Brazilian Student Ambassador

Hello! My name is Alice Viana and I am an undergraduate at UEA’S Business Management course.

To be honest, when I finished high school I had no idea of what I wanted to study in college, I just knew I wanted to see the world. Fortunately, I had the opportunity to travel and realised that it did not matter where I was, one thing I could be sure: There would be a McDonalds or a Starbucks, and I would be “safe”. That was when I knew I wanted to take on a business course, because globalisation has allowed companies to integrate different cultures, and most importantly, people.

Where would be a better place to learn business and gain international experience than the United Kingdom? UK universities attract thousands of international students every year mainly because they are able to combine great academic teaching with amazing international social experience.

UEA is a perfect place to enjoy both a great academic structure, with modern facilities and great supportive teacher and staff, and a thrilling social life. Norwich is an interesting city, where a little bit of everything can be found, from historical sights to cool contemporary stores and events.

Being an international student is scary and exciting at the same time. Moving far away from home can be hard to many, especially if you are used to the warmth of Brazilians and the weather. The university knows this and has a whole international team that offers great support every step of the way. Our ambassador’s team is formed by UEA students from all over the world, and is dedicated to help with any queries.

So, if there are any questions you would like to ask me, do not hesitate to ask! Feel free to contact me through the Facebook link above or send an email to I look forward to hearing from you!

Oi! Meu nome é Alice Viana e atualmente estudo Business Management na UEA.

Para ser sincera quando terminei o ensino médio eu não fazia a menor ideia do que eu queria estudar na universidade, eu só sabia que queria viajar pelo mundo. Felizmente, eu tive a oportunidade de realizar meu sonho e percebi uma coisa: não importava onde que estivesse, eu sempre iria encontrar um Mcdonalds ou um Starbucks e estaria “salva”. Foi aí que me dei conta que queria fazer um curso de business, pois graças à globalização diferentes culturas e mais importante ainda, pessoas, se unem.

Qual lugar melhor que o Reino Unido para aprender Business e ao mesmo tempo ganhar uma experiência internacional inigualável? As universidades Britânicas atraem milhares de estudantes internacionais todos os anos, graças à sua capacidade de combinar uma educação de alta qualidade com uma vida social enriquecedora.

UEA é o lugar perfeito para se estudar graças a uma estrutura mega moderna e professores/funcionários extremamente prestativos, unida á uma vida social agitada. Norwich, é uma cidade super interessante, capaz de unir sem esforço construções medievais com lojas famosas e eventos.

Ser um aluno internacional pode ser ao mesmo tempo excitante e assustador. Se mudar para o outro lado do mundo pode ser bem difícil para muitos, especialmente se você está acostumado com o calor brasileiro, tanto do povo quanto do clima. A universidade sabe disso e tem um time internacional voltado a dar suporte à qualquer estudante durante todo o processo. Nosso time de Ambassadors é formado por alunos da UEA, de diversos países, que se dedicam à ajudar com qualquer problema/responder qualquer pergunta.

Então, se você tiver qualquer dúvida não hesite em me perguntar! Fique á vontade para me contatar via Facebook ou envie um e-mail para

MBA Strategic Carbon Management

I am Jose Zloccowick and I studied for an MBA in Strategic Carbon Management. Two key reasons underlined my decision to apply to UEA. Firstly, the reputation the university has for its Environmental Sciences' research and teaching. Secondly, the unique approach of the intricate relationship between business and environment provided by the MBA.

Since the application period I noticed the high level of commitment of the university with their students. All my emails were quickly replied and the application process was easily understandable. Once I arrived I noticed that it would be a fabulous journey. I had one week of course induction which showed and explained how the university facilities and systems work.

The availability of UEA community is an asset of the university. All the lecturers, coordinators and staff that I contacted were very accessible and supportive. All the guidance that you need with course works, language issues and even job applications are offered by UEA. This support not only makes you feel welcome but also encourages you to develop further studies and to engage into new challenges.

Hobbies and social life are also an important part of students' life at UEA. Through the several societies and clubs offered by the Student Union, the student can find what best suits him/her. These clubs and societies cover all sorts of interests, from sports and country-specific societies to topic-specific clubs such as politics and environmental issues. Last year I travelled with the UEA Surf Club and I not only had a lovely experience but also met new friends.

The life in Norwich is perfect for university students. This medium-size city offers as much entertainment as any big city but with the advantage of a walking distance between them. If you are living on Campus you barely need to go out as you can find all the facilities such as Shops, Bank, Medical centre, Sports Park, Cafe and Pub. Living off Campus is not a challenge as buses to UEA are available almost every 5 min from the Rail Station. Norwich city centre is charming and full of historical attractions, restaurants and pubs. It is very handy for relaxing after long days of study and hard working.

Hello! My name is Caio Biasoli, student of the undergraduate course of International Relations at UEA. I have chosen this course at UEA because it would undoubtedly offer me advantageous academic foundation and distinctive access to knowledge in an area I am passionate about. And I am most certainly not disappointed.

It is well known that the decision to live abroad is a hard one. Language, culture and customs can be a barrier and the adaptation process can be scary. However, unlike most academic institutions, UEA has proved itself to be a capable, unique and welcoming university. 

The city of Norwich has also proven to be an incredible city, not just beautiful but down right rich in culture, history and life! It is one of the safest city in the UK, and it has everything that a student life would require.

This all guarantees that your chosen course will be academically, socially and culturally delivered in an excellent standard. A complete fundamental structure which I can trust and rely on was the first and foremost factor for me when deciding to invest part of my life in studying abroad. 

UEA has given me fundamental support as an international student in addition to its evident academic excellence. No other characteristics would be more important to reassure myself that eventually my efforts will not be in vain.

Hello! I’m Marina Azaneu. I’m a PhD student at the School of Environmental Sciences here at UEA. I have a Sciences without Borders scholarship and I’m just starting the second year of my PhD. I am a physical oceanographer and I’m studying some of the dynamical properties of the coastal currents in the north Weddell Sea (Antarctica). I use a relatively new technology called seagliders to collect my data, which are autonomous vehicles controlled remotely by satellites.

I decided to come to UEA because of my supervisor and her research interests. Also, I was aware of the excellence and international influence of the UEA School of Environmental Sciences. I can tell that I’m very happy with my choice. Not only the facilities available at the university are great, but you can feel that the university staff is there for you.

So far I had many great opportunities to improve my knowledge, meet important researchers, join training courses and participate of international meetings. I could also visit UEA research partners (e.g. British Antarctic Survey) and participate in some of their activities. I’ve learned and improved myself as a researcher incredibly with all these experiences.

Besides the work environment, the UEA campus is also a nice place to be. A walk by the lake, a lunch on garden, or a cultural coffee in the Art Centre. You have many ways to enjoy yourself. I love practicing sports, and most of my extra time I spend at the sports centre. A yoga class in the beginning of the morning, climbing in the afternoon or a badminton session with other postgrads  by the end of the day. There are many things you can practice when you get tired of doing science!

Another important thing about studying at UEA is Norwich, a fine city, as it is known. I really like living in Norwich. I come from a big city in Brazil, and I thought could be difficult to adapt to a smaller one. But it was not a problem at all. The city is incredibly charming, people are very nice, and you can find many cultural attractions to entertain yourself. Particularly, I really enjoy walking around the street market on a sunny afternoon or, in a colder day, a tasty cake with coffee in one of the lovely bakeries in town. During summer, kayaking on the Broads is always a great day out.

I feel very welcome here and I believe this is must be everyone’s feeling!

I took the MSc in Climate Change and International Development at UEA in 2012/13. My choice was mostly based on UEA reputation for Climate Change and DEV, especially its connection with the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research. The experience in UEA surpassed all my expectations both personally and academically. Professors are really, really accessible and always happy to give you personal attention in whatever you may need. The Careers Centre is incredibly useful. They offer services like coaching, mentoring and one-to-one sessions. Besides, Norwich is a great city to live. Everything you may need is in a walking or cycling distance. I would recommend UEA to any Brazilian looking for a complete change in educational system mindset and a great British experience.

During the course, I was under the Chevening Scholarships programme. Chevening Scholarships are the UK government’s global scholarship programme, funded by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) and partner organisations. The programme makes awards to outstanding scholars with leadership potential from around the world to study postgraduate courses at UK universities. It runs annually and besides covering tuition fees, flights costs and a monthly stipend, the student becomes part of a global network of scholars. I would deeply encourage Brazilians planning to study at UEA to apply for it (

 I am Jonathan Macedo, a MSc student in Applied Ecology and Conservation, part of the Erasmus Mundus European Master in Applied Ecology. I decided to come to UEA because of the state-of-the art research that is done here in Conservation and Development science.

From the very beginning I felt welcomed and well supported. Our course coordinators here, Prof. Mark Hassall and Aldina Franco, are always looking after each student to make sure all is being provided. To find professors that have a sincere concern not only with my grades but also with my well-being is something I did not expect – in Brazil the student-teacher respect translates into a more distant relationship – and this has been very important for me in a place where I arrived without knowing anybody.

The doors that the UEA opens for you are amazing. Some of the leading scientists are ‘just along the corridor' and are always available for a chat, and quite often you will hear them say: ‘Well, if you are really interested in this, just come talk to me and we can discuss some kind of project'. To make it even more exciting, every week there are talks with renowned guests in the scientific community. It is a very inspirational environment for a young scientist.

I knew that academically I was coming to a very high standard university, and it is truly so, but I did not imagine I would also have such a pleasant time here. Now when I go back to Brazil I know that I will be taking back with me not only a degree but also an idea of how a university should be.

Alongside all this, the city of Norwich is very nice. It is a medium-size city, not much traffic, noise or pollution and still offers many recreational options. The people here are into sports, so it was very easy for me to find a group to play some football with. There are plenty restaurants and pubs to enjoy the night time, and I must say the ones in the city center are especially charming amongst the old churches. If you are keen on outdoor activities, the countryside here can offer some spectacular sights, such as the Norfolk Broads. Norwich is a lovely place which I would like to visit even if I did not have to study here, so I'm glad I do.

The University of East Anglia can be found in the suburbs of the charming Anglican market town of Norwich.  With its own lake, where only the brave dare to swim, and a regular bus service to the town centre, the campus provides a perfect mix of accessibility to local amenities and separation from the bustling city centre.       

Studying at UEA has been like no other experience so far.  At UEA you are not just a student, you are part of a community.  Upon arrival I instantly felt at ease.  Providing all of the facilities a student could want, from a vast library, food and bookshops, banks, clubs and more, it was easy to settle in to student life both socially and academically.

I was daunted by the prospect of studying in a foreign language, and so my first year was spent at INTO, a facility and course dedicated to the integration and preparation of foreign students for progression to degree level studies at UEA.  I made lots of close friends here, some of which I am still studying with.

The undergraduate degree in Accounting and Finance that I am now doing at UEA has been very enjoyable.  The material itself has been demanding, however, there has always been plenty of support and assistance whenever needed through the help of a personal advisor.  Professors are responsive to questions and will always help wherever possible.   There is a real sense of camaraderie within the various classes and I have surrounded myself with good friends, with whom I spend a lot of time discussing assignments and helping each other out. 

Aside from the academic side to student life, there are numerous clubs and societies to join.  Following my Brazilian heritage, I have taken part in the Handball, Volleyball and Football clubs – however, there are plenty for the more adventurous.  From archery to sailing and debating to chess, there will be something for everyone.  Finally, if you feel that your interests are not well represented, you always have the option of starting your own club!

I am thoroughly enjoying my time at UEA.  Norwich is brimming full of entertainment for all types – be you a historian or a socialite.

PhD Political, Social and International Studies

Studying at UEA is an experience that goes beyond the classes, lectures and seminars. I am doing a post-graduate research in the School of Political, Social and International (PSI) studies and I can tell you that it has been a terrific experience so far.

You are up to date about your studies area, no matter what it is. The teachers are aware of the latest studies and they are ready to help you to get the knowledge you need. Besides, the Library has eight hundred thousand books and full access to an extensive range of academic journals – which is really helpful when you have to write a thesis or study for your examinations.

The University also provides all support you need to have a good time. The Dean of Students has a team ready to deal with academic and even personal problems. The Union of Students also has an advice and counselling centre that can help you to live here. If you have any religious belief, the Chaplaincy is another place where you can find help and encouragement.

However, your academic life can go beyond this. There is always something happening: public lectures, group discussions, free movies and debates on many subjects, theatre plays and so on. You have only to be aware, take a look on the posters to know what is going on and choose what you want to do. The best part: if you do not want to go anywhere, you can have a walk around the lake and relax.

Finally, Norwich is a calm and quiet city with more than a thousand years of history. The city mix this past with all the modern resources and services you need, from cinemas and clubs to malls and supermarkets. And, for those who like it, a lot of mediaeval treasures to discover. People are very friendly and they are ready to help you. I was told that Norwich has 52 churches and 365 pubs – one for each day of the year. I am still trying to see if it is true. Cheers!
