Hi there! I'm Lukas and I'm a second year psychology student at UEA. 

Studying in Germany has never been an option for me. I've always wanted my life to be an adventure. So right after high school, I set out to explore the world - in France, as a volunteer at the Taizé Community, as a student of Peace Studies in Sweden, as hostel staff on the Canary Islands. I have worked or studied in 6 different countries so far - more to come. And yet, of all the different places where I could have gone to study, I quit my university in Sweden to come to UEA.

I chose UEA because it is ranked among the top 1 percent of higher education institutions in the whole world. It is in the top 15 in the UK. And, most importantly, it is consistently ranked among the top choices for student satisfaction (3rd this year). Here at UEA it is all about you and your experience as a student. 

What I really enjoy about studying here, is UEA's vibrant student life and international focus. 

Unlike the majority of German universities, UEA is a campus university. Students live in residences on campus in their first year, and it really feels like being part of a community. There is loads of things going on on campus - you can do anything. There is so many activities and student groups (‘societies') run by the student union that it is really easy to meet new people and make friends for life. The over 200 clubs and societies are a really good way to meet people, make new friends, learn new skills and simply have a good time.

Unlike many German universities, UEA's facilities are state of the art, lecture theatres are not overcrowded, and students do matter. Our campus hosts a supermarket, a book store, a bank, a pharmacy, our own medical centre, three restaurants, eight cafés, two bars, our own club, a sports centre and a 24/7 library. I found it really helpful to use the various student services, like our careers centre, that give students lots of advice. Whatever your question or problem or if you just need somebody to talk to - at UEA, you are never alone.

So, what I am trying to say is: University is about more than just textbooks. It is the time of your life. But ultimately, it depends on what you make out of it. At UEA, you have all you need to make your experience the time of your life.

If  you have any questions, email me at germanstudents@uea.ac.uk or message me on Facebook.

Master of Law

UEA had a great campus atmosphere and student life and offered interesting postgraduate programmes. The LLM enabled me to learn a lot about the interface of law and economics which I have always found interesting ... the Centre for Competition Policy has an excellent reputation with respect to research in competition law and economics. The seminar groups were small and our lecturers encouraged us to actively participate and were happy to help if questions arose outside the seminars. In addition, students on my course were integrated into the academic life of the Centre for Competition Policy. We were invited to attend seminars organised by the Centre and got to know several PhD students.

My further studies gave me the opportunity to specialise in an interesting field of law which I could not study in such detail during the undergraduate studies. An additional year at university also gives you a great opportunity of broadening your horizon and making friends with interesting people from all over the world."

Development Studies

Development Studies als Studiengang! So etwas hatte ich in Deutschland vergeblich gesucht, wichtige Komponenten der nachhaltigen Entwicklung in einem Kurs vereint. Der Kurs hält in jeder Hinsicht was er verspricht, die Professoren inspirieren einen immer wieder aufs neue und die ungezwungene kollegiale Nähe zu ihnen ist hervorzuheben. Ein anderes großes Plus war die Möglichkeit ein Semester im Ausland verbringen zu können. Auch die Auslandserfahrung, der Professoren und die der anderen Studenten, die zu einem hohen Anteil aus dem Ausland sind, bereichert den Studienalltag. Ich kann jedem der interessiert ist und etwas ändern will Dev empfehlen!

The MAATS was a fantastic experience because it really showed me how much more there is to translation. The best bit for me was the hands-on experience in both the labs with the translation tools and the translations we did for the Forum's Origins exhibition. When I decided which MA to take, UEA was one of the very few universities to offer a practical, hands-on component. Another thing I really enjoyed were the workshops. It was a great insight into the day-to-day issues of translating various pieces of text.

2016 Funding

For degree courses starting in 2016, the University of East Anglia (UEA) will charge a tuition fee of £9,000 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.
