West African Student Ambassador
I am Karen Boakye-Danquah, second year student of Pharmacology and Drug Discovery. I am the new International Student Ambassador for West Africa. I made a decision to study at UEA because they gave me another opportunity to achieve my goal. UEA offers a variety of foundation year courses which once again created a career pathway for me. Moreover, the university’s School of Pharmacy is one of the best in the country as well as ranked 12th for overall academic excellence by the United Kingdom university league table.
Starting university was a new chapter in my life hence I had to make sure whatever decision I made would have a positive outcome.
UEA being ranked very highly for student satisfaction also meant that the school really had the interest of their students at heart hence I didn’t hesitate to note that down. I have been at UEA for three years now and the university does take the opinions of its students into consideration. During my applicant day visit to the university, I was informed about the 24hour access to the library and truly they have not let me down.
Above all, the UEA campus has everything you need to help you settle in but Norwich City itself has fantastic shops, restaurants, cinemas and many more. Likewise there is also a medical centre on campus
Moreover, most international and home students seem to enjoy their studies in UEA and love the city itself. UEA has the best facilities, both educational and sporting.
If you have any questions about studying at the University of East Anglia, please do not hesitate to contact me either via the West African Students Facebook page or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Ghana: Annie - Media and International Development
Choosing to pursue my postgraduate degree at UEA is one of the best decisions I have ever made. I was able to find the right course (Media and International Development) to suit my career ambition, the application process was not cumbersome, and communication with UEA from my country till my arrival at school was frequent and effective. My experience at UEA has been awesome! The Lecturers are well experienced and highly competitive in their fields, and are always ready to give you their undivided attention when the need arises.
The school has got state of the art facilities to aid students in their research and study experience during their academic journey. There’s a 24-hour library, a sports park with different sports societies to help keep you fit, affordable accommodation, and a Career Centre to guide students in making good career choices; I like the idea that the school is not only concerned about the academic life of students but also about their post-academic life (careers). UEA is located in the city of Norwich, which is one of the most beautiful and safest cities in the United Kingdom.
