Hi all! My name is Nhu and I am the new Vietnamese International Student Ambassador! 

I am currently in my final year studying Media Studies here at UEA. My time at university has been super fun and I really cannot wait to tell you all about it! 

I first heard about UEA from my older sister. She got the chance to visit the campus during her university days and told me about beautiful it was, so I was highly looking forward to coming 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. The module that I have enjoyed the most so far is Digital Politics. I got to learn more about how technologies influence political processes and how political processes, in turn, influence technology. 

I found the application process relatively easy to complete, as I simply followed the steps on the UCAS website. I still remember that exciting feeling when I received the beautiful UEA prospectus not long after being offered a place. 

Norwich is a beautiful city bursting with arts 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. This 17-day arts festival offers fantastic shows ranging from music to circus and visual arts programmes. The city also has a lot of excellent restaurants and local cafes, which is perfect if you are a foodie like me :) 

If you have any queries about studying at the University of East Anglia or student life overall, please feel free to contact me at vietnamstudents@uea.ac.uk. Alternatively, you could drop me a message on Facebook via Vietnamese Students: University of East Anglia (UEA).
