Chinese Student Ambassador

Hi guys! I am Rong Xia, an undergraduate student in Norwich Business School (NBS) of UEA. My major is Accounting & Management, and this is my second year here.

I still remember my expectation and anxiety when I first came to the UK, but now I can calmly deal with my life and study, I never regretted a moment during this time, as I gradually realized why the students’ satisfaction of UEA always ranks among the top three or even first in the UK. The school has been ranking among the top 20 universities in the UK and top 200 universities in the world for many years, while the majors of climate research and media are even in a leading position in the UK. The teaching mode combining lectures and seminars, separately allocated advisors, International Office and Career Centre are high-quality general supports and resources that the school offers its students.

The school is close to a park which once hosted Europe’s largest open-air music festival(BBC-Radio 1’ s Big Weekend). With green trees, fresh flowers, lovely rabbits and quiet artificial lake on campus, the environment is really beautiful. And the exquisite teaching buildings, SCVA where “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” was shot and 24-hour library are powerful hardware resources of the school.

Apart from study, various societies and activities are precious wealth that UEA offers us. I joined many societies when I was a freshman. I not only competed in Blackpool with my friends from “Dance Sports”, but also gave performances on the Spring Festival with CSSA(Chinese Students And Scholars Association). These experiences enriched my life and helped me make friends from different countries, which has greatly broadened my horizon.

Of course, as a Chinese student far away from home with English as a foreign language, I greatly desire care and warmth from the foreign land. Fortunately, Norwich did it, the ancient city has great charm and famous cathedrals; she is also fashionable and exquisite as one of Europe’s top 10 shopping cities; although she is small, everything is convenient here, she has her own railway station (two hours to London) and airport; she is quiet and safe with the kind and friendly residents.

More about the city and the school are waiting for you to come and explore.  Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions via the social media links above or by email: chinesestudents@uea.ac.uk

 

大家好,欢迎你来到UEA中国学生大使的页面。我的姓名是夏瑢,是一名正就读于UEA NBS(诺里奇商学院)的大二学生,我的专业是Accounting & Management(会计与管理)。

还记得初来英国时内心的憧憬和不安,直到如今可以悦然微笑地坦然生活和学习,在UEA的这些美好的时光里从未有一刻感到后悔——我越来越能体到为什么UEA 的学生满意度一直是全英前三甚至第一了。学校近几年的综合排名一直是全英前20,世界前200,其中气候研究和传媒等专业更是居于英国领先地位。Lecture和Seminar相结合的授课方式,单独配给的Advisor, 国际办公室,Career Centre等,都是学校在学习和生活中给予学生全面高质的帮助和资源。

学校邻近一座举办过欧洲最大露天音乐节的公园,校内绿木鲜花兔子清湖,环境美到令人不禁扼腕长叹。而精雅高质的教学楼,拍摄过《复仇者联盟2》的SCVA和24小时开放的图书馆,是学校令人赞叹不已的硬件资源。

除却学习时间,各种各样的社团和令人目不暇接的活动都是UEA提供给我们的宝贵财富。我在大一的时候参加了很多社团,曾跟着Dance Sports的朋友们去黑池参加了比赛,也曾在中国学联举办的诸如春晚等活动中参演。这些经历丰富了我的生活,也让我结识了来自世界各地的朋友们,我的眼界也由此更为开阔。

当然,作为一个中国学生,一个以英语为外语的学生,背井离乡远泊他乡,我最渴望的莫过于来自异乡的关爱和温暖。然而诺里奇这座城做到了,她厚重古老,有着著名的大教堂;却也时尚精致,是欧洲十大购物城市之一;她虽小,却五脏俱全,有自己的火车站(两小时到伦敦)和机场;她安静,安全,养育着无比友好善良的居民……

更多关于这座城和这座学校的美好,还等着你亲自来这里探索,如果你有任何问题,可以通过以下方式找到我:chinesestudents@uea.ac.uk

MA Media, Culture and Society (with Pre-Sessional English)

I’m Shuo Tang, studying MA Media, Culture and Society at UEA. Before I started my master degree at UEA, I attended pre-sessional English course for an 8-week period at INTO UEA. Overall, I consider pre-sessional English course to be a great starting point and transition period for international students studying in the UK.

After coming to the UK, I have realised that there are some differences regarding teaching and learning in higher education between China and the UK, especially in the following two ways. This first difference is regarding teaching and assessment. For example, before coming here, I was not familiar with even the most common ways of assessment such as essays and presentations. I did not know much about referencing in essays, and I was not sure about how to prepare for a presentation and how to deliver one. However, my tutor from pre-sessional English course helped me to get prepared for all these. From essay plans to literature survey, from writing styles to referencing, I was thoroughly guided.

The second difference is that the UK high education appears to attach more weight on learning with initiatives and learning independently. I was encouraged to build up the ability to learn actively and to think critically during pre-sessional English course.

My tutor at INTO is Denise. He is strict and demanding as a teacher, but also very caring.  During our time preparing for end-of-term essays, he made sure that each of us had the chance to discuss with him on a one-to-one basis. 

Pre-sessional English course takes place inside the INTO building on UEA campus, which also means that one can get to know more about UEA and adapt to studying life here at an early stage. While studying at INTO, I could take advantages of resources available on UEA campus including accesses to library and Sportspark, just like a UEA student. Furthermore, I gradually became familiar with the city Norwich and got used to the life style here. All these have helped me get well prepared for my master degree.

Overall, I would suggest everyone who has the option, even those with a decent IELTS score, to attend INTO pre-sessional English course and to take full advantage of it.

 

我是唐硕,目前在UEA攻读研究生学位Media,Culture and Society专业。在进入UEA之前,我在INTO语言中心读了8周的学位预备英语课程。整体来说,我觉得语言课程对于我们留学生是一个特别好的过渡和衔接。

到了英国之后我发现国内大学和英国大学的教学方式是有差异的,我认为主要体现在以下两点:一是,平时上课和作业的方式不一样。比如说,在来英国以前,我们不知道要如何着手去写一篇essay,不知道怎么写references,甚至不是特别了解要如何去准备presentation以及怎么准确地去present,而这些是英国大学里最基本的作业形式。语言课程的老师会非常详细地教你这些内容,从一开始的论文规划,如何查阅资料,如何利用文章引用以及正确书写引用格式等等。

二是,英国大学学习更考验学生的自主学习和独立性。语言课程的老师也更注重培养我们的自我学习能力和批判性思维(critical thinking) 的思考方式。

我的INTO老师叫Denise,他是一位非常严厉的老师,对我们要求很高,不过他也很照顾我们。我记得在准备语言课程期末论文的时候,Denise老师要求我们班上每位同学都必须跟他预约时间,进行一对一的讨论。

另外,我们的语言课程基本都是在INTO语言中心大楼完成的,而INTO语言中心又坐落在UEA校园里,所以我们能很迅速地了解UEA的环境。语言课程期间,我们也是基本上可以享用UEA所有的资源,包括图书馆,sportspark等等。同时我们也利用这段时间熟悉了Norwich这座城市的环境和生活节奏,为正式的研究生学习做好了充足的准备。

所以即使有些同学国内考的雅思成绩还是不错的,我都建议大家在条件允许的情况下,选择读语言课程去提前了解和适应这里的学习和生活。

Lei Deng

MSc Marketing (with Pre-Sessional English)

I am Lei Deng, studying MSc Marketing at Norwich Business School. I had a 12-week pre-sessional English course at INTO before I started my master degree at UEA. I found pre-sessional English course helpful in terms of improving my English language skills, as well as preparing myself for academic studies later on.

Pre-sessional English course usually takes the form of small study groups. There were 17 students in my group. I was able to smoothly blend in the atmosphere of group study, whilst receive sufficient attention, guidance and care from my tutors Mike and Jeanne who cared about everyone else just in the same way.

Pre-sessional English course covers listening, speaking, reading and writing of English. My classes ran for four hours every weekday. One tutor taught listening and speaking classes while the other taught reading and writing, so the specialization was clear. Teaching and learning materials were also supposed to be closely related to academic study afterwards. A typical listening class would involve note-taking whilst listening/watching TED videos in which speakers delivered speeches in a reasonable pace. Another learning activity that appeared to help prepare me for master study was seminar discussion. In groups of four, we were required to discuss around assigned topics for a limited time period. Tutors observed us sharing ideas and thoughts, based on which they provided us with comments and feedback. I was also very carefully guided through the process of writing an academic essay.

Pre-sessional English course helped to boost my confidence and at the end of it, I very much looked forward to enjoying my master study. Whilst taking this course, I had the time to get settled before engaging in busy academic study. Even after the end of the course, we continue to gather together with group mates and tutors like a big family. Some groups went to Broads, some groups had students visited their tutor’s house, and some groups had BBQ by UEA lake.

 

我是邓蕾,目前在读NBS商学院Marketing专业。进入UEA以前,我读了12周的学位预备英语课程。我认为预备英语课程不仅仅是帮助我们提高语言水平,还能提前帮助我们了解专业相关的内容,并且熟悉和适应这里大学上课的方式。

语言班上课都是小班化,我们班一共有17个人。小班化的教学可以让班上每位同学都能彻底地融入到课堂之中,也能够让老师照顾到每位同学。感觉我当时的老师Mike和Jeanne对我们班每位同学都是了如指掌。

语言课程的内容分为听说读写,一周5天,每天要上课4个小时。我们班是由两位老师负责,一位老师负责读和写,另一位老师负责听和说,针对性很强,听说读写的内容也跟研究生专业的关联很紧密。在listening的课堂上,老师会选择播放一些与大学课堂上老师授课语速贴近的Ted视频,然后让我们做笔记;我们有模拟seminar,班上的同学被分成4人一组,老师在seminar之前给一个topic,然后4个人围绕这个主题限时讨论,老师会旁听,模拟seminar结束之后再给我们每个人的讨论表现做点评;老师会非常详细地教我们如何去完成一篇学术论文。其实这些课程内容,都在为我们现在的研究生学习做了很好的铺垫。

语言课结束后,我对接下来的研究生学习充满了期待和信心。同时,我也利用这段时间努力去适应这里的生活,生活方面的问题在正式开学前都基本得到了解决。语言班还有个不成文的规定,就是结课后,老师和学生会有个集体活动。有的班级选择到Broads玩,有的老师会把学生请到自己家里做客,还有的班级会在UEA湖边BBQ。我们就是一个大家庭!

MA Media Culture and Society

I'm Chen who comes from Shanghai. I studied media, culture and society, which is one-year master course at UEA. I am so glad that I became a member of students here. The reason I decided to choose this media course as my main major in PSI faculty is because media studies gains very good reputation and awards very top ranking all around the universities of UK. Here I am going to share some my own experience at UEA.

UEA is located at Norwich at where is the greenest city in UK. The environment makes me feel comfortable and peaceful, so for personal thinking that this is the ideal place to live and finish my master degree. Media faculty is one of the most outstanding faculties in UEA. As a media course student, I have been taught a series of lectures from different faculties' professors. Because the course is separated into 5 specific aspects of media, which including law, policy, economic, film studies and media discourse. The advantages of that is it makes me not only stand by a single level of how media looks like, but also helps me to deep understand the whole systems of running media. Especially, discussing the western issues in media field, which I am so appreciated to know that as a Chinese, I found more interesting about comparing the difference about media systems between China and Western. In addition to these excellent academic knowledge taught, I've also got chance to practice those theories in real, that makes me feel more useful and activities. Following this course strategy, I have got a great opportunity to work for both BBC Voice and Norwich local media group - Epic studio as a trainee journalist. During that course, I have learnt how to produce a piece of news and as the result my news was released on public as regular news. Moreover, students who belongs to PSI could choose any other relevant courses to assist this big subject and to help them understanding media better and more precise.
Last but not the least, I want to mention at there is that media faculty has offered massively internship opportunities for their students. And for International students, UEA meanwhile, set one special session to teach us how to competitive with home students.
 
Yuhang Li (Tony)

MSc Accounting and Financial Management

Hi, I am Yuhang Li or Tony for short. I was a postgraduate student of Norwich Business School. I chose UEA as the best choice among all my offers and came here with great pleasure. I definitely made the right decision!

UEA is a bustling university on the east coast of England, well-known for its world leading research on climate change and the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts.  A lush green campus next to Earlham Park and just 15 minutes by bus from the city centre make this a great place to study and live in.

My major was International Accounting and Financial Management and I gained a deeper understanding of my subjects through diverse teaching methods. Lectures are state-of-the-art, focusing on the latest issues happening around the globe and combining handouts with practicals. The seminars are delivered to small groups providing you with a great opportunity to interact with your tutors and classmates and making sure that you play an active part in your learning. You can choose from a range of options from the business studies courses. The course leader was a tutor at Cambridge University and taught in world leading financial training institutions for decades.  She helped me a lot and gave me greater confidence for taking the ACCA exams.

UEA has various kinds of societies and clubs like Debating Society, Red Cross and Water Aid, offering students many inspiring activities and promoting the integration of international students into the University.  Other events around campus enable us to make new friends from all over the world and to find out more about local culture.

The campus provides students with all the services they could need.  The library is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with plenty of space for studying and an impressive range of resources.  Other facilities, including a medical centre and an accommodation office, are also very helpful.

Living on campus is also a fantastic experience. UEA provides you with at least eight types of different accommodation to choose from.  As our supporting team works around the clock, your campus living will be safe and comfortable. If you want to live off campus, UEA will be able to present you with other options to choose from.

UEA is a UK top 15 university (ranked 14th in the Guardian University Guide) and, I think, a fantastic choice to prepare you for your future career.  

Mengxi

MSc Media Economics

Hello, I am Mengxi and I am doing my Master degree in Media Economics, last summer I have just graduated from UEA in Society, Culture and Media as my undergraduate degree which I thoroughly enjoy. Many UEA students/graduates have their own key words to describe our beloved university, my one would be fascinating.

Three and half years ago, I came to Norwich to study in UEA because of its good academic reputation especially in the major of Media and Culture study, and the 3 years study experience has made me so proud to be an student made by UEA. The course has not only taught me the valuable knowledge, but also it helped me found the things I wanted to experience, broadened my view and offered me a great deal of life experience. For example, I did internships in the local radio station which I learned so much from and totally loved.

UEA has the kind of campus that you will fall in love as soon as you walk through, it has the amazing broad view of a on campus lake; a forest in which I often take a walk in the morning; a wide range of accommodation with different standard offer safe living space for international students; an three-star on campus hotel that provided convenient rooms for friends and family visit; Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts attracts many world class artistic exhibitions. and of course shops, restaurants, bank and post office. One of my favourite things to do is sitting in the amazing on campus coffee bar chatting with friends or read a book whilst enjoy a cup of well made coffee.

Norwich as a beautiful historical city, it is famous for being the most cultural city in UK with its 900 year old Cathedral, there is always some fun things to do. And no matter in the big shopping centres or the small independent shops, you will always be able to find your style and needs.

 

Yiyi

MA Applied Translation Studies

Yiyi is my name and I am from Hangzhou, capital city of Zhejiang province, China. I am currently taking the postgraduate programme of applied translation studies, language and communication studies (LCS).

One of the reasons why I chose UEA for my further pursuit of study is that one of my professors recommended it to me saying that the social science and language studies are outstanding among UK universities, which is evidenced after I have completed the autumn semester studies of translation and languages. Apart from the social sciences, I also learned that the business, biology and particularly media studies are UEA's strong points, earning this university tremendous word of mouth, which confirmed that my choice for UEA is an absolutely right one.

The life of Norwich is impressive as well, giving me the experience of an utterly different culture and custom; the peacefulness, safeness, and friendliness of local people let me feel at home. Compared to other cities in UK, Norwich has unparalleled advantages in terms of low crime rate, clean environment, peaceful living conditions, rich historical sites and scenic spots (a lot to explore).

During the first semester of studies, the professionalism, dedication and efficiency of the faculty is highly impressive. The teaching measures and contents are very illuminating and inspirational, which giving me the insight of my field that I never expected before.

The extra curriculum activities are so various and colourful here that can pick almost every interesting societies that I can imagine. There are lots of parties organized by Union as well as societies that can socialize with students from all around the world. The accommodation here is quite comfortable and convenient no matter in or off the campus, and the rooms are available in most of the year. 

 

Amelia

MSc Strategic Supply Chain Management

Hello, my name is Wang, you can call me Amelia. I come from Wenzhou, southeast part of China. I am the Chinese ambassador of UEA. I am now studying MSc Strategic Supply Chain Management in Norwich business school of UEA.

This is the second year of me staying in Norwich. I studied in INTO University of East Anglia for graduate diploma last year, as I didn't have my bachelor degree in China. I passed all the exams and got a high mark in IELTS in INTO's course and now I am studying Master course in UEA. I really appreciate INTO for offering me the same opportunity to access the Master course as the other students who have already obtained their bachelor degrees.

One year in Norwich made me fall in love with this peaceful and beautiful city, people here are incredibly nice and warm, and the city is on the list of top safe cities of United Kingdom. The campus of UEA impressed me even more, it has got many price-winning buildings; a national renowned visual art centre, UK's best Sportspark, with an Olympic standard swimming pool available for everyone!

The teaching quality of UEA is extraordinary. The teaching facilities here are definitely state-of-the-art, which makes the classes vivid and lively. The teachers here are really experienced both in teaching and in real world practice. I can truly see the efforts they made to prepare the lectures and make them more understandable and full of fun. The interactive atmospheres they create in classes are impressive, which makes the learning more enjoyable. What is more, the individual supports they provide are totally helpful and attentive, we can book an appointment with any of them to discuss the problems we encountered in our studies or daily lives.

The social life here are colourful, with a student union just won the 2009 Student Choice Award, we get a wide range of different societies and clubs to choose, you will certainly find the one for you~! Also I want to specially mention the student accommodation here: fully furnished with an internet access, an en-suite bathroom exclusively for me to use, no need to handle the bills and fees, weekly room service, all of which makes the accommodations here a home away from home. Living here with other nice and friendly flat mates gives me the opportunity to meet people from various parts of the world which really broaden my horizon.

 

Yuyang

MSc Human Resource Management

My name is Yuyang and I'm from China. I'm currently studying (MSc) International Human Resource Management in Norwich Business School and quite enjoying my course and life in here.

Unlike Manchester University in which I was studying before, UEA has most of its university facilities gathered in a certain area. As I live in campus, I can see crowds of students go to and back from school, which makes me more feel like a university student here. This feeling could hardly be obtained in some other so called ‘city universities'. UEA is beautiful, especially for the large park near the main entrance, the big lake in the south, and lianas climbing upon the walls.

For my degree study, I think NBS is allocating course units in a great way. As a business student, you will learn basic knowledge in the first semester, covering AF (accounting and finance), marketing, HR and IS (information system). Then in the second semester, specific units will be taken according to your major. It is a great structure let students both study general knowledge and focus on own fields.

UEA has students from lots of places in the world, and it is a great chance here to communicate with people from different cultures. I quite enjoy the one year MSc course here and hope UEA could strengthen its Top 20 position and attract more students.

 

Yue

Language, Linguistics and Translation studies

After my graduation, I went on to work as a translation editor for one of the biggest translation service providers in China currently working on the Beijing Olympics.  From a purely empirical perspective, the MA  proved very rewarding in terms of hands-on specialist expertise acquired through practically orientated modules such as Work Experience and Technological Tools for Translators.  Another benefit of the MA course in my case is to do with the cross-cultural communication sensitivity and skills that I accumulated throughout my year at UEA.  They have made me more confident working in a multinational workplace, which I consider a real bonus, career-wise speaking, given increasing globalisation.  Also remarkable about the course is its well-balanced theoretical-practical approach to teaching and learning.  The broad range of unit choices gave me the flexibility to focus on areas of translation studies that interested me the most and the room for original thinking.  I've decided to pursue a PhD degree in translation or related areas when I consider myself to have a satisfactory concrete idea about the proposed research and am financially prepared.

 

Liya

MA Education and Development Studies

My education opportunity at the University of East Anglia (UEA) was made possible with the kind support of Joint Chevening Scholarship by the British Council and UEA. My international friends in development field recommended UEA to me. I made up my mind to come here when even a representative from another UK university highly praised DEV at UEA!

It was until a reunion with other Chinese scholars who study at other universities, I began to realize how UEA has gained its top rank for student satisfaction. I began to really appreciate everything at UEA that I took for granted at the beginning. From registering for NHS and the police registration, opening a bank account to taking the bus and so forth, UEA has taken careful consideration and managed to provide detailed, timely assistance. My friends were amazed to know that UEA has free English class not only for students but also for family members; that I registered with the police on campus instead of taking all the trouble travelling and queuing for hours; that I opened my bank account within three days… Not only UEA, but also the whole Norwich city is really a student-friendly place. And they are still trying to improve to the perfect!

After about two weeks of familiarising myself with the academic environment, I gradually became very fond of Development School at UEA. The school really deserves its reputation for its both theoretical and empirical foundation. The lecturers spend one third of their time in overseas development group (ODG) working in developing world. I think this is one important source that makes the classes inspiring, innovative, lively and practical. My advisor is always very encouraging and thoughtful in helping with my personal and academic life here at UEA. My schoolmates are from all over the world, friendly and always eager to help, which makes me feel like at a home of mini-UN. I can expect interesting and vigorous discussion in a seminar, workshop or just at an after-lecture tea or a party. Well, my study here did not teach me how to do things specifically as I expected, but equipped me with the capability of analyzing, questioning, exploring and working out how to do things myself. Now I know this is what I want and I've made the right choice.

 

PhD Environmental Sciences

I already finished my PhD study in March and come back to my home country on 1st April. However, I am still glad to present a testimonial to express my thanks to the University and the School of Environmental Science, who kindly provided the scholarship to fund my study.

I'd like to say the University of East Anglia is a good place for study, thanks to its academic reputation and the living environments. The School of Environmental Sciences is famous around the world with its distinguished research, especially in the field of global warming. The faculty and the service team of the School are friendly and helpful and made me happy during the 3-year study.

 

Qian ZhengYi

PhD Film Studies

My name is Qian ZhengYi. I`m a UEA postgraduate student who is doing his first year PhD course in Film Studies. I just finished my Masters Degree in Film Studies here last year and I decided to continue my PhD research. The reason I choose UEA is because of its high reputation in Media Studies and particularly Film Studies. It has a solid academic team with well-known staff and modern facilities to support your studies. There are many opportunities to get involved with the latest academic research in your field through conferences, research projects and film or art festivals. That`s the main reason that I chose UEA to achieve my research goals.

Apart from academic activities, UEA also offers students lots of opportunities for transnational communications. It is an international university where you can get to know people from different countries and cultural backgrounds. During the past year, I have made friends from Greece, America, Germany, Pakistan and other countries. I went to the cinema, concerts and exhibitions with these international friends, which has not only immersed me in British culture, but has also broadened and enriched my perspective on the arts and life The combination of classical culture and modernity is a main feature of Norwich. Here you can appreciate a classical music concert or fine arts exhibition at the medieval cathedral and then watch the latest Hollywood Blockbusters at the IMAX. In addition, if you are a fan of literature, Norwich should be your first choice as just last year, it was nominated as one of the UNESCO cities of literature.

The University also has a great living environment.  For the last year I have lived at the University Village, a quiet and neat place for studying and living. Norwich is a historical city with peaceful pace of life and healthy environment. The support systems at UEA are also of a very high standard.   If you have any enquiries, they will be swiftly and efficiently resolved by the Dean of Students Office, Union Advice Centre or Library Help Desk.

UEA and Norwich have been so inspirational for me and my studies that I will always recommend them.

 

PhD Law

As a third year PhD student at the UEA Law School, I am really enjoying my research and my life here.

Besides boasting a high reputation in the quality of its teaching and research, UEA can provide you with the best facilities necessary for your study, such as a very spacious library with a 24-hours IT area. Also, with over 1000 non-UK students from more than 100 different countries and ethnic groups, UEA is a real international community within which you could appreciate multiple cultures and make worldwide friends. Maybe more importantly, having all-year-round interesting social events and fantastic natural environment (especially the beautiful lake with so many lovely birds) on campus and countless pubs/theatres/shops/parks nearby, you will never be short of exciting things to do and nice places to go.

Studying at UEA may be challenging and even expensive, but I can assure you it is a very rewarding investment for your future if you make use of the chances this lovely university offers you.

I learnt how to really study at UEA, before this I just obeyed teachers. The Learning Enhancement Team in the Dean of Students Office also helped me a lot in terms of advice on how to write essays and how to prepare presentations. Really, the most important things I learnt are study skills, confidence and independence.

Do you have any tips for current students or recent graduates?
Be patient. Work experience is very useful, believe in yourself and have confidence.
