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.

MA Economics - International Business Economics
My name is Chong-Loong and I am currently an Master of Arts student studying International Business Economics in the School of Economics. One of the reasons why I like the UEA so much is simply because you get to study in a good (high ranking) university combined with the fact that there are so many students from numerous countries all across the globe. Throughout the duration of my course at UEA, I met a lot of new friends and I am very sure that these will be my best friends for the rest of my life.
My lecturers [from the School of Economics and Norwich Business School] are very experienced and most importantly, they are extremely helpful. This allows me to learn at a comfortable pace while still being able to grasps and fully understand the content of every single module that I take.
For me, Norwich city has the perfect combination of being a beautiful and safe place to live in and also sufficient amount of nightlife for those who prefer the "buzz" of pubs and clubs. I like the fact that there is a castle in the city centre and in addition to that, Norwich has several cathedrals, some of which are over 900 years old.
My advice for Malaysian students would be to join the UEA Malaysian Society as soon as you have the opportunity to do so. Being one of the founders of "our" society, I would like to see all Malaysian students get together more often. Bear in mind, most of our activities includes traditional Malaysian food, such as nasi lemak, roti canai, chicken rice, kuih bakar and teh tarik. I look forward to meeting all Malaysian students, especially new students.
BSc Environmental Earth Science
I got to know UEA through INTO Higher when I decided to come to the UK for my foundation program. Norwich is one of the city nearer to London and deemed the safest city to live in, and that convinced me to study here. Since the first week of arrival, I can feel that Norwich is a very safe neighbourhood. I like the fact that UEA is a closed campus and not scattered around, unlike other city campuses. The university accommodation is also very nice and I like the design of the rooms and kitchen.
The School of Environmental Sciences is a broad-discipline school with lecturers and researchers from different fields coming together and providing us research-specific lectures. I enjoyed the lectures and especially the field trips around the UK. I recently had a geoscience field course to Ireland and it was the most memorable field trip so far. I had the opportunity to see geological features which I normally only learn and see through textbooks and the experience was amazing!
Norwich offers one of the best shopping experiences in UK. I love the fact the department stores are so near to each other and I can always get the best fish and chips from the famous Norwich Market! You can find a lot of cheap eats around the city if you spend some time to hunt them down.
Life in Norwich is definitely different from living in the bigger cities and I would say that the study environment is definitely better than elsewhere. Whilst you're still at it, enjoy your student life and do not take them for granted as these moments will be the ones you will remember for the rest of your life. This is my final year in UEA and I must say I will miss studying in this university. I have met many people here, and although we might not meet again after upon graduating, I will definitely cherish the memories we had together in UEA.
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!
MSc Climate Change
I found out about UEA while I was searching for the best course in climate change. There were several options but what caught my attention was the fact that the engagement of ENV staffs in many of the ground-breaking climate researches and that they are directly involved in the policy. Knowing that UEA has the best in this field made decision-making easier, and on top of that, the fact that UEA has a Friday prayer facility appealed to me and made significant difference in making my decision.
Classes are nothing short of being interactive and aside from lectures, we learn through field trips, seminars and workshops. I even had a class where the lecturer performed a short theatre, which made learning more fun, enjoyable and really gets the message across. The research skill class is most helpful as it provides the skills required to undertake a dissertation project; it gave me confidence in writing and made me less anxious about assignments. The lecturers are always ready to help and assist.
I came to Norwich with my family and all of us are really enjoying our life here. My son attends school here, and he loves it! Norwich is a beautiful city and great place for kids as there are plenty of parks and green landscapes around. The city is also beautiful which features many historical buildings. On campus, the facilities are good and I was really impressed with the library and how everything is integrated. Sportspark is top class and I also like the fact that everything is a bike ride away and riding bike here is really enjoyable.
UEA provide plenty of support through the Dean of Student Office and supplementary class such as English as Second Language Program is also available to international students.
UEA is a great place not just to study but also to have your family with you. The campus facilities and city is great, and as a Muslim, I don't find it difficult to perform my daily and Friday prayer since praying facility is available on campus.
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.
BSc Acturial sciences
I am Derald Goh, an Actuarial Science undergraduate in my final year at the UEA. I stumbled upon the UEA when I was looking for a foundation programme which could allow me to pursue my actuarial degree. Upon the completion of my foundation year in 2010, I was impressed enough by the UEA and decided that UEA was the right place to do my undergraduate studies. I was particularly drawn to the overall student experience that UEA has to offer, where it has consistently been voted as one of the top in the UK.
The actuarial course is both challenging and rewarding, where I can appreciate how my modules are preparing towards my actuarial career. It also offers a year in industry option, where I spent my third year in an insurance firm in London. During the placement year, I had the chance to apply my knowledge to solve practical issues while developing key skills and competencies to help me secure a graduate job. The lecturers are always happy to assist, whether to understand a difficult concept or to provide feedback on a piece of assignment. Moreover, they are passionate which makes the learning experience very enjoyable.
I find the facilities in the UEA very comprehensive, particularly the Sportspark. It boasts swimming pools, a climbing wall, football pitches and multifunctional indoor courts where I have played a variety of sports. For the past 3 years, I have played for the volleyball team and we occasionally have the chance to travel to other universities for games. Besides sports, I spend my time in various clubs and societies. It has given me the opportunity to meet people of different backgrounds and share our university experiences.
The city of Norwich itself is quaint yet charming. Its size makes it easy to explore on foot, and there's plenty to see and do. I have been to countless local cafes, uncovered the Norwich Lanes, wander around the cathedral and watched football matches at Carrow Road. It has been almost 4 years now and there are still places I have yet to see.
To put it simply, I thoroughly enjoyed my experience here and dread the day when I have to leave.
MSc Information Systems
I had a wonderful time studying in UEA, learning from some of the top speakers and researchers in the field. What I liked most was the enthusiasm of the professors and their passion in the subject field, and how their shared their knowledge and insights with us in lectures. The professors prepared and provided me with helpful study materials, and not forgetting, the excellent learning facilities at the School of Computing Sciences.
I chose to study at UEA to widen my employment opportunities, gain knowledge in my field of interest as well as to experience the thick and thin of living in a foreign country. After all, Norwich is one of the most vibrant and attractive cities here in the UK.
