สวัสดีครับ Hi there!, I’m Non and I am a 2nd year BSc Environmental Sciences student here at UEA. It is also my second year in Norwich. I hope to see you guys here too!
While I said it’s my 2nd year in Norwich, I have been in the UK a little longer than that! After finishing my high school in Thailand, like many of you, I was thinking about going straight to university and looked around both in and outside of Thailand. The UK (and UEA in particular) was one of the top destinations that caught my eyes. One big reason is just like many others look for, the reputation of university in my field of interest. And, UEA is the leading university in Climate Change Study. After a year (and a little bit) here, I never regret choosing UEA. With good quality of teaching and very approachable academics, I have got a wonderful experience studying in ENV doing many hands-on practicals and a lot of discussions. This is also true in other courses; you will be studying in both lectures and small group sessions which is really useful. We also have some fieldworks and a year in Industry which allow student to get experiences in a real working world.
Outside of the study time, there are many things to do. I am part of UEA Thai Society and I also play Volleyball for UEA in BUCS league. In UEA, we have more than 200 societies and 50 clubs for you to choose from, all catered for everyone’s interests. Participating in one of the clubs or societies is a brilliant way to socialize with friends from different courses. Having a space to build friendships with those sharing similar interests and making memories can sure swipe out the feeling of home sick.
Norwich itself is a fine and peaceful city, though they are lots of things today. With the city centre just 2 miles away from campus, it is very convenient to go out for things like groceries shopping, eating out or even night life in city. Plus, Norwich is ranked among those safest cities to live in the UK, so you can feel safe while having enjoying a good evening with your mates.
If you have any questions regarding the application process, campus life or UEA in general, please feel free to contact me via Unibuddy or through the Thai Students Facebook Page.
