Laura Matiukaite

BA Film and Television Studies

My name is Laura Matiukaite and I am currently in the final year of my Bachelor degree of Film and Television Studies. While making my final choice, two years ago, the things which had the biggest importance for me were high academic level, variety of social prospectus, and safety – UEA was able to offer me all these things, so I was far from hesitant in making my decision to come here.

After being here for more than two years I still think that I could not have chosen a better place for having this wonderful life experience – being a student. I have found what I expected and probably even more. Excellent facilities offered by academics and University itself including the biggest indoors Sports Park in the country, impressively looking four floor Library and uncountable number of clubs and societies to join. The greatest thing about UEA is that whatever you are interested in, it can be sports, art or politics, you will always find a society for that and will be able to make lots of likeminded friends. There is also a society which unifies all international students and helps students from abroad to feel welcomed.

Next year, University of East Anglia celebrates its 50th anniversary. During 50 years of hard work by academics, our University has achieved national and international success. Due to its academic achievements and high ratings of students satisfactory it became widely recognised all around the world. Nowadays UEA is in the top ten universities in the world for students satisfaction and in the top two per cent for its academic level.

The attractive and unique campus of University attracts hundreds of students every year from all parts of the world. Independent studying is a very important part in UK Universities so the UEA Library, which is open 24 hours, provides you with the opportunity to do your research and use books, how best the time suits you. The Library was renovated recently so all facilities including the building itself are new and modern. Large IT areas with printing facilities located in floors 0 and 1 are great places to be productive and finish your assignments. The rest of the campus facilities provide satisfaction to all student needs and help make UEA a great place for being a student.


Laura Dauksyte

International Development

Hi, I am Laura, an undergraduate student studying International Development with Social Anthropology, Politics and Overseas Experience at UEA. I have decided to study here, because UEA International Development course has an excellent reputation. Additionally, not many other universities that have International Development course offer Development Work Experience Module. It is a module that enables students to go to developing countries for a placement or an internship. For my placement I went to Tajikistan which allowed me to see how theories I have learnt in the classroom relate to the real world. Students that are on my course come from many different countries around the world. This allows me to learn more about various cultures that I otherwise would not have encountered.   

UEA library is a crucial part of my student experience, as I prefer to study at university. The library is very convenient, because it is opened 24 hours every day. It means that I can go there whenever I have free time. There is a lake near the library. It is always nice to go for a walk around the lake to clear your head after a long session of studying. Alternatively, I sometimes like to relax and have a drink at the Union Pub with my friends. Sportspark is another important place for me on campus. It has all the best facilities for a cheap price. I like to go there for a swim at the Olympic size pool or a session of step aerobics. UEA also offers a wide a range of clubs and societies. For example, I am a member of International Students Society that often organises social events for International Students.

City of Norwich has a very pleasant and welcoming atmosphere allowing me to fully enjoy my student experience. Furthermore, there are jobs available for students in the city. For instance, I used to work at a clothes store in the city centre last year, while this year I am working at the bar.

Overall, I really enjoy studying at UEA and living in Norwich.
