Malaysian Student Ambassador
My name is Anisha Naomi, and I’m a third year Law student. I first heard of UEA through my university back home under a transfer programme. Torn deciding between two universities, after much research and going through reviews (mostly by my parents), I was highly impressed by the statistics and satisfaction level, not to mention UEA’s ranking.
After making the choice of coming to UEA, I'm so glad to say it’s one of the best decisions I've made. At UEA I quickly realised how their main priority is student satisfaction and pushing the students to reach their best potential, at the same time giving them the best university experience. Another factor that was key to us was safety, Norwich being within the top 10 safest places to be a student. Law isn’t easy, then again what course is. However, the lecturers are so passionate and invested in making sure we do the best we can and that they help us get there. They were helpful with any questions and queries never making anyone feel small.
Academics aside, I fell in love with UEA more and more everyday due to various reasons from the absolutely breathtaking campus, the diversity and the various amounts of clubs and societies available. There’s really something to cater to everyone’s fancy. The UEA campus is like a little quaint city centre on its own. It was clear that convenience was key here as students now can find everything such as multiple cafes to satisfy your daily caffeine needs, laundrettes, 24-hour library, the ever famous LCR, the medical centre, the reliable campus kitchen, bus stops running to town and much more!
I think I was mostly impressed with the people here, from lecturers to students. The Student Union is always ready to listen to whatever problem you may be facing or whatever project ideas you have! At UEA everyone is free to express themselves and I think that’s a major part of the university experience as it helps you find yourself, as well as mould and prepare you to transition into the working world. Speaking of work, another feature which caught my eye was the career central which exposes students to various job opportunities, albeit internships, training contracts or actual future jobs. I’m a member of the Law Society and together with career central they organise various talks, drop in sessions and internships for students. Besides jobs, the International Student Advisory Team (ISAT) also organises activities and trips for students to capitalise on their time here.
Norwich really is a picturesque city, from the gorgeous buildings, cathedrals and charming little cafes to the Norwich Market (home to great street food) and various knick knacks. Also lying in the heart of these coloured tents is an Asian store, which I frequently find myself in to satisfy my Malaysian food needs.
Being a huge family person I feel like all these factors have made being 14 hours away from my family and friends doable! If there’s one thing that’s noticeable about UEA it is the homey welcoming spirit that you get from everyone. Thinking about it, I’m filled with mixed feelings as I'm glad I would be graduating soon (and would be done with late night exam preparation), at the same time, this also means I would be leaving UEA, and it truly is with a heavy heart. However while I'm here, I truly do intend on making the most of my time here.

Malaysia: Maggie - BA Art History and Literature
Hello! My name is Maggie Tan and I'm currently a MA student studying Art History in the School of World Art Studies and Museology. I came to UEA with a background in graphic design and my course gives me the flexibility to study what interests me! I have great lecturers and most of my time is spent at the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts.
I'm the Publicity Officer for South-East Asian Society which hosts lots of great events – plenty of Asian potluck dinners, people to meet and daytrips all year round! The best part about studying in UEA would definitely have to be the people I've met from the UK and all over the world. Whether we're cooking together, going to the union pub or wandering about Norwich – these are the experiences I've learnt the most from!
Malaysia: Adibah - LLB Law
I am Adibah, a third year LLB Law student from Malaysia. I chose to study at the UEA primarily because of its high ranking reputation and its campus-based style.
It is not a hassle to travel between lectures and seminars on time as the faculty buildings are close to each other. The facilities in the UEA are excellent as well, being one of the youngest universities in the UK. The computing system, for example, has always been aligned with the technology progression, which produces great convenience to the students.
Furthermore, UEA is also situated in a strategic location. There are numerous student-housing areas located within 15 minutes walking distance from the campus. The students find this accommodating especially during snow weather. The Norwich City Center offers an adequate entertainment experience. Apart from it being safe even at night, the city has a range of branded shopping outlets and plenty of restaurants serving international food. I often find it comforting knowing that I could grab a Chinese takeout whenever I start missing food from home. There are also clubs and pubs for those who prefer the nightlife. It is worth noting that the university Union societies frequently host club events, which serves as a good start for those who would like to expand their social networking.
It is also advisable for Malaysian students to join the UEA Malaysian Society. The Society does not only comprise of Malaysian students but other international students as well. The Malaysian Society frequently hosts social food events, particularly to cure our inevitable cravings for home food.
UEA has given me experiences I believe I could not have had anywhere else. I have also gained a lot of friends from all over the globe. I look forward to welcoming new Malaysian students and I will be around to assist you in making your student life here great.
Saya Adibah, pelajar Sarjana Muda Undang-undang tahun akhir dari Malaysia. Saya memilih UEA kerana reputasi yang tinggi kedudukannya dan gaya berasaskan kampus. Perjalanan di antara ceramah dan seminar sangat mudah kerana bangunan fakulti terletak berhampiran antara satu sama lain. Kemudahan di UEA juga sangat cemerlang walaupun ia adalah salah satu universiti termuda di UK. Sebagai contoh, sistem komputernya sejajar dengan perkembangan teknologi. Ini menghasilkan kemudahan besar kepada pelajar-pelajar.
Tambahan pula, UEA terletak di lokasi yang strategik. Terdapat banyak kawasan perumahan pelajar yang terletak dalam 15 minit jarak perjalanan kaki dari kampus. Ini memudahkan pelajar terutama semasa cuaca salji di mana semua pengangkutan utama mungkin terpaksa dihentikan. Bandar Norwich juga menawarkan pengalaman hiburan yang mencukupi. Selain tahap keselamatannya yang tinggi walaupun pada waktu malam, bandar ini mempunyai pelbagai pusat membeli-belah yang berjenama dan restoran yang menghidangkan makanan antarabangsa. Ini menyenangkan saya apabila saya mula merindui makanan rumah. Pelajar-pelajar yang lebih menyukai hiburan malam, mereka boleh mendapati ada kelab-kelab dan pub di bandar itu juga. Kelab-kelab persatuan universiti juga sering mengadakan acara kelab, yang berfungsi sebagai permulaan bagi mereka yang ingin memperluaskan rangkaian sosial mereka.
Ia juga dinasihatkan untuk pelajar-pelajar Malaysia untuk menyertai Persatuan UEA Malaysia sebagai permulaan. Persatuan ini tidak hanya terdiri daripada pelajar Malaysia tetapi pelajar antarabangsa yang lain juga. Acara-acara makanan sering diadakan sebagai penawar kepada mereka yang merindui makanan tempatan.
UEA telah memberikan saya pengalaman terbaik dan tidak boleh diraih di mana-mana lain. Saya juga telah mengenali ramai kawan-kawan dari seluruh negara. Saya ingin mengalu-alukan pelajar Malaysia baru dan saya sentiasa disini untuk membantu.
