Christopher Richardson

 Hello there! I’m Nadiah Nik Arif and I’m the International Student Ambassador for Malaysia! 

I have heard about UEA through Education Fairs and family members. The reason I chose UEA is because of their expertise in Economics, especially Environmental Economics as that is the area I want to further venture into. UEA is known to be one of the leading institutions for climate research! 

Apart from that, UEA has a beautiful campus, which was one of the features that drew me to UEA during my application process. I love how UEA is surrounded by nature such as the lake, where I would usually go for walks when I need a break from work.  

Being at UEA has given me a lot of opportunities to develop my personal skills and gain relevant experience. I am a part of the Norwich Economic Papers as Creative Editor, which allows me to explore topics that are relevant to my course. I am also Course Representative and a Buddy (SU) volunteer, which allow me to help other students and be more involved in campus activities.  

Moving away from the university, my life in Norwich has been an amazing experience! Norwich has many cute cafes for you to do work or have casual lunch with friends. You can also find attractive places such as the Castle Museum and Norwich Cathedral.  

If you have any questions about studying at University of East Anglia or living in Norwich, don’t hesitate to reach out to me through Unibuddy platform or email me at
