Hello and Namaste, I am Ranu, a fourth year Mres Intercalating student studying Medicine in UEA. I am originally from Nepal and I chose UEA because it is one of the top universities in UK for student satisfaction. Also, the course provided by UEA is everything I was looking for, the course here not only enables me to learn about medicine but also provide clinical skills from start of the course.
My academic life at UEA is very thorough as we are taught in problem based learning groups which is very helpful. The group is very friendly and represents students coming from diverse backgrounds. PBL not only encourages you to work with different people as a team but also invites you to do independent learning. The modules are laid out in a very organised manner. Also, the support system in UEA is very encouraging, as it comprises of personal advisors, Dean of Student Office, School Hub, there’s always someone you can go to if you ever need any help.
Apart from academics, life at UEA is really exciting. As I am fourth year, I live outside the campus but the campus is nearby if I wanted to use any resources. UEA itself has many facilities such as post office, Sportspark, cafes, multi-faith centre, shops, bank and a medical centre. It also has a lake nearby and the campus is very beautiful. We have various events such as Eid ball, Diwali ball, Holi, Dashara festival throughout the year as well. Outside the university, the city is very pleasant and offers various festivals and events. Norfolk is one of the beautiful counties in the UK and one can also visit a number of historical and beautiful places not far away from the campus.
As a whole, life in UEA is very exciting and fulfilling

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.
