Hi, my name is Sarah and I am a second year History student at UEA.  I have always been interested in British history, so when I started university I knew it was what I wanted to study.  In Canada I am doing a double major in British History and Medieval Studies, so when I decided to go on a year abroad UEA was obviously the perfect place, because with all of its churches and early architecture, Norwich itself is considered a medieval city. 

UEA is well known for its amazing history program, and I wanted to study at the best place possible.  There are so many options when it comes to picking your modules whether it’s in your department, or if you want to try something a little different.  You can learn about anythings from the “Rise and Fall of British Power” to “Witchcraft and Magical belief in Early Modern Europe”. Many of the history modules also take you on field trips into Norwich to explore the medieval cathedrals and other historic sites, which is an amazing experience.

One of my favourite things about UEA is its campus.  It has such an amazing landscape and atmosphere, with beautiful natural areas like the lake, as well as common spaces.  One of my favourite things to do in between classes is to just sit in the Square and read a book or meet up with some friends.  Being so far away from your family and friends can definitely be intimidating sometimes, but having a campus that feels comfortable, and like home can really change your entire experience.  That is probably my favourite thing about UEA, feeling at home, even though I am 7557km across the world.

Being an international student as UEA has been one of the best things that I have ever decided to do, academic or otherwise.  It has opened up so much opportunities for me and introduced me to so many amazing people from all over the world that I never would have met.
