Hola! My name is Natalia and I am currently doing a masters in Climate change and international development. When applying for a masters I looked at other options but UEA caught my eye since the course they offered couldn’t have been a better fit for what I wanted to do. Of course, before deciding to come I did a thorough investigation to see if UEA was for me. The university has a great reputation and out of the 16,872 students in the university 2,820 are internationals which give the opportunity to meet people from all over the world such as from Norway, Russia, Japan, Italy and more! The university offers many opportunities to grow both academically and professionally, from career fairs to seminars to meeting people such as Jane Goodall and Isabel Allende, there is always a chance to expand your horizons. The university provides many services that support student throughout their time at UEA, they understand that being away from home can sometimes be difficult and want to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible, want to help build a home away from home.

Speaking of home, from the moment I arrived to UEA and Norwich is felt like home! People are very friendly and there are many places to see and explore making it very difficult to get bored. In a 3-minute walk from the university you can immerse yourself in nature see a bit of wildlife and even meet some ponies on the way. There are infinite societies to join, they have something for everyone, from pasta society to wall climbing society to yoga society, you will always find someone with common interest and make great friends along the way.

So far, I have made lifelong friends whom I have shared great experiences with, I have also learned so much from amazing professors who are always available to help and none of these things would have been possible if I hadn’t come to UEA.  The university has excelled my expectations and I am sure it will do the same for you! If you have any questions feel free to contact me through the Latin American students Facebook page or you can email me at Latinamerican.students@uea.ac.uk

¡Hola! Mi nombre es Natalia y estoy haciendo una maestría en Cambio climático y desarrollo internacional. Cuando estaba aplicando para la maestría vi muchas opciones, pero UEA se destaco entre todas, ya que el curso que ofrecían no pudo haber encajado mejor con lo que yo quería hacer. Claro, antes de elegir venir aquí hice una investigación para ver si UEA en verdad era para mí. Para comenzar, la universidad tiene una gran reputación y de 16,872 estudiantes en la universidad, 2,820 son internacionales lo cual da la oportunidad de conocer a personas de todo el mundo como de Noruega, Rusia, Japón, Italia y de muchos países más. La universidad ofrece muchas oportunidades para crecer académica y profesionalmente, por ejemplo, ferias de empleos, seminarios y conocer a personas inspiradoras como Jane Goodall y Isabel Allende. La universidad ofrece muchos servicios que apoyan a los estudiantes mediante su tiempo en UEA, ellos entienden que puede ser un poco difícil estar lejos de casa y quieren de que el tiempo que estén aquí sea memorable.

Desde el momento que llegue a UEA y Norwich se sintió como casa. Las personas son muy amigables y hay muchos lugares para visitar y explorar haciéndolo difícil aburrirse. A tan solo tres minutos de la universidad uno puede encontrarse con la naturaleza y hasta ver algunos ponis. Hay muchas sociedades que uno puede unirse, como ser la sociedad de alpinismo, yoga y Latino América, siempre vas a encontrar a alguien con los mismos intereses y formar grandes amistades.

He encontrado amigos para toda la vida con quienes he compartido grandes experiencias, también he aprendido mucho de profesores increíbles que siempre están disponibles para ayudar y nada de esto hubiera sido posible si no hubiera venido a UEA. ¡La universidad ha excedido mis expectativas y estoy segura de que hará lo mismo para ti!
