Italy: Hussam - PhD International Development

I am Hussam Hussein, a PhD candidate at the School of International Development in UEA. I chose UEA because I was looking for a PhD programme in the UK, and the reputation of the School of International Development is outstanding, especially for the research centres of my field of interest:  the Water Security Research Centre and the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research. The experience at UEA surpassed all my expectations both personally and academically. Professors are very much accessible and always happy to help in whatever you may need.  To make it even more exciting, every week there are talks with renowned guests in the scientific community on water, development, and climate change. It is a very inspirational environment for a young scholar. Some of the leading scholars are ‘just along the corridor' and are always available for a chat. They are happy to continue the discussions of a seminar after the meeting over a coffee or a drink in the cafes and bars on campus, or over lunch. This is unique as it allows for deepening your critical thinking and academic knowledge in an informal and friendly setting and environment.

The Careers Centre is incredibly useful. They offer services like coaching, mentoring and one-to-one sessions. The Students Union and the societies are excitingly and inclusively transforming the students experience, organising activities, debates, and events that stimulate critical thinking and give opportunities for engaging in the democratic processes of the organisation. They also organise cultural events, music activities, and sports trainings and competitions. Besides, Norwich is a great city to live. Everything you may need is in a walking or cycling distance. There are plenty restaurants and pubs to enjoy the night time, and I must say the ones in the city center are especially charming. If you are keen on outdoor activities, the countryside here can offer some spectacular sights, such as the Norfolk Broads. And overall, Norwich is only two hours away from London, which gives you an opportunity to easily travel there for academic seminars, or simply for spending a weekend in London. I would recommend UEA to any European student looking for a complete change in educational system mind-set and a great British experience.


Ciao! Mi chiamo Hussam Hussein, e sono un dottorando all’ultimo anno presso il dipartimento di cooperazione e sviluppo internationale a UEA. Ho scelto questo programma perche’ questo dipartimento gode di un’ottima reputazione, in particolare i centri di ricerca nel mio campo di interesse: il Centro di Ricerca di Sicurezza Idrica e il Centro di Ricerca Tyndall sul Cambiamento Climatico. La mia esperienza a UEA ha sorpassato tutte le mie aspettative, da un punto di vista sia personale che accademico. I professori sono molto affabili e sempre disponibili ad aiutare gli studenti. Inoltre, ci sono molti seminari e conferenze, con relatori che spesso si intrattengono dopo gli eventi per continuare discussioni con gli studenti bevendo un caffe’ o una bevanda in uno dei bar dell’universita’.  Questo e’ un’ottimo modo per sviluppare un approccio critico, e per sviluppare e discutere questioni accademiche in un modo informale ed inclusivo.

Ci sono inoltre molte altre opportunita’ a UEA, dal Career Centre che offre sessioni e consigli su come sviluppare la propria carriera professionale, tramite seminari, workshops, e sessioni personalizzate; il tutto gratuitamente. L’Unione degli Studenti sostiene le attivita’ degli studenti, tra cui le associazioni studentesche e le associazioni sportive. Inoltre, organizza molte attivita’, conferenze, eventi sociali, dando cosi’ la possibilita’ ad esempio di socializzare, imparare a suonare uno strumento musicale, scrivere nel giornale degli studenti, e fare sport.

Inoltre, Norwich e’ anche una fantastica citta’: non troppo grande, e non troppo piccola. Tutto e’ raggiungibile in bicicletta o a piedi. Ci sono molti locali carini, e Norfolk, la regione in cui Norwich si trova, offre molte opportunita’ per gite fuori porta immersi nella natura. Infine, Norwich e’ a meno di due ore di distanza da Londra, dando cosi’ la possibilita’ di trascorrere giornate o weekend a Londra.
