Ireland: Finola - Masters in Education

I am a Masters student studying Education in UEA. I chose UEA because of its reputation in academic excellence. There is a diverse community of both students and tutors, which allows me to develop my understanding of the globalisation of education. I'm a mature student which at first was a little daunting, but, once I got into the swing of thing, like finding the library, teaching spaces and café I soon settled in.

Academically I feel challenged, but, productive. I have been able to take my own subject knowledge in Design and transfer my theories within an Education environment. Developing my career as an early researcher is really important to me, and this course allows me to do that. Our class represented students come from diverse backgrounds including qualified and unqualified teachers, historians as well as mathematicians. We are able to challenge and create new ideas as well share learning experiences. The structure of the course includes film sessions where we can discuss all media relevant to the course. At UEA there is always someone to help you in your difficulties; whether it is the Professors, Teaching Office, Dean of Student's Office or your Academic Tutor.

It is really amazing to be a post-graduate student at UEA. I decided to swap city life in London to live in the countryside in Norfolk; there is a wealth of interesting people, amazing places to visit and a stunning coast line. Many of my new friends are International from as far away as Hong Kong to Texas with whom I enjoy my time in UEA, Norfolk and in Norwich. With friends I have attended events such as the International Student Party, Department Parties, movie screenings and even festivals in Norwich.  Norwich city itself is ideal; it has an array of diverse cultural places to visit, restaurants from all around the world and large and independent shops. Norfolk is one of the most beautiful counties in the UK and one can also visit a number of historical and beautiful places not too far away from the campus.

As a whole, my time here at UEA so far has been has been incredible
