My name is Ashleigh Nyambirai, I am from Zimbabwe and I’m studying Law here at UEA. I have always wanted to be a lawyer, but what attracted me to UEA is firstly its location. Norwich is nice and peaceful, but also very eventful, you get the best of both worlds. Secondly, not only do I graduate with a good degree, but I am also presented with great opportunities not only as a student, but also after graduation. The best part about studying law at UEA is the fact that while we are being prepared to be global competitors, we are also taught to work together as allies, which is a rare concept when you’re studying such a competitive degree.
In my first year I lived in the INTO Centre. Living on campus was great, especially as a first year student who had never been in the UK before. INTO is full of other International students from all different parts of the world and this made adjusting to the UK life fairly easy. We were taken on tours of the city and of the country. Our classes were close to our residence so the people at INTO made sure we got involved in as many activities as possible. They encouraged cultural integration. Our differences were embraced and I made most of the friends I have today at INTO and the rest I met playing hockey. I would strongly advise people to stay on campus for their first year, it is worth it.
Having lived on campus for a year, living off of campus was fine. The main difference is that you are more exposed to Norwich life. Naturally a peaceful city, Norwich does get festive and actually has a lot to offer. The people are friendly and neighbours are polite and understanding. Rent depends on the house you stay in but life in Norwich is not as expensive as other cities. Buses run regularly so you never have to worry about how you are going to get to school and there are 3 different buses that leave you on campus. Norwich is a beautiful place, with picturesque scenery which is complimented by UEA's Lake. I cannot imagine a more beautiful place to live and learn.
If you have any questions about studying at UEA, please contact me via the Facebook link above or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
