My name is Jean-Etienne, known as J-E or Jean, I am a first year studying Business Management that I really enjoy so far.

Its been a few months only that I arrived on campus, but I am so far thrilled with the surroundings and the environment I live in. Before coming here I was living in South Africa 10.000 km from England, I knew the university thanks to one of my friends that highly recommended me to come. I could have gone back to France, but the idea of studying in English was quite exciting for me and it was a different kind of work to experience.

The university of East Anglia  has a big and beautiful campus with all of a student need to provide for he's needs. With a shop, a few cafes all around campus, one campus kitchen, bank, bar,  art center*(perfect for art students), a park with a lake where there is benches, tables and barbecues nice to have , and a huge sports park. All of it 10mins away from your campus room.

I just can wake up 20mins before my lectures and even got time to grab a quick coffee.

The learning at UEA is optimal, the lecture are interesting, the lecturer interacts a lot and work to provide you the slides before lectures, the seminars helps you to integrate the lectures, a lot of non module events to help you improve your skills where you need to. The university provide help if you need it with English support programs, that every student can ask to attend.

The 24/7 library on campus that could end up being your home before exams and during assessment time, the library is very modern with different studies areas, printers, large amount of books available for students and one IT help desk.

On top of that UEA is on the top UK 14,  has the best student experience in the UK according to Times Higher Education Survey. Who wouldn't like to live in a perfect student environment, and finish with a degree from such a high rated university, international students even become weather friendly here.

If you have any questions about coming to study at UEA please do not hesitate to contact me. You can email me directly at

Language, Linguistics and Translation Studies

After completing the MA, I moved to London where I started to look for freelance projects. Little by little I manage to get more and more projects and a part-time job which I left when I felt I could get enough work. Being in London helped, as I worked on various occasions on longer in-house projects, based in London. I worked for about six months, as part of a team, on the new version of the Spanish - English Larousse dictionary which was really interesting and quite different from usual translation work. I am now working for an intergovernmental organisation called the International Oil Pollution Compensation Fund in the External Relations and Conference Department as a Translation Administrator. I am proofreading, editing, formatting and occasionally translating. It is good experience and gives me insights into the UN system, and especially translation within the UN. I plan to go back to translating rather than proofreading and have applied for the UN competitive exam for translators.

Doing the MAATS was helpful, both for the CV and for experience. I learned from it because we had to reflect more on the task of translating and the skills involved and also it gave us some basics in Trados which I now use.

2017 Funding

For degree courses starting in 2017, the University of East Anglia (UEA) will charge a tuition fee of £9,250 a year for UK/EU undergraduates. EU students will also have the option to take out a Tuition Fee Loan from the UK Government (in the same way as UK students). The fee is paid directly to the university on your behalf and is administered by Student Finance England. You can borrow the full fee, part of the fee or none of the fee each year of your study. You pay back the Loan once you have finished studying and earning over £21,000 a year. Find out more information on student finance.


Students do not need to apply for bursary support, all students are automatically considered using household income information received from Student Finance England. Eligible students will be contacted shortly before the course starts. Bursaries cannot be combined but students can receive both a bursary and scholarship if eligible.

For 2017 entry the University will be offering the following bursaries for Home and EU students:

Support is on a fee pro-rata basis for those students paying half fees or less. If a student has an income of under £16,000 and is a Care Leaver, they will be eligible for a £3,000 fee waiver.

Eligible students can chose to receive their bursary in one of the following ways:

  • Fee waiver (default option)

Students on NHS funded courses (i.e. where no fee is payable from the student) offered by the University are not eligible for a University bursary. NHS funded courses are those offered by the School of Nursing Sciences and School of Allied Health Professions.
