Lithuania: Laura Dauksyte - International Development with Social Anthropology and Politics

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.
