Brunei Student Ambassador

Hi everyone, my name is Christopher Richardson, and I’m a 3rd year BEng Energy Engineering student. I grew up and studied in Malaysia all the way up to A-Levels before deciding that I wanted to see more of what the world had to offer. I ended up choosing to study at UEA for many reasons; the eye-catching architecture, the great reviews and rankings, as well as the good scholarship opportunities available at the university.

Two and a half years later, I can honestly say that studying overseas has been a profound experience. The maturity and independence that comes with living in a whole new part of the world is invaluable, as are the friends and fun times I’ve had.

UEA places a lot of importance on student satisfaction and wellbeing, with designated advisors, the option to schedule meetings with lecturers outside classes, and even designated wardens to help with on-campus accommodation. The Career Central on campus is also a brilliant place for students to keep up to date with jobs both on and off campus, and me and many of my friends have gotten jobs and internships there. There are also a bunch of different ways to enrich your university life on campus. As a casual swimmer, I most enjoy the Olympic-sized pool in the Sports Park and have headed there for an after-class swim on many an occasion.

One of the best things about being at UEA is living so close to the city of Norwich. It’s a 20-minute bus ride away, and it happens to be a really a nice place to spend the weekend. Personally, I enjoy the fact that while it does have plenty of things to do and see, it never feels too large or foreboding, making navigation especially easy for students who are new to Norwich and the UK. Being away from home as an international student is never the easiest thing to do, but with the right environment and support, it can honestly be a wonderful few years.

Brunei: Karen - English Literature and Drama

Hey! I’m Karen Lee and I’m currently a third year English Literature and Drama student in UEA. 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. 

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.
