My name is Kamala and I am an Accounting and Finance student in UEA. I chose UEA because of its high ratings in the Business field and because of its comfortable location. My academic life at UEA is very productive as Norwich Business School provides us with a wide range of useful and interesting modules. Second year is very exciting as I get to know better my futures profession and I feel more confident in my choice to study accounting and finance. Teaching staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Lecturers and seminar leaders help me to improve my analytical and practical skills through different assignments and study cases. Working in groups in seminars helps me to increase my team-working and leadership skills. Seminars and lectures not only give you theoretical knowledge but also share practical matters about how it all works in the real world. At UEA there is always someone available to help. Besides responsive professors, the teaching office and the Dean of Students, each student has a personal adviser who is ready to advise you on any issue.


There are many facilities on campus that make my life in UEA easier and more entertaining. UEA Library works 24/7 and provides students with computers and silent study areas. I can always find any book I’m looking for in the library and borrow it for a short-term. Laundrette operates 24/7 as well and it’s super comfortable in terms of location. There are four launderettes on campus and each of them has washing and drying machines. Campus kitchen located right in the middle of the UEA Square and serves three-course wide range meals on weekdays. Student Union Shop, Barclays Bank, Career Central, Ziggy’s, Bar and Union Café can be found on the square as well. Sportspark offers various kinds of sports and activities for students including swimming and rock climbing. Sainsbury Centre of Visual Arts is one of the most prominent university art galleries in Britain. And of course UEA Lake – the most peaceful and beautiful place on campus.

Apart from my studies, life at UEA is really interesting and exciting. Living on campus is such a great opportunity to make many international friends and enjoy spending time together at UEA and in Norwich. Here I can fully enjoy my social life with friends. A great part of social life experience in UEA is joining societies. More than 350 societies and clubs with absolutely different goals, activities and events. Attending various events and parties adds bright colours to my university life and leaves good memories for years to come. Norwich itself is very nice and pleasant city with a relaxed atmosphere.  There are a number of historical and beautiful places not too far from the campus to visit with friends. In addition, Norwich is one of the safest place in UK.

Today I am fully satisfied to be a part of the University of East Anglia and Norwich Business School and I look forward to another exciting year in my life.

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.
