Destiny Onu

Hello, I’m Seyi and I’m the International Ambassador for Nigeria. 

I decided to study at UEA because of its reputation in Development Studies and the opportunity for work placements. I found the application process to be very straightforward and I received prompt responses to my queries. 

I am studying MA International Development. I enjoy this program because it is  multidisciplinary and contemporary. You see things discussed in class play out in real life, yet it is also challenging and encourages you to think critically.   

I’m also part of the DEV Diversity Committee, whose main goal is to address issues of diversity in UEA and ensure changes in policies that make for the inclusion of under-represented groups in the department of International Development.   

From living in Norwich, I’ve found the people to be very welcoming; everyone I have come across seems willing to offer their assistance and my lecturers encourage us to express our original opinions on subjects we’re discussing.   

Why not chat to me directly through the Ask a Student platform, email or see the Nigerian Students Facebook page
