Hello, I’m Taf and I’m the International Ambassador for Southern Africa. 

I first heard about UEA from an agent in Zimbabwe, and what made me choose UEA was the diverse and big international student community, the green campus, the high teaching standards that are recognised by TEF as gold rated, and the graduate opportunities.    

The application process was smooth as there was direct communication from the university and I was informed of the International Undergraduate Scholarship available, which l applied for, and am currently a recipient of.   

My first impression of Norwich was that it is a small and safe city that is easily accessible to different locations. It still has all the high street names and also has plenty of small, individual brands that stand out. Life in Norwich is good as it is a safe city and there is a lot to discover about the city itself and the greater region of Norfolk. The train, bus, and airport services available enable easy access to different parts of the country and even Europe. There are beautiful beaches in Cromer and Great Yarmouth. It is full of restaurants to explore and international cuisine to try out.  

When I first came to UEA I was impressed by the green spaces available on campus such as the lake. The big library and its 24/7 service available throughout the year. I was also impressed by the campus facilities like my accommodation which was modern and has a spacious kitchen. It was also good to see that a lot of services were close by including the bank, campus kitchen, and shops for groceries.  

I'm currently a final year student of Accounting and Finance. My course has two hour lectures, an hour of seminars and workshops each week. It is a demanding course but manageable if you stay organised and on top of your learning materials. l personally utilise the library as a place to study as it helps structure my day especially with online learning.  

I have been involved with the Zimbabwean Society which is my home country society whereby we meet up, enjoy traditional food from home, play games, and have good conversations. I also was a member of the Urban Female Movement which has different topics of discussion ranging from natural hair, colourism and women's healthcare.  

I am here to answer any questions you have about UEA, be it about the campus or your course or even about the vibrant Norwich city. Feel free to contact me at or send me a message through our Facebook page
