South Asia Student Ambassador
Hello! My name is Shahreen. I'm a postgraduate student studying International Relations at the University of East Anglia which has truly international vibes with its multicultural environment. I chose UEA because it is one of the fifteen best universities in the UK and it has got ninety percent overall student satisfaction rate. UEA has also been awarded Gold ranking in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF).
In addition, the UEA campus is amazing where one can get everything from on campus accommodation to the facility of a library which is open 24/7 all year. There is a bank for new students to open their bank accounts and a post room for the parcels. Moreover, halal food is easily available in the campus kitchen and in many other places. There is an Olympic size swimming pool in the Sports Park and a gym with all the facilities. For art lovers, Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts is a heaven having an art gallery and a museum all located inside the campus.
As an international student, support of every kind is readily available at International Student Advice Team (ISAT), Student Support Services and Hubs. Moreover, a personal advisor for each student is also there to help on well being and studies. So no worries guys because you are going to have help at every step. Also, there are more than 200 societies and clubs where you can go to learn the new skills and to polish the existing ones.

Bangladesh: Oahidul - MSc in Marketing
I am Oahidul, a Bangladeshi post graduate student. I have completed my MSc in Marketing, Norwich Business School (NBS) in 2009.
UEA is among the top 20 universities in UK. I was amazed when I arrived in UEA for the first time, because the campus was so beautiful and everything was very well organised for international students' arrival day. The campus is a great combination of nature and modern architecture. As a business student I can say that, the quality of education is outstanding at UEA. All the members of staff and lecturers are very helpful. As an international student I thought I would face a lot of problems such as accommodation, new environment, meeting new people, however I was wrong. I adjusted very quickly and met many people within first week of my arrival.
UEA is located in the city of Norwich. It takes less than 2 hour by train to get to London. Norwich is not as big as London but it offers every facility one needs or wants and it is known to be the safest city in the UK. Norwich is also not expensive compare to London. University offers a special student rate for a bus pass which is for the whole year. Students can travel any day and time within Norwich and other nearby cities. This can be obtained at the UEA travel shop.
UEA offers great student life on campus. This helps to recover from the pressure of studies. Students can join over 100sport, cultural and academic societies. I really enjoyed my student life in Norwich. The UEA Student Union is very active and locals are very friendly. I have lots of friends now from different parts of the world. This is one part of my student life I enjoyed the most. I have met people from over 25 countries at UEA and now I can say I know a lot about those countries, cultures and traditions. I have made great friends for life.
Studying Marketing in one of the best Business Schools at the leading university in the UK is not easy. It can be stressful and hectic before the exams and deadline for course works but school is very helpful and lecturers have time to speak to students.
Before arriving in the UK and Norwich in general I was worried that I will not be able to find 'Halal' food. I thought it will not be available in Norwich but I was proved wrong. I could buy Halal meat very easily in the supermarkets and even UEA canteen offered meals made of Halal meat. UEA also have Islamic Centre and it was very nice for me to pray Jumma prayer and Eid prayer with my friends and brothers. During Ramadan UEA Mosque organises iftars and we even celebrate Eid.
I believe I made a right choice coming to UEA and I am proud to have studied here.
