and organisational transformation, social media marketing, digital business management and more. 

Of all the reasons I could tell you why I picked the UEA, my favorites would be the gigantic campus, the economic accommodation options available as compared to the rest of the United Kingdom and ofcourse the student services and facilities available for students including healthcare and sports facilities. 

I am not too big of a fan of the rains, more like the aftereffects of it and was so thankful to learn Norwich is among the drier cities in the United kingdom. Also the fact that you can go around the entire city in a day even by public transport that is incredibly affordable is just the cherry on top! 

I took assistance from an Agent with regards to my application although I would highly recommend that you do your own research on the courses instead of going in with the herd, however I did have a positive experience with them and the UEA has always been supportive towards any of my queries.
