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


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.students@uea.ac.uk


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.
