Hello! My name is Shaima'a. I am the Middle East student ambassador at UEA, currently studying Molecular Biology & Genetics at the School of Biological Sciences.
I choose UEA from other universities for its top-quality research reputation, the fabulous campus and its facilities. As well as Norwich being a beautiful small city, considering that's it is one of the safest in UK. UEA is World top 200; European top 100 and UK top 20. It provides a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses taught and supervised by people known for their academic and research excellence. Learning here isn't boring! Besides normal lectures, you get to have seminars, workshops, and maybe lab or field work depending on your course.
Many students from our region tend to have difficulties in English language, so they always have the option to apply to INTO school at UEA. You will be able to take an English course before beginning your studies at UEA. Both undergraduate and postgraduate students can apply for an accommodation at UEA before arriving. There is a range of different rooms that you can choose from, from ensuite to shared rooms. There is a huge range of sport clubs and different societies that you can join and meet with new people who have a mutual interest.
Campus contains a huge range of different facilities, we have restaurants, café's, a pub which are always a good way to socialise and meet up with your friends.
