Eun-Jin Kwon, Korean Student Ambassador

Hi everyone! I’m Eun-Jin Kwon, the Korean Student Ambassador at UEA!

I’m currently studying MSc Climate Change and International Development. I finished my undergraduate in Chemical Engineering at a Korean university. After graduating from the university, I worked for 5 years in several countries (Tanzania, Pakistan, and Nigeria). I conducted Official Development Assistant (ODA) projects for the Korean Government.

UEA is well-known for having great curriculums for global development*. You can select a particular course in which you have an interesting sector. In terms of my course, it provides a wide range of modules, including modules in environmental science. Also, practitioner sessions provide field experiences from current workers in various organizations. In addition, we belong to the Global Development department*. Therefore, you can interact with many colleagues from diverse backgrounds and share your experience and idea through seminars and discussions.

Also, UEA provides various activities and services in student unions. My favorite activity is the ‘Day walks’ society which organizes day trips within Norfolk. If you like trekking, you can join this society every week. These activities will refresh you during studying time. Even if you’re not a member of the societies, you can attend trial sessions and choose them.

Norwich city is calm and peaceful. It just takes 2 hours from London by train. Although it is a small city, you can find big markets and buy every item. Also, it is an excellent place to concentrate on studying.

Studying abroad is exciting, but it also comes with concerns. If you have questions, please feel free to ask.

안녕하세요! 이스트 앵글리아 대학교에서 한국대사를 맡은 권은진입니다.

저는 현재 기후변화 및 국제개발학과(Climate change and International Development)에 석사과정에 재학 중입니다. 저는 한국에서 화공생명공학과 학사과정을 졸업했고, 졸업 후 5년 동안 여러 국가(탄자니아, 파키스탄, 나이지리아)에서 한국 정부 개발원조(ODA) 사업을 수행했었습니다.

이스트 앵글리아 대학교는 개발학부 내 세부적이며 다양한 전공을 가진 학교로 널리 알려져 있습니다. 개발학부 내 관심 있는 분야(섹터)의 전공을 선택할 수 있습니다.

특히 제 전공 분야는 국제개발 및 기후변화 분야 수업과 환경과학 분야 수업을 같이 들을 수 있습니다. 또한 Practitioner session이 포함되어, 여러 기관의 현직자들이 전하는 강의도 들을 수 있습니다. 아울러 개발학부에 속해 있어서 다양한 경험이 있는 다른 과 학생과도 경험을 나누고 세미나 및 토론을 할 수 있는 기회가 많습니다.

이스트 앵글리아 대학은 학생들에게 다양한 활동과 서비스를 제공합니다. 저는 ‘Day walks’라는 동아리에서 노퍽주 일일 여행을 하는 활동을 하고 있습니다. 트레킹을 좋아하신다면 매주 참여하실 수 있습니다. 동아리 활동은 여러분이 공부하는 동안 기분전환을 시켜줄 것입니다. 동아리는 회원이 아니더라도 참여할 수 있으며, 체험활동 후 동아리를 선택할 수 있습니다.

런던에서 기차로 2시간 정도 걸리는 노리치는 조용하고 평화롭습니다. 작은 도시이지만 백화점, 문화시설, 대형마트 등이 있으며 대형마트에서는 다양한 식자재 및 생필품을 구매할 수 있습니다. 또한 혼잡하지 않으며 공부에 집중하기 좋은 환경입니다.

해외 유학 생활은 기대감을 주면서도 걱정이 되기도 합니다. 입학 준비하시면서 궁금한 점이 있다면 언제든 연락주시기 바랍니다.
