Hello all! My name is Nhu Ngo and I am your new Vietnamese International Student Ambassador at UEA! 

I first heard about UEA from my sister, who got the chance to visit the campus during her university days so I was highly looking forward to come here. I got even more excited when I found out that UEA also offered an excellent Media Studies course with a wide range of optional modules that provide outstanding intellectual and practical skills. Along with the support from the friendly staff here at UEA, I know this is exactly where I belong. 

Being at UEA has given me so many opportunities to engage in different roles to enhance my employability. Besides acting as an international student ambassador, I am also a digital ambassador for the School of Art, Media and American Studies. These roles have helped me develop various skills, including team working and communication skills, which will become very useful for my future career. I have also gained much valuable knowledge from the staff and fellow students around me while undertaking these roles that can not be attain else where. 

Norwich is such a beautiful city bursting with art and culture, being England’s first UNESCO City of Literature. There is always something going on all the time so everyone can come and explore. My favourite event throughout the year is probably the Norfolk and Norwich Festival, a 17 day arts festival that offers fantastic shows ranging from music to circus and visual arts programmes.  

If you have any queries about studying at the University of East Anglia, why not chat to me directly through the Ask a Student platform? Please also feel free to contact me at vietnamstudents@uea.ac.uk or drop me a message on the Vietnamese Students Facebook page.
