Vick our Taiwan ambassador

Hi, I am Yu-wei Cheng (Vick), the UEA Taiwanese Student Ambassador. I am currently a postgraduate student studying Marketing and Management at Norwich Business School at UEA. I also studied my Undergraduate Degree in Intercultural Communications with Business Management at UEA. 

The main reason for me to come back to study at UEA is because of the lovely campus and high ranking and excellent research background in many areas. I was attracted by the landscape of the campus, the lake and its surroundings are retired and quiet, also the amazing building at UEA, especially the Sainsbury Centre for visual arts and the famous Ziggurats accommodation. Such a great environment in East Anglia, does make UEA different from any other university. 

My favourite thing about studying here is that UEA offer a different range of modules in my course. A freedom to choose a different combination between different modules enhances my knowledge in a variety of academic areas. Moreover, you can make a lot of friends from a range of different cultures from different schools. This builds up your social network around the world in the future. 

Also, Norwich is a historical, beautiful and safe city which has a fantastic natural environment and friendly people. Norwich has an ancient market place, which is my favourite place to shop and eat. It's located in the heart of Norwich. In there, you can find a range of shops and foods from around the world. For example, Japanese steam bun; the orient express shop; the city fish shop and more for you to come and discover. 

If you have any questions about studying at the The University of East Anglia,  why not chat to me directly through the Ask a Student platform. Email me at or drop me a message on our Facebook page.
