Latin American Student Ambassador
My name is Claudia Linan and I am currently in my PhD’s thesis writing -up year. I am doing a PhD International Development and I have been at UEA for four years now. Now that I think about it, that´s a lot! But it shows that I have been really happy here. I first started with my MA International Social Development at UEA and decided to stay because of the great environment and reputation this university and its staff have to offer.
As part of my PhD programme I have been encouraged to present research posters and speak at conferences and publish at renowned academic journals. This has helped me disseminate my research and learn and share with like-minded people which has enriched my research project further. Since I was in my Masters’ and preparing my research proposal to apply for a PhD, I always found support and openness from my teachers, which I find to be one of the outstanding characteristics from professors at UEA.
During my Masters’ year I accommodations at UEA and I can’t recommend it enough. I was living at Suffolk Terrace and I loved having a window overlooking UEA’s lake. I lived with other students from all over the world. I had flatmates from Japan, Russia, USA, the UK, 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.
All in all, UEA has made my experience as an international student outstanding and I can´t recommend it enough! If you have any questions about studying at the University of East Anglia, please do not hesitate to contact me either via the Latin American Students Facebook page or you can email me at Latinamerican.email@example.com
Me llamo Claudia Linan y me encuentro actualmente escribiendo la tesis de mi Doctorado en Desarrollo Internacional. He estado ya cuatro años en UEA! Qué rápido se pasa el tiempo! Pero de verdad he estado realmente feliz aquí. Inicie mis estudios en UEA hace tres años con la Maestría en Desarrollo Social Internacional y decidí quedarme por el gran ambiente y reputación que le preceden a esta Universidad y a todo su staff.
Como parte de mi programa doctoral, he estado motivada a presentar mi investigación a manera de posters, conferencias y en publicaciones en reconocidas revistas académicas. Esto me ha ayudado a diseminar mi Proyecto y compartir con otros académicos, lo cual ha enriquecido mi propuesta. Desde que estuve en la Maestría y preparando mi propuesta de investigación para aplicar al Doctorado, siempre he encontrado un apoyo cercano y una actitud abierta de parte de todos mis maestros, algo que creo es una característica única de los profesores en UEA.
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, Reino Unido, China y Azarbajan. Una de las cosas que más disfruté fue 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.
