Hello, I’m Haashim and I’m the International Ambassador for Mauritius. 

I first came across UEA during my AS-Level through a University fair. There were several reasons behind why I chose UEA; the first and foremost reason is the ranking of the University: when I joined UEA, the university was among the top 15 universities in UK and among the top 200 University worldwide. UEA also offered me the chance to get into a university that would help me decide what I want to do later on in life by offering the possibility to shift courses within the Business School, this was something I really needed after high school.  

I also fell in love of the city; Norwich is such a beautiful, cosy and safe city, everything is so accessible. UEA was also offering me a very good scholarship which was something I really needed as I don't come from a very wealthy family and it provided my family with less of a financial burden.  

I changed course after my first year, from Accounting and Finance to Business Finance and Management, UEA was really flexible and I’m not sure that all universities would have given me that opportunity. I've also been the course rep for my course for three years, so I was able to talk about any issues with academics and help to improve the life of the students within my course.  

My advice to new students would be to make as much as you can of your first year, break the ice and  approach people and strengthen your network, UEA is full of people from all across the world from all type of background so take the opportunity to meet them.   

UEA has a great choice of societies and clubs to get involved with: I'm the president of the Mauritian society, Equality and Diversity Officer of the International Student Society and Social Secretary of the Islamic Society. You can chat to me directly through the Ask a Student, email me at or contact me through the Mauritian Students Facebook page
