Canadian Student Ambassador
Hi! My name is Fionnuala Sherbot and I’m a second year medical student at UEA. I chose to study at UEA because of the clinical focused approach the MBBS program offers and the value UEA places on student satisfaction and support; creating a top-ranked university where students are encouraged to excel both academically and socially!
As an international student, there are so many support systems available to you, all with the aim of helping you achieve and succeed. Between the ISAT (International Student Advisory Team), Student Support Services, and your seminar leaders and lecturers, there will always be someone to answer questions, help solve problems or offer advice. The university also has a personal advisor scheme for the entirety of your course, a program unique to UEA. This is a senior member of staff who is able to meet with you regularly throughout the year and is there to offer academic, professional and personal advice, guidance and support.
UEA provides so many unique chances for students to explore their interests both within and outside their timetables. I am constantly being invited to participate in conferences, additional training courses, career talks, volunteering and more! I'm able to choose my level of involvement and never run out of opportunities to learn.
The scenic lake, greenery and (most importantly) the bunnies made UEA's award winning campus a beautiful place to call home for my first year. My flatmates felt like family and I met so many new people and made so many new friends (something everyone is nervous about before university - don’t worry!). Now in my second year, I'm equally happy having moved into a house off campus and continue to explore Norwich in a new way.
UEA is known for having a ridiculous amount (200+) societies and clubs to join, so there’s always something happening, and if we don't have it yet? Students are encouraged to create new ones through our Student Union. When you need a break, a short walk, bus or cycle gets you straight into the city – a quirky and historic place full of character and a friendly atmosphere. Norwich has a pedestrian only downtown full of shops, cafes (I’m still on the search for the best cappuccino) and delicious restaurants and is always a nice break from school.
Being so far away from home (7529km!) is definitely intimidating, but living in such a safe and friendly city, and studying on a campus that feels comfortable and supportive has given me the best experience. Deciding to study at UEA was one of the best decisions of my life, and I’m so excited to call Norwich my home for the next 5 years.
