Hello! I’m Alicia and I’m the International Ambassador for South East Asia. 

I discovered UEA because a few of my cousins have studied here and I’d heard good things about the University through an Educational Representative in Brunei. I applied through UCAS and with the help of an agent, I was able to get in contact with the previous international recruitment ambassador on behalf of UEA, who answered lots of my questions.  

I'm currently in my 4th year of Pharmacy. My study life at UEA revolves around my friends and sticking around in the library from morning till night, or even the next day! I've met a lot of friends whilst studying at UEA and who have supported me through my studies and personal life.   

The best things for me about studying at UEA is the peaceful and safe city; Norwich is a conveniently centralised city which offers beautiful old alleys and food and coffee you can’t forget. 

If you have any questions about studying at the University of East Anglia Why not chat to me directly through the Ask a Student platform, email me at bruneistudents@uea.ac.uk or message me on Facebook
