Latin American Student Ambassador 

My name is Claudia Linan and I am currently studying a PhD International Development. I started my studies at UEA last year with my Masters programme in International Social Development and I decided to stay because I was just so happy with everything UEA has to offer.

One of the things I really like about UEA is the personalised attention they provide to every student. Starting with the Student Support Service which is always organising various events and workshops, especially for international students, where they give useful advice and assessment. The Career Central Office has also been of great help for me, they have given me guidance regarding CV building and internship applications, I love knowing that they will keep helping us even three years after graduation.Lecturers and administrative staff have been extremely helpful throughout my whole experience. Through a group e-mail from one of our lecturers I found out about a Research Project for an International initiative in Norwich, and during the summer I collaborated with them. It was such an interesting experience and I am very grateful that the Faculty at the School of International Development are always up to date, which is marvellous because they can share their valuable experiences with the students.

During my Masters’ year I was living at Suffolk Terrace, one of the accommodations at UEA and I can say I really recommend it. It was great because I met people from literally all over the world, I had flatmates from Japan, Russia, USA, Romania, China, and Azerbaijan. One of the parts I loved the most about it was the potlucks we organised; I got to try lovely and exotic dishes. I was lucky because I am still in contact with some of them. I never felt lonely, and whenever I wanted to be in complete silence, the library was just 2 minutes away and it is open 24/7. If this wasn’t enough, the lake was just meters from my accommodation so I would always look out the window and saw people jogging and walking their dogs; this motivated me enough to walk every once or twice a week.  

Norwich is a great city! Every time I went to the Centre I discovered a new place I haven’t been to, and I just love it! There are so many events every weekend that one really just need the time! Last event I really loved was the ghost walk around the City Centre, I learned lots about the several legends and spooky tales that are popular in Norwich. I recommend it if you are up for a little fright!

Me llamo Claudia Linan y me encuentro actualmente estudiando un Doctorado en Desarrollo Internacional. Inicie mis estudios en UEA el año pasado con la Maestría en Desarrollo Social Internacional y decidí quedarme porque de verdad me fascino todo lo que UEA ofrece.

Una de las cosas que me gustan mucho de UEA es la atención personalizada que dan a cada uno de sus estudiantes. Empezando con la Oficina de Student Support Service, la cual siempre está organizando diferentes eventos y talleres, especialmente para estudiantes internacionales, en donde dan consejos súper útiles. La oficina de Career Central también me ha dado mucho apoyo para mejorar mi CV y mis aplicaciones a diferentes prácticas profesionales, me encanta la idea de saber que ellos podrán ayudarnos incluso hasta 3 años después de habernos graduado.

Los maestros y el personal administrativo de la Universidad han sido extremadamente atentos durante toda mi experiencia en UEA. A través de un correo comunal compartido por uno de mis maestros, me entere de un Proyecto de investigación para una iniciativa internacional en Norwich y durante el verano colabore con ellos. Fue una experiencia muy interesante y estoy muy agradecida con la Facultad de Desarrollo y el hecho de que sean expertos en su área y siempre estén actualizados, es algo genial, ya que siempre están dispuestos a compartir sus increíbles experiencias con los alumnos.

Durante el año que duro mi Maestría estuve viviendo en Suffolk Terrace, una de las tantas opciones de Residencias en UEA y les puedo decir que realmente recomiendo la experiencia. Me encanto vivir con gente de literal todo el mundo, tuve compañeros de Japón, Rusia, Estados Unidos, Romania, China y Azarbajan. Una de las cosas que más disfrute era cuando nos juntábamos a cocinar y cada quien traía algo típico de su país, pude probar platillos deliciosos y súper exóticos. Soy muy afortunada porque pude hacer buenos amigos con los que aún estoy en contacto. Nunca me sentí sola, y cuando necesitaba estar en completo silencio o concentrarme más, la biblioteca la tenía a dos minutos y podía estar allí cuanto quisiera, ya que está abierta las 24 horas del día. Por si esto no fuera suficiente, tenía el lago muy cerquita de mí y sentía única la oportunidad de poder ver hacia afuera de mi ventana a gente corriendo o paseando a sus perros por la mañana, que hasta yo me motivaba para ir a ejercitarme.

¡La verdad creo que Norwich es una gran ciudad! ¡Cada vez que voy de paseo por el Centro descubro un lugar nuevo y me fascina! ¡Hay demasiados eventos cada semana y fin de semana que lo único que se necesita es tiempo! El último evento al que asistí fue una caminata de fantasmas alrededor del Centro, aprendí mucho de varias leyendas y de cuentos de terror que son famosos en Norwich. Recomiendo este evento si están preparados para un susto!
