Destiny Onu

Hello! we're Henry and Bisola, the International student ambassadors for Nigeria. 


Hi there! I’m Henry, the Student Ambassador for Nigeria. I am proudly an Igbo Boy from Enugu State with Chiagozie as native name. I hold a bachelor’s degree in History and International Relations, and currently studying for a Master’s degree in Education and Global Development in the school of Developmental Studies. I am very much interested in the Sustainable development Goal 4 which is achieving Quality Education and how best Leaders across the world will develop effective policies to ensure a Safe, Inclusive and welcoming environment for Education to thrive.  

⁠Making University of East Anglia my first and only choice is as a result of thoroughly researched and documented ranking both in academic excellence, and inclusivity report.  It is one the best schools where international students are well appreciated in their respective cultural background. The university is so diverse that you will never feel alone at any point in time. I have come to call Norwich home and the University my adopted Family.  

The learning style in the university is one which I must say is very wonderful. Across board it is very welcoming of any learning style you are familiar with. The Lecturers are so welcoming, always willing to attend to your every need and support you always.  

I am passionate about Nature, Blogging and Playing sports. I am proud member of the Nigerian Society at the University, a strong supporting society always looking out for one-another.  One of my favorite places in the campus has to be the Student Union Building; that is my go-to place for relaxation with a game of pool, table tennis or darts at the Postgraduate Bar.  

The city of Norwich is very peaceful, welcoming and interesting, it is filled with so many lovely places to visit, especially in Anglia Square where I like to head down to buy wonderful species I use in cooking, and contrary to what is said, it is affordable. 

The University has given me the best opportunity in meeting and creating wonderful memories with people from different nationalities and cultures. I am always available to answer any questions you have in mind about schooling in this prestigious institution, feel free to get across to me on Unibuddy with any question.  



My journey to this land of 'many stories' - Norwich, is that of intense research that uncovered loads of fascinating realities amongst which is the combination of aesthetic medieval architecture and academic excellence . 

UEA is a school that harmonizes students from different countries with diverse ethnicities via the availability of different groups and clubs in order to foster social interactions among students. UEA is also highly student-cantered in terms of prioritizing and providing quality academic and wellbeing support at various levels. More interesting is the fast admission process, timely responses to enquiries and the flexible payment methods which is the icebreaker. The Nigerian representative and student ambassadors also makes the admission process a lot easier by being usually accessible and available to douse the flames of confusion and give clear directions where necessary.

I love the study of human nature and health and have always found myself within the spheres of leadership and responsibility at every point, and that is where my interest in health and wellbeing was birthed. Studying nursing in the school of Health Sciences at UEA has proven to be a step in the right direction; to mention a few will be the gripping practical simulation sessions, one-on-one mentorship educational system whereby students' academic growth is every lecturer's concern. Also, the inter-professional learning opportunity where students from other faculties within the school of health sciences learn to work together to promote excellent teamwork which underpins the Nursing profession. 

I love taking long walks along the school’s riverside which gives a glimpse of the epic coastal sceneries that surrounds UEA and grabbing a cup of coffee from Ziggy's or I choose to chill in the evenings with friends for a fun-time at the scholars bar on campus: UEA is simply home from home for me.
