Natalia - our Mexico Ambassador

Hola! My name is Natalia and I am currently doing a masters in Climate Change and International Development. When applying for a masters I looked at other options but UEA caught my eye since the course they offered couldn’t have been a better fit for what I wanted to do.

Of course, before deciding to come I did a thorough investigation to see if UEA was for me. The university has a great reputation and out of the 16,000+ students in the university over 2,800 are internationals which gives you the opportunity to meet people from all over the world such as Norway, Russia, Japan, Italy and more!

The university offers many opportunities to grow both academically and professionally, from career fairs to seminars to meeting people such as Jane Goodall and Isabel Allende, there is always a chance to expand your horizons. The university provides many services that support students throughout their time at UEA. They understand that being away from home can sometimes be difficult and want to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible - want to help build a home away from home. 

Speaking of home, from the moment I arrived at UEA and Norwich it felt like home! People are very friendly and there are many places to see and explore making it very difficult to get bored. In a 3-minute walk from the university you can immerse yourself in nature see a bit of wildlife and even meet some ponies on the way. There are infinite societies to join, they have something for everyone - from pasta society to wall climbing society to yoga society, you will always find someone with common interests and make great friends along the way. 

So far, I have made lifelong friends whom I have shared great experiences with. I have also learned so much from amazing professors who are always available to help and none of these things would have been possible if I hadn’t come to UEA.  The university has excelled my expectations and I am sure it will do the same for you!

Why not chat to me directly through the Ask a Student platform. If you have any questions feel free to contact me through the Latin American students Facebook page or you can email me at
