Our Indonesia Ambassador Nissi

Hi there! My name is Mica Magsanoc and I’m a 3rd year English Literature with Creative Writing student and the International Student Ambassador for South East Asia. 

I was drawn to UEA because of its incredible Creative Writing program that boasts alumni that includes Kazuo Ishiguro and Ian McEwan. I applied through an agency in the Philippines called UKEAS and was paired with a mentor who helped me through every step, ensuring I never felt lost or confused along the way. 

From the very beginning of my time at UEA, my course has challenged me in ways I never knew was possible. What I’ve studied ranges from 17th-century medieval literature to contemporary authors like Bernadine Evaristo, yet you are equally challenged by what each text has to offer. I’ve written all forms of poetry, critical and analytical essays, and even journalistic pieces. There is no limit to what you can do on this course—which is why I love it. You are consistently challenged by your peers and seminar leaders to deep dive into whatever topic of discussion is happening and encouraged to look at everything from a different perspective.  

And when studying and learning on campus is a bit too much for you, there is the wonderful city of Norwich you can escape to. Norwich is a small but exciting city that offers some of the best food, nightlife, history, and culture. The city’s proximity to campus makes it easy to hop on a bus, cycle, or even walk to some of the student’s favorite spots to hang out, relax, and socialize.  When I’m feeling a bit homesick, I like to frequent a lot of Asian restaurants in town such as The Kimchi, Ciscoes, and Shiki. And if I want to unwind with some friends, we’ll watch a movie at The Vue or go for a drink at The Wallow or Wetherspoons. There’s a spot in town for anything and everything—you’ll never feel bored or lost in this small town. 

If you have any questions about studying at the University of East Anglia, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me and I’ll be happy to help you out!
