Hello, my name is Janice Wysynski and I am an MPharm Integrated Master of Pharmacy student in UEA. I chose to study at UEA because UEA School of Pharmacy is one of the best in the UK and it has always been the top of National Student Survey for student satisfaction. Also, I like the innovative teaching techniques used in the School of Pharmacy that enable the students to gain hands-on experience of real working challenges and develop the skills required in the real working environment right from the start.
I enjoy studying at UEA because there is a lot of support available when I need it. For example, I can easily contact the lecturer if I am struggling with my study. All of the lecturers are very knowledgeable, friendly and approachable. I am also assigned to an adviser whom I can always turn to whenever I need any help. In addition, there is Career Central on the campus that I can pop in if I have any queries with CV and job application. Another thing that I enjoy about studying at UEA is there are a lot of opportunities in the university that I can apply to in order to develop myself. For example, I have an opportunity to be a student representative of my year, which then can help me to improve my communication skill.
UEA has a great social life because there are many societies and clubs that the students can join. I myself have joined some societies such as Indonesian Society, Malaysian Society, Pharmacy Society, and British Red Cross. Through joining the societies, I meet a lot of local and/or international students and make a lot of new friends. UEA itself has a lot of excellent facilities that I really enjoy. One of them is the library that is open 24/7, which then allows me to go in whenever I need to. Another excellent facility is Sportspark, which is currently the biggest indoor sports centre in Britain and boasts an extensive range of activities. There are other facilities in campus that I find really useful, such as bank, café, shop and laundrettes.
Not only UEA, I also love Norwich because it is a very nice historical city. It is also one of the safest cities in the UK, which makes it a really good place to stay and study. It has great shopping centres and lots of restaurants serving delicious food from almost all around the world. In addition to this, the city is easily accessed by bus from UEA as the bus service runs throughout the day and most of the night.
To put it in a nutshell, studying at UEA is one of the most exciting experiences that I have had in my life.

PhD in Film Studies
In 2008, while pursuing my Masters studies in Amsterdam, I wrote and presented a final paper on cult cinema. I quoted some works, including one by a film professor from University of East Anglia. Soon after, as my interest grew, I decided to develop my paper into a PhD research proposal and continue my study at PhD level. I contacted the film professor at UEA as asked him to be my research advisor as I am convinced he is one of the best in the field.
I arrived in Norwich in 2012. It was cold and quiet as most students either went home for Christmas or elsewhere for their winter holiday. And so, the library became my favourite spot. It helped me, a student from a tropical country survived the winter break when I first arrived in Norwich not having any friends, TV, or internet and whilst I was unfamiliar with the city.
I was (and still) am impressed with the library as it is open 24/7, 365 days a year. Secondly, I was impressed with the lake and wildlife surrounding the campus. It is not surprising to catch rabbits and squirrels hopping and running around the lakeside.
As a PhD candidate, I undertake independent study most of the time. But the School of Film, Media, and Television also equip students with some study courses to further develop our knowledge and skills. My favourite is Media Methodologies.
The PGR Office also offer grants and I received travel grants for my archive visits and for a public engagement event last summer. The Dean of Student's Office supports international students a lot. They have English classes for free (including academic writing), and they organized reasonably-priced trip within UK. Last year, the office held some events for family, so I could take my little daughter to play there.
While pursuing my PhD, UEA also gave me opportunity to work as an associate tutor, and the Student Union also gave me opportunities to work as Fresher Helper on UEA Open Days.
I was told that the Norwich city isn’t that big. But, I explored and had discovered many nice places for budget shopping, namely car booth sales and charity shops and there is also family-friendly charms such as Dinosaurland and Whitlingham Park. When we feel adventurous, my family and I make our way to Norfolk area, embark on a Bure Valley Railway trip where we could enjoy the countryside from Aylsham to Wroxham, or find our way to the beaches. I keep a blog in English and Indonesian that details my life here and shared some guides on living in Norwich. All I can say is Norwich is indeed an enjoyable city!
I am Royce Jonathan Salim, an Undergraduate student who studied Business Finance & Economics in UEA. I have always been interested about Finance and Economics as they allow me to understand the impacts of government's policy and financial market trading in everyday life. The first reason I chose to study in the UEA Economic School is because it is ranked 4th out of all English mainstream university Economics departments for overall satisfaction in 2013 National Student Survey. The second reason is the wide-range optional modules accessible for me. So in my final year, I was be able to choose from foreign language to various specific modules, such as supply chain management and option pricing and financial risk management.
Apart from the academic excellence, UEA has a magnificent campus area and a very sociable student atmosphere, which is why it is the first in the UK in terms of student experience. My favourite spot would be the vast park and lake area surrounding the university. It is a good idea to go around the campus for refreshing after frustrated of studying. Joining societies to be able to make a lot of friends is also essential. Last year, I joined four societies, including Indonesian society, which I enjoyed so much. This year, I joined even more! The exciting thing about joining a society is that you make a lot of locals and international friends, which enables you to learn about other cultures and other countries!
Even though I lived on campus, which I found to be so convenient, I still travelled to Norwich to do some shopping and sight seeing. I never found going to the city troublesome because the public transport system is so convenient in a way that I always enjoyed my visit there. Norwich is indeed a small beautiful city in which historical places, like Norwich Castle and Cathedral lie on. But it is also not a bad idea bring your friends to town for movies, bowling and even football match!
Last but not least, the student support here was so beneficial and helpful. I have found many great supports from UEA during my study, especially the Hub. There was always a variety of support available if you seek for them in UEA. In addition, I was assigned one advisor to turn to if I have any issues in my study so that they can be solved.
In brief, I was grateful that I chose UEA for my one in a lifetime opportunity and I really enjoyed it!
Apa kabar? Selamat datang di kampus UEA. Hello, I am Aidy, a PhD student in the school of International Development.. Before I came to this campus, I had worked for NGOs internationally, for being a lecture assistant, had studied Management and Business administration (Padjadjaran and Parahyangan University), and master in Public Policy (Erasmus University, Netherlands).
The major reason I came to UEA is because their multi-disciplinary approach. By having a wide open space to interact with students from different disciplines and schools, I have the opportunity to challenge my thoughts and ideas, to combine knowledge, methods from different areas of study into my research ideas. The other reason is because their high quality research outcome and impact. According to rae.ac.uk, UEA school of International Development has highly reputable research outputs in the field of development studies. It has also recently received a Queen Prize Award for Sustainable development (2009).
The other reason is because I feel convenient, calm, and safe in UEA Norwich. As a place and a city to live, Norwich city in Norfolk region is a fun and lovely as well as enriching and exciting. The comprehensive campus accommodation, great sport facilities from Olympic size swimming pool to outdoor football field, beautiful and lovely forest and natural scene, contemporary art centre and nearby medical centre give all I need as a student to focus on my study.
While the city and the nearby areas give what I need to enjoy and to relax. Norwich is a classic UK style city with a lot of vintage boutique shop, old style café, bar, merchandise stores, and few Asian food stores, where we can buy kecap ABC, sambal ABC, bumbu makanan, sambal ulek, Indomie. And if you like natural landscape and photography, you will like to be in this region. About 15-20 km from Norwich city, there are many varied outdoor sites from coast, beach, hills, lakes, and old country side cities. To have student price, I join UEA Fell walking club for arranged trip to these places and other places in England, Scotland, and Northern Island.
All of these make me feel home and keep exciting, although sometimes I cannot resist my homesickness. But I can say UEA has great Indonesian students from wide range of age that are very well supporting each other.
You can also contact Royce, our Indonesian student ambassador, to ask about life at UEA.

I am joining the futsal club in here, though I am the only Asian people who's in this club, I feel glad because I can play and mingle with the other club members without any feeling of discrimination.
The information technology system applied in here also helps me a lot in pursuing my master degree, where we can access the information about any facilities or just to see what happen in the campus environment or any other information about UEA where I can access it from everywhere.
Living in Norwich is a great experience for me. I know the homesick feeling will make feel uncomfortable in here, but then I found that this city is a very interesting place, where the modern facilities meet medieval architecture buildings. We can found around 100 of pubs or clubs just to hang out with friends, or malls and stores to buy our needs. And the most interesting fact I found in here that there are some Asian stores around the city where you can have Asian food. And it nice to know that they also sell our Indonesia ingredients such kecap ABC, sambal ABC, bumbu makanan, sambal ulek, Indomie, just to mention a few, that can heal my homesick.
