Meet Your Ambassador Meet Your Ambassador

Central Asia Student Ambassador 

Are you an international student looking for answers? Well, look no further! I am Zarif, the ambassador for Central Asia and Caucasus, and I am here to help you figure out this confusing world of studying abroad.  

I have graduated from the University of Birmingham in International relations with Economics, and have a good experience in not only helping International students but also going through all of it myself! I am a postgrad, doing MSc in Economics - I have chosen UEA because of its huge legacy in Experimental & Behavioural Economics, as well as its global impact in research and development. 

UK is one of the best places to live and study in, and I cannot wait to show you that. Norwich, in particular, is truly a hidden gem that actually reminds me of beautiful old towns of Caucasus & Central Asia with narrow streets and so much art, architecture and history. Funnily enough, it is a very hip place too, you will not get bored with so much to do in the city centre such as having some tasty street food, going out on a Friday night on the riverside with your friends or visiting famous beaches all around the East Coast with some packed lunch.

Good thing about being an ambassador is that we always know the answer to your question - even if we do not know how to help you we definitely know who can. So please do not hesitate to get in touch, you can either send me a quick email on azerbaijanistudents@uea.ac.ukkazakhstudents@uea.ac.uk or you can contact me on Facebook.

Azerbaijan: Kanan Mehdizade

I'm Kanan Mehdizade, undergraduate student at University of East Anglia.

I spent lots of time on my way to making the right choice of university.  My past academic records allowed me to choose from a range of top UK universities and I came up with UEA.  The University supports me in all aspects of academic and social life.  Getting the most out of your university experience requires effective time management.   My choice was to study finance and accounting.  I would like to say big a thank you to Norwich Business School (NBS) and all the educational facilities at UEA.

My academic life at UEA matches the targets I set before starting my educational path.  I learned how to think creatively and critically without any external assistance. The finance and accounting course enabled me to understand deeply the most current issues in both the theoretical and practical side of finance and accountancy.  I enrolled in seminars, presentations and talks given by people from industry on a daily basis.  UEA gave me all the mentoring and guidance I needed to understand my field of studies and gain some further knowledge about it. UEA always provides you with the opportunity to learn by yourself and to get feedback from your professors or seminar leaders. The teaching style is flexible and allows you to question and find the answers by discussion and reflexion.   Additional reasons for choosing NBS are the exemptions from certain professional examinations and teaching by a wide range of professionals both from industry and the academic world, which have   built me up as a professional and academic person.

Nothing else gives you the passion to learn and study as much as the social environment surrounding you.  UEA is well known for its campus facilities and provides for all the needs you could possibly have.  Campus Kitchen, LCR concert hall, student union, the shop, sports park – these all add to student life on a daily basis. Apart from the campus, the city itself is very convenient and close to the University. By convenient, I mean all the shopping, restaurant and entertainment places are very close to one another, so that you don't need to spend so much time exploring.  You could either be a movie fan or prefer to spend your time partying - you have chosen the right place to live in.

I have worked hard to get the most out of my three years here and I wish you luck if you decide to take this exciting opportunity.
