Hello I am Gina Kim and I am currently studying International Development and the Environment in UEA. I did International Foundation course in INTO UEA before coming to UEA, which is the reason I chose UEA to do my undergraduate degree. I loved UEA campus and the atmosphere itself. Also, UEA has a high ranking in the field of Development Studies with well-structured courses in different aspects.

In an academic perspective, UEA has great support system for students to improve students’ academic ability. Firstly, all lecturers are more than willing to help you if you have any questions. I can email them anytime to ask questions or arrange a meeting to discuss my issues, and lecturers organise workshops and seminars to discuss the topic further regularly. In my course, we all have different groups for seminars and workshops for discussion and group projects. Seminars usually have a smaller number of students, which gives each student more opportunity to speak, whereas workshops discuss the topic as a whole. During workshops, I get to think about the topic with specific examples in more depth after the relevant lectures, which I enjoy a lot.


Also, the Student Support Service team (formerly known as the Dean of Students) offers help with essay writing, basic maths, and Visa service for International Students. Having a library open 24/7 is one of the best bits in UEA as it allows me to work at time convenient for me. UEA library also has IT help, group study rooms and printing services available anytime of the day.

What I really enjoy about UEA is that it has more than 200 societies covering different interests and cultures. I joined Korean Society this year and it is a great opportunity for me to meet many people from all sorts of background. Students can join as many as they want in terms of societies or sportsclubs. Sportsclubs here offer a give-it-a-go session for me to try out various kinds of sports including archery, badminton and golf. Also it is really easy to get to know more people on campus with school bars and the LCR offering fun nights for students. 

UEA itself has amazing surroundings with the lake and massive green areas. I really like campus as I feel like it is a very nature-friendly environment and the fact there are loads of bunnies hopping around the campus throughout the year. I love the feeling when I get out of the library and have a walk around the lake, which is perfect for getting some fresh air after doing some work.

Overall, I am enjoying my time here at UEA so far, and I am now confident that I have made a right decision to study hereJ.

If you have any questions about coming to study at UEA please do not hesitate to contact me via koreanstudents@uea.ac.uk


안녕하세요. 저는 UEA에서 국제개발학과 환경을 공부하는 김지윤 (Gina) 이라고 합니다. 저는 UEA 를 오기 전에 INTO UEA에서 국제학생들을 위한 파운데이션 과정을 마쳤습니다. 파운데이션 코스를 밟는 동안 캠퍼스와 학교의 자유로운 분위기에 큰 매력을 느꼈고 결론적으로 제가UEA를 고르는 데 큰 영향을 미쳤습니다. 또한 UEA는 제가 공부하는 개발학 분야에서 명성이 높고 커리큘럼이 좋았습니다. 그 뿐 아니라UEA는 영국 내 대학 랭킹에서 늘 15위에 안에 들며 학생만족도는 1위를 합니다.

학문적으로, UEA는 훌륭한 학생 지원 시스템을 갖고 있어 각자가 가진 능력을 발휘하게 해줍니다. 지도 교수님을 비롯 모든 교수님들은 언제나 이메일로 소통할 수 있습니다. 고민이 있거나 질문이 있으면 교수님께 언제든 메일을 보내서 미팅을 잡고 얘기해볼 수 있습니다. 정기적으로 모든 과들이 세미나와 워크샵을 진행합니다. 세미나와 워크샵을 통해 제가 강의를 얼만큼 이해했는지 알 수 있고 강의의 주제에 대해 더 자세히 토론해볼 수 있기에 유용합니다. 제가 공부하는 과목은 세미나와 워크샵을 하는 그룹을 각각 다르게 묶어서 토론과 프로젝트를 진행합니다. 세미나는 워크샵보다 적은 인원으로 구성되어서 각자의 생각을 나눌 수 있는 기회를 제공하고 워크샵은 주제를 전체적인 맥락에서 파악합니다. 학생지원팀은 에세이 작성과 수학은 물론 비자 관련 업무를 지원해줍니다.

우리 도서관은 연중무휴로 24시간 운영되어 필요할 때 언제나 이용할 수 있습니다. 도서관에는 그룹 스터디 룸이 있고 IT 지원과 프린트 서비스가 있습니다.

UEA에는 200개가 넘는 소사이어티가 있어서 관심분야에 따라 많은 활동을 할 수 있습니다.

저는 코리안 소사이어티에 들어와서 즐겁게 활동하고 있습니다. 학생들은 소사이어티와 스포츠 클럽을 제한없이 가입할 수 있습니다. 스포츠 클럽은 양궁, 배드민턴과 골프 등이 있고 체험 수업을 거쳐 가입할 수 있습니다. 학교 내에 있는 바와 LCR에서 친구들과 만나기도 합니다.

UEA는 호수와 녹지공간이 멋진 자연친화적인 캠퍼스를 갖고 있어서 캠퍼스에서 뛰노는 귀여운 토끼들을 볼 수도 있습니다. 공부를 마치고 도서관을 나와 호숫가를 산책하면 기분이 상쾌해진답니다.

저는 UEA 를 선택한 것에 아주 만족하며 이곳 생활이 즐겁습니다.

South Korea: Young - PhD Marketing

Hello everyone!

I'm glad to meet you on this University of East Anglia international students' website. I am Young who has been studying in B2B relationship marketing at Norwich Business School (NBS).

Until now, not many people in Korea may are familiar with the University of East Anglia. Neither was I. In fact, when people decide to study abroad, the main factors considered could be research network, relationships with researchers including supervisors (particularly, for postgraduate students), university's support for students, the safety and convenience of the city and the future career after graduating from the university. In the light of my experience at UEA and in Norwich, I think my decision to study in UEA was the best for me. Fortunately, I have got a NBS studentship for all PhD processes. I think each school including NBS tries to give chances for international students to study in UEA. If you plan study in the UK, why do not try to apply for UEA with UEA studentship? Additionally, Norwich is one of safest cities in the UK. Besides, there are new big shopping malls in Norwich city centre, so you can feel the convenience of shopping just like Korea.

UEA campus has many benefits. First, it is a campus-based university. It is very convenient because you can find a food store, coffee shop, post office, book store and more on campus. Second, the campus is like a park where you can feel the change of seasons and be communion with the nature. Third, the campus is next to a park area and lake so it offers a variety of facilities which can make your campus life better. For instance, the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts which has held exhibitions; the Sports Park which is the biggest university indoor sports centre in Britain and has an Olympic-sized pool, climbing wall, athletics track, gym and an extensive range of sports and leisure activities.

I wish you all the best. Hope to see you at the University of East Anglia soon!!



이곳 University of East Anglia (UEA)국제학생회 홈페이지를 통해서 여러분을 만나게 되서 무척 반갑고 기쁩니다. 저는 UEA의 Norwich Business School (NBS)에서 기업관계 마케팅 (B2B Relationship Marketing)을 연구하고 있는 김영아 입니다.

아직까지 한국에서는 UEA 또는 Norwich 가 낯설게 느껴지시는 분들이 많을 것이라 생각됩니다.  저도 이곳에 오기 전까지는 그랬으니까요. 사실, 유학을 결정하면서 가장 많이 고려하게 되는 것들은 대학의 연구 분위기 및 연구 네트웤, 지도교수와의 관계 (특히 대학원 과정), 학생들에 대한 대학의 지원, 도시의 안전성 및 편리성, 대학 졸업 후 진로에 관한 부분들이 아닐까 생각됩니다. 저의 UEA에서의 경험에 비추어보면, 이런 면에 있어서 저에게는 최선의 선택이었다는 생각이 듭니다.  운좋게도 저는 Norwich Business School 학생장학금 (NBS studentship)을 받았습니다. 경영대학을 비롯해서 UEA의 모든 단과 대학들은 국제학생들을 위해서 장학금을 주는 기회를 많이 갖고 있습니다. 영국에서 공부할 계획이 있으시다면, UEA에 지원해서 장학금도 받고 공부할 수 있는기회에 도전해 보는게 어때요?

또 한가지 덧붙여서, Norwich는 영국 내에서 가장 안전한 도시 중의 하나입니다. Norwich의 현대적 쇼핑몰에서는 한국과 같은 구매의 편리함을 느낄 수 있습니다.

UEA는 계절의 변화와 생명의 소중함을 그대로 느낄 수 있는 공원 같은 대학교 입니다. 호수나 공원과 어울어져서 자연과 함께하는 캠퍼스내에는 다양한 편의시설도 갖추어져 있어서 캠퍼스 생활을 더욱 풍요롭게 만듭니다. Sainsbury Centre for Arts에서 새로운 문화를 만나기도 하고, 영국 내에서 가장 큰 indoor sports centre라는 Sports Park에서 운동을 하면서 심신을 단련할 수도 있습니다. 

늘 건강하고 행복한 하루 보내세요!!!
