Greek Student Ambassador

My name is Elena Vontzalidou and I the Greek Ambassador of UEA. I am currently a Primary PGCE student here and I completed a BA English Literature in 2014.

As an undergraduate, I chose to study at UEA because it offers one of the most highly regarded English courses in the UK and I wanted to study under the guidance of a faculty which is known for its academic excellence. The great amount of module choices available on my course allowed me to tailor my degree according to my interests, and also gave me the opportunity to study subjects in different fields such as French and Spanish. I particularly enjoyed studying Modernism during my second year, as well as attending lectures delivered by novelists themselves. Another unique aspect of studying Literature at UEA, was that Norwich has been named an official UNESCO City of Literature and is therefore host to one of the most prestigious literary festivals in the UK every year.

As a postgraduate, I am currently training to be a Primary School teacher in the School of Education and Lifelong Learning. This involves working in several local Primary Schools as an assistant class teacher as well as undertaking academic commitments at UEA. I really enjoy the practical aspect of the course, as it helps to provide me with a sound understanding of how schools work on a day to day basis and thus prepare me for the real challenges of teaching. Working with highly qualified and trained staff in a department that ranks within the top 3 providers for my course in the country, is of course an added bonus.

Social life at UEA is never boring- whether you are into sports, arts, clubbing or travelling, this university can, and will cater for you. Joining societies you never even thought existed, can be fun and very eye opening. In my first year I joined knitting society and since then have grown passionate for all hand crafts. This led me to join Drama Society where I help make costumes. I am also part of UEA's Orchestra and Choir, an immensely rewarding experience as we regularly host concerts in one of the city's splendid Cathedrals. Writing for our student newspaper, Concrete, has also been a rewarding experience, especially as I interviewed both Victoria Hislop when she was on tour for her novel "The Thread" and Luis de Bernere. On the sports side, I enjoy swimming in the Olympic sized pool available right here on campus as well as attending regular yoga classes also held on campus up to four times a week. As for nights out, Norwich is home to numerous vibrant and welcoming clubs and we are also very proud of our own little club right here on campus, a venue known as the LCR.

No matter what your interests are, UEA is the place to be! Offering leading academic excellence in most fields as well as numberless fun and diverse extracurricular activities, UEA will become your home away from home.

Georgios Mamantopoulos

BSc Business Management

My name is Giorgos Mamantopoulos and I am a graduate student from the University of East Anglia where I was studying Business Management for three years as an UG degree. When I graduated from high school in Greece I started looking for educational opportunities abroad and it wasn't long until I realised that UEA had everything my 18-year-old, enthusiastic self was looking for at that time: The career prospects of UEA graduates were looking promising, Norwich Business School was a prestigious school – well-recognised around Europe, the Campus and the Sportspark were on the top in England, and most important to me, I have to be honest, were the rates of student satisfaction. UEA students were in the top 5 most satisfied student groups in England! I did not think second time. I applied, got my conditional offer, matched the conditions asked from me, and within two months from that point I was living inside the campus I used to see only in the UEA website.

My student experience was fully on the move by the end of September 2009. I was to lucky to have created a big yet very close circle of English and international friends, with most of which I am still in contact and we visit each other in every opportunity, including people from my course, campus accommodation, and the International Student Society (ISS). With these people I had the chance to participate in plenty of events that were new for me, from International Parties and trips around Europe, to Paintballing and film/music-making!

Academically, UEA provided a very suitable environment for research; with the library open 24 hours a day, unlimited access to books, journals, and electronic sources, and with all my Professors/academic tutors being ready to answer any questions I had with high professionalism and interpersonal understanding. The student environment was built to meet the needs of academic processes such as research, debating, data collecting, etc. When someone makes their way through UEA and progresses to higher grades, they will eventually come to realise that studying at UEA is comprised by high levels of support which is matched nicely with, and does not substitute for, self-motivation.


Finally, Norwich is a very beautiful city with rich history and pleasant relaxed vibes, which, nevertheless, does not cease to live it up to the rhythm of the thousands of students who study in UEA.

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.


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 2016 entry the University will be offering the following bursaries for Home and EU students:

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

  • Fee waiver (default option)
