Christopher Richardson

 Hello, I’m Hai Hen and I am the International Ambassador for Malaysia. 

I first heard about UEA at an Aviva insurance event. The reason I choose to study at UEA is because they offered 6 exemptions for my course - Actuarial Science.   

I came from INTO UEA as I’d directly come to Norwich after finishing year 11 in Malaysia. I thought the campus was beautiful! I loved the broad and I remember the lake was frozen when I first came to UEA in late Jan 2019.     

Studying Actuarial Science in Norwich is the best choice I ever made. I thank Norwich for its peaceful, slower pace as it means I can easily release my stress by going out for a walk around the broad or cycling around Norwich city.    

In my first year I was involved in 9 societies, I'm happy to say joining different clubs and societies definitely benefitted me a lot as I managed to get a UEA Gold Award and a very high paid part time job. Now in my second year, I'm the president of Mahjong Society and Vice president of Malaysian Society.      

If you have any questions about studying at the University of East Anglia, why not chat to me directly through the Ask a Student platform or email me at
