Brunei Student Ambassador
Hey! I’m Karen Lee and I’m currently a third year English Literature and Drama student in UEA. I am also the Student Ambassador for Brunei which means I’m the person to talk to/ look for if you’re having any difficulties or troubles. I chose UEA for its excellence in my course. The drama course here is ranked second in the UK and the combined degree allows me to be flexible with my modules. As a fellow Bruneian student, I understand how rankings tend to play a fairly big part in choosing a university. Well, UEA is in the top 15 universities in the UK and just recently has made it into the top 150 universities in the world.
When I first arrived UEA, it reminded me very much of Brunei with its green scenery and peaceful atmosphere. Norwich itself is an extremely safe city, in fact one of the safest city in the UK! Living in a safe place is definitely a standout point for me when it comes to choosing my university. UEA is a campus based university and hence all the different ‘schools’ are at one place. I prefer a campus university as I think it really promotes a sense of community as you’ll be able to meet students from other schools. In addition, everything you need for university is easily obtainable on campus ranging from stationery to laundry and meals.
UEA has a great support system for the students studying here. They have workshops every now and then to help with students struggling to write academic essays. At the same time, each student is assigned a tutor that will help with any problems. Not only that, the Teaching Office, Dean’ of Student’s office will all be able to help with students in need.
There is a plethora of societies that students can join in the university, from sports to cultural societies. I find that joining societies is a great way to meet more people and learn some new things. As a fitness enthusiast, I find that the Sportspark is a remarkable indoor sports centre with excellent facilities at hand such as the Olympic sized pool and a well-furnished gym.
In my first year, I stayed at a university accommodation which I fully recommend everyone to do so. Living on campus meant that it was extremely easy getting to classes. Going to university for the first time in a foreign country can feel very daunting to many and personally speaking, staying on campus and meeting other fellow first years will really ease the process of settling down. At the same time, being on campus meant that I didn’t have to deal with sorting out utilities bills like one normally would have to, if living off campus.
The city of Norwich is a great city to live in. Many indie cafes and shops line the alleyways of Norwich. I find that the city is a fusion of Old England and Modern England. The Norwich castle has been around since medieval times and the cathedral is over 900 years old. However, Norwich also has its share of modern malls and shops which makes it a great place to dine and shop as well as appreciate its rich history.
All in all, my two years in UEA has been amazing and already I am feeling sad that I only have a year left here. UEA and Norwich has a lot to offer to the students and I can’t imagine studying elsewhere.

My name is Amilin Omar and I am currently studying Business Management in UEA. I am a third year student under the Norwich Business School (NBS) and this university provides a wide range of courses for undergraduates and postgraduates.
The first element that made me decide when choosing this university was its campus environment. It was very convenient for me to get to lectures and seminars, as the buildings are located in one big campus. UEA is a campus-based university and I was impressed with its amazing facilities available to the students. UEA is ranked in the top 20 on The Times Good University Guide 2012 and this shows that UEA has one of the best teaching qualities in the UK. The student union in UEA plays a big role as it provides support to students and helps you settle in the university quickly.
Student facilities such as banks, bookstore and restaurants are available for students on the campus itself. This makes the lives of students much more convenient as they are just within walking distances. The selection of books in the 6-floor library is amazing and exceeds your expectation.

The train tickets are affordable which makes it convenient for students to travel around. Norwich is a beautiful place to live in and UEA is only a 15-minute bus ride from the city centre. Based on personal experience, the shopping and living experience here are remarkable.

Living on-campus in your first year will be a good experience, as you will get to make new friends from all over the world. Staying in the various types of on-campus accommodation will provide you with free, unlimited broadband access, which you do not have to worry about when coming here.

The library provides the best books and research materials for students to use and for me, the library is my second home! The UEA sports centre is one of the best sports centre in the UK as it provides almost every sports you can think of, including rock climbing, aerobics and archery. The square, which is located in the heart of UEA, is a place where students socialise with each other.

Hello! I am Liyana, an undergraduate student in third year of studying Media and Politics as well as the present International Student Ambassador representing the country of Brunei at UEA. I chose UEA because it was my first pick out of a bowl of universities that offer a course that I was looking for that is in the field of media along with politics. When I was born television was the cutting-edge medium, films and shows have been influential throughout my life like growing up, my sense of humor was shaped by The Simpsons series and Adam Saddler movies. It is a vehicle to express one’s ideologies, politics and philosophies. For these reasons, I wanted to understand in depth the way in which media is produced and consumed with the right studies and guidance of a faculty at university level. UEA shows a quality of value with admirable reputation from its teaching and academic support to its fantastic social life that make me decide to study at UEA.

The university is ideal where you can find all facilities a student requires such as shops, food outlets, bank, bookshop, post office and every week, night life Tuesdays and Saturdays at LCR are always a hit. It is all very convenient as everything is within walking distance. One of the unique features in campus is “the square”, it is an outdoor meeting place for students to socialize and relax.
