Bulgarian Student Ambassador 

Hello! I’m Dian Atamyanov, and I’m a 3rd year undergraduate doing Media Studies at the University of East Anglia.When I was looking for a university, I aimed for one that offered me up-to-date education and practical knowledge in my field.

UEA definitely exceeded my expectations, especially with its high-end facilities and wide range of industry relations, which truly earns the university’s spot among the best in the UK. Film and Media courses in particular are perhaps the best in the country. The campus is equipped with professional studios, which give the opportunity to develop a variety of practical skills in all forms of media ranging from print and radio to film and television. Moreover, the teachers here are well respected academics and are devoted to each of us regardless of what problems we may face.


For those who wish to get a head start and develop industry connections, the university provides a means for every student to get hands-on experience with work placements and internships available all throughout the year.

However, UEA has much, much more to offer than that. We Bulgarians value a good nightlife, and this university does not disappoint. There’s always something going on in and around campus, whether it’s a gig, some club’s social event or just a party. Aside from that, the university also has several cafes and bars where you can shoot some pool, play some foosball or just have a drink with friends. There’s a lot of everything for everyone!

It doesn’t stop there, though, as we pride ourselves on UEA’s international environment and we strive to promote student diversity. Events such as ‘Go Global’ bring people from many backgrounds together to appreciate each other’s differences and similarities and widen their perspective on the world.

Overall, this university has given me fantastic experiences and great opportunities to show others what our rich culture has to offer. The Bulgarian community here is growing each year, and we’re working hard to make our presence positively recognized. Choosing to study here is without a doubt the best choice I’ve ever made.

If you’re interested to know more about the University of East Anglia or have any questions about studying and living here, feel free to contact me via email at European.ambassadors@uea.ac.uk or message me on my facebook page above.



Здравейте! Aз съм Диан Атамянов, 3-та година студент записал Медийно обучение в Източноанглийският универистет.

Когато търсех университет, се целях към някой, който да ми предостави достъпно и практическо обучение. Този университет наистина надмина очакванията ми, най-вече с висококласните му факултети и добрите му връзки с индустрията, които заслужено го поставят до най-добрите университети във Великобритания. Относно медийното обучение, специалностите в областта на киното и медийте са може би най-добрите в държавата. Кампусът е оборудван с професионални студиа, които предоставят възможността за пространно развитие във всички видове медий - от вестници и радио до кино и телевизия. Също така, учителите тук са добре уважавани и са отдадени на всеки от нас независимо от трудностите ни. За тези, които искат да са с един крак напред в нещата и да завържат отношения в професионален план, университетът дава възможност на всеки да набере чрез работни програми и стажанства достъпни през цялата година.

Но университетът предлага много, много повече. Ние българите ценим нощния живот и тук няма да се разочароваме. Винаги има какво да се прави в и около кампуса, било то концерт, социално събитие на някой клуб или просто купон. Освен това, на място има няколко кафета и барове, където можеш да поиграеш билиард, малко джаги или просто да пийнеш с приятели измежду хора дошли от целия свят. Има по много от всичко за всеки!

Не на последно място ние се гордеем с международната обстановка в университета и се целим да развием разнообразието от студенти. Събития като “Go Global” събират хора от всякакъв произход, за да оценят различията и сходностите си и да разширят погледа си над света.

Като цяло имам страхотни преживявания тук, но най-вече ми се дава възможността да покажа на други какво предлага нашата богата култура. Българското общество тук расте всяка година и ние се стараем да се знае нашето присъствие. Да избера да уча тук е без съмнение най-добрият избор, който някога съм правил.

Ако се интересувате от Университета в Източна Англия или имате някакви въпроси относо обучението и престоя тук, свържете се с мен чрез имейл на European.ambassadors@uea.ac.uk или на страницата ми във Фейсбук по-горе.

Bulgaria: Alexander - Law - Erasmus

My name is Alexander Goutsev, a final year graduate Erasmus student studying law. I am very happy that you have shown interest in the UEA and I can assure you that you have made an excellent choice. It seems like yesterday when I was going around University fairs trying to get all the information I could, wondering what would be the best choice to make. 

Things turned out in such a way, that I ended up studying law in France. Since the beginning of my law degree I have always wanted to do a year abroad in the United Kingdom and more specifically in England. Getting the chance to exchange cultures and gain experience is one of the most magnificent academic opportunities that the European Union provides for its millions of students. I had done some previous research on UEA and on Norwich in general and at that time it seemed like the most suitable place for my Erasmus programme. I had heard that the campus is magnificent, that the law school is reputable and that the University is highly ranked amongst UK and European Universities. I had big expectations, and the truth is that the reality surpassed them!

Having already had experience in another leading European University (the University of Strasbourg), I have the base to make a comparison and to objectively evaluate the quality and the level of studies and life in UEA and Norwich. Our university has a beautiful campus with various facilities and amenities, as you shall hopefully see for yourself. Norwich, on the other hand, is a fantastic city of considerable historical value; it is very calm and is officially the city with the lowest crime rate in England. I am sure that you will have some of the best moments of your life, whilst receiving a top-quality education here.

You can also contact Vilyana, our Bulgarian student ambassador, to ask about life at UEA.
