Hello! My name is Sofia Georgiou and I am a current 3rd year Undergraduate student in BSc Economics at UEA. Economics was always an important subject since the ancient eras. It allows us to analyse and evaluate previous, current and future market situations in order to be able to make rational decisions as much as we can. Moreover, Economics can show the evolution of many political systems or parties so we can improve them in order individuals to gain higher earnings or benefits. What I really like about my subject is that it is a subject which is endless in terms of knowledge, it is not a static field but there is something new to learn every day in real time. UEA School of Economics is currently 9th in the UK's Universities ranking table available by the Guardian 2015 League Table. All ECO School academics are really helpful and supportive with all students. There is no way you do not feel like home when you are with them.

UEA is the place to be! I started my beautiful academic journey in 2011 when I was studying in INTO UEA. INTO was definitely one the best experiences of my life. It helped me improved my academic writing and moreover I got the best foundations in Business, Economics and Accounting in order to be aware of how university's teaching system will be. Then in 2012 I got accepted by UEA School of Economics. I am at UEA for the last four years and I really do not want to leave. An experience at UEA will always be saved in your memory for life. In addition, UEA campus is one of the largest campuses in the UK and it provided loads of facilities so you do not have to spend time visiting the city if you need anything. Also, the scene is more than amazing, surrounded by so much green which makes you relax and feel positive for the whole day. 

Norwich is one of the safest cities in the UK which makes it even more attractive for students. It is really graphical and traditional. Being for a day out in Norwich you can actually see a lot of history everywhere. Back in the time Norwich used to be the capital of England. The castle and cathedral areas are always a fantastic scene. Norwich is definitely a place of entertainment.

UEA Sportspark offers an Olympic size pool and loads pf other facilities where students can train or relax. It is always busy with people who are active and hosting many events. Most of the students are really active and there so many opportunities in any field so nobody gets bored.

UEA is the best experience of my life. If I had the opportunity to remain forever a student at this university I would unquestionably take it!

Living and studying at the University of East Anglia in Norwich for the past three years has been a wonderful experience. The campus is very modern and offers every facility a student could require, including our library that is open 24/7, our student-run bar and shops, and the Sportspark that offers students the chance to participate in many different sports and activities both competitively and for leisure.

The staff at the University, both professors and administrative staff, are all of the highest standard and are especially good at helping new students settle in and feel welcome at UEA. The university's Fresher's Week helped me to feel welcome, make friends, join clubs and societies, and get oriented with the campus. UEA's diverse range of student backgrounds has offered me a chance to interact with people from parts of the world that I'd otherwise have never had the opportunity to meet. Norwich itself is also a beautiful town with a good mix of modern facilities and cultural and historical monuments. I'd recommend UEA and Norwich as a great place to live and study to any student considering it.

You can also contact Elisabeth, our Cypriot student ambassador, to ask about life at UEA.

One of the reasons I chose to study at UEA was due to it's natural and tranquil environment. Its modern, secure and technologically equipped campus and accommodation offers close proximity to the university's schools but also to its extra curriculum activities. These range from field athletics, soccer, tennis and various other indoor and outdoor sports. The city is only ten minutes drive or on the bus, which proved to be very handy.

UEA offers a conglomeration of races and faces which allowed me to gain insight into varying cultures and ethnic backgrounds which in turn gave me the distinct characteristic of being social with different people. I feel that this played a role in helping to complete both my masters' degrees in a diverse megalopolis like London.

Elisabeth Hi I am Elisabeth and I am currently a Masters student studying Energy Engineering with Environmental Management at UEA. Energy issues are one of the key challenges that the industry sector is facing. Coupled with environmental awareness issues I believe this course is perfect to equip young students towards a rewarding career. Since the UEA is in the heart of the East Anglia Energy Group, our course is closely linked to the industry, thus giving us opportunities to network and increasing our chances of employability after graduation.  UEA is truly a fantastic place to study. I can justify that, as I have completed my Bachelor's degree here in Environmental Science. The three years I spent here during my undergraduate degree were so fulfilling and fun that I knew this was the place for my postgraduate studies too.  What I love the most about both of the courses is the opportunity to go on fieldtrips. I have had the opportunity to travel to so many places with my course such as Wales to carry out research, and this has truly been one of the most fun experiences.  I chose UEA because of its high rating and also because I knew that UEA students get a lot of support from academics.  Both UEA and Norwich offer great places for entertainment. On campus you can find various places to eat drink and socialise. The outstanding facilities offered at the sportspark are truly a huge bonus. The Olympic size pool is one that I enjoy using. And for all of you out there who enjoy group classes such Body Balance and Body Pump, you will be happy to know that these are offered at the UEA sporstpark. At UEA I got the opportunity to meet students from various countries which is really great as I got the opportunity to learn about new cultures, taste new cuisines, and learn traditional dances. There are some many social clubs students can join to either learn new things or to just organise trips and events. Norwich is a beautiful city to live in, and combines both modern facilities as well as historic sites, such as the castle.  As a whole my time spent here at UEA has been full of exciting and educational moments that have shaped who I am. So I would strongly recommend UEA to anyone, as it has become a second home to me.
