Hello everyone! My name is Alexis, a 3rd year Pharmacy student. 

 As a student studied in Hong Kong for over 18 years, I truly understand that it is not an easy decision to make which university to study in. So, Why UEA? 

First of all, according to 2015 Student satisfaction survey, UEA was ranked no.1 as a most satisfied university to study in. In my opinion, UEA is a peaceful, quiet and a friendly place to study where you would not be easily distracted. I especially enjoy the library service where opening 24/7 with advanced gadgets and over 200,000 books

Also, you will find that you are studying in a very supportive environment. Each of you are assigned to an advisor to make sure everything is going well during your degree. Every member of staff I have met here have been friendly and supportive. Mostly, you do not need to book an appointment to have a meeting. Instead, all you need to do is only knock the door and pop in. They are willing to listen to you no matter what issue is it. Also, you do not need to worry if you are missing a lecture because you are ill. There are lot of drop-in sessions which is held in a small group to consolidate your knowledge.

 Secondly, UEA is a place to explore your potential. In UEA, there are over 200 clubs and societies. By joining in, it is a really helpful way to make a new friends from all over the world and appreciate different cultures.

 Last but not least, the most memorable thing so far is living in campus. You cannot believe how convenient is to live in campus. It is because you can find anything you need in campus! UEA provides eight types of accommodations to choose from – and there is even accommodation located in the City Centre. Staying in campus is very safe, clean and comfortable.

Business Management

My name is Marissa and I am currently in my third year of my Bachelor degree studying Business Management. There are three main reasons I chose to study in UEA: the reputation, the campus and Norwich itself! I have never regretted studying in UEA and it is definitely one of the best decisions I've made in my life!

UEA is a famous research-based university which means that we students have the benefit of getting up to date information of the current theories and practices. UEA is also reputable for their English Literature, Pharmacy, Environmental Science and Drama courses. One reason why I believe UEA has achieved high levels of student satisfaction is because our lecturers, advisors and mentors are always there to help us whenever we encounter problems during our studies.

UEA has such an amazing campus which is one thing I love most, we have our own lake which you can always do your morning jog or even organise a barbeque during the summer. Being a campus based university; it is just so convenient since all the facilities are just near the lecture theatres as well. Did you know our Sportspark (UEA's sport centre) has an Olympic size swimming pool!

UEA has over 150 sports clubs and societies that you can join and participate allowing you to meet people from all around the world. Concerts are also regularly held on campus, singers like Ed Sheeran and Coldplay came to play for us last year! Trust me, you will never get bored at UEA!

Norwich is a safe and beautiful city, though small, everything that you are trying to look for would be available. There are lots of small cafes and shops to explore and also two cathedrals and a castle to look out for.

BSc Accounting & Finance

Hello all!

Hi my name is Max, I have just completed my final year of my BSc Accounting & Finance course. My decision to choose UEA to undertake my undergraduate course was because of the fantastic location, the reputation of University courses and the diverse international culture. My three years in Norwich has been unforgettable, time flies when you're enjoying your time in UEA.

UEA, without saying is one of the most reputable institutions in United Kingdom, especially famous for their media, pharmacy and environmental studies. UEA offers a lot of student to teacher relations, where we are closely monitored by the University and I believe it is essential to be keeping in touch with the University.

Though UEA is one of the smaller campuses in UK, it only takes two hours to reach to London, 20 minutes away from the local city which contains one of the biggest shopping malls in UK. Our local football club which were promoted to the English Premier League. Students who never been to UK do not have to worry, we even have our own airport! Doesn't this make Norwich the perfect place to enjoy University life?

Many of our students are involved in many extra circular activities outside their studies to meet new people and relieve from their stress. UEA offers a wide range of societies with societies such as the Hong Kong Society which most of us gather in the beginning of the year to find our beloved citizens of Hong Kong, offering sports teams such as football, basketball and badminton. Every year we are invited to big sports events such as Nottingham Games, where we compete against other universities from UK.

University of East Anglia has offered me not only a degree but also memories that I will never forget.

BSc Economics

Hello, my name is Jessica, I am a third year undergraduate studying BSc Economics at University of East Anglia.

I chose to study Economics here because there are numerous prestigious professors teaching at the School of Economics and of the good reputation with its student satisfaction. With my degree, it gives me free choices of modules so I am able to study in different area in the schools and get a broad exposure to a range of other core disciplines. A good Economics degree doesn't just open one door for you, but open to many different fields and many different areas of work such as management, analyst and consultancy.

UEA is a beautiful campus university located in a historical city of Norwich. You can always find a welcoming and community living atmosphere prevail on our campus. I love the uniqueness of the architecture of our university and the fact that there are many lovely open spaces, a lake and woods to walk around. The campus itself does not appear to be very large but it offers a wide range of facilities and services to students and stuffs including a 24-hour library, Sportspark (a good sports place), restaurants, coffee shops, banks, travel shop, post office, grocery shop, book store, bike shop, and much more.

The city of Norwich is one of the oldest cities in Britain. The Independent newspaper recently placed it as one of the top 10 coolest places' for students. It is fairly small but when you get to know it, there is absolutely loads of stuff to do and places to explore. You can find a variety of shops, cafes and cool places to hang out with friends. In the summer, there are loads of events going on to attract the students and locals of Norwich; in the winter, there is a nice ice-rink where you can go ice-skating as well.

BSc Ecology

UEA provided the place for me to get to know myself and be myself - Do different is UEA's motto - and it helped us all be individuals. I met so many different people and did so many things. I learnt more about the academic and social side of life from this one place. The atmosphere was always friendly and no one felt like a stranger at UEA. I worked at the Union Bar, helped out with clubs, attended great lectures and even kept fit! There is no better place to be for that part of your life! It's a place where I worked and played hard!
