Meet Your Ambassador
Hi everyone, my name is Christopher Richardson, and I’m a 3rd year BEng Energy Engineering student. I grew up and studied in Malaysia all the way up to A-Levels before deciding that I wanted to see more of what the world had to offer. I ended up choosing to study at UEA for many reasons; the eye-catching architecture, the great reviews and rankings, as well as the good scholarship opportunities available at the university.
Two and a half years later, I can honestly say that studying overseas has been a profound experience. The maturity and independence that comes with living in a whole new part of the world is invaluable, as are the friends and fun times I’ve had.
UEA places a lot of importance on student satisfaction and wellbeing, with designated advisors, the option to schedule meetings with lecturers outside classes, and even designated wardens to help with on-campus accommodation. The Career Central on campus is also a brilliant place for students to keep up to date with jobs both on and off campus, and me and many of my friends have gotten jobs and internships there. There are also a bunch of different ways to enrich your university life on campus. As a casual swimmer, I most enjoy the Olympic-sized pool in the Sports Park and have headed there for an after-class swim on many an occasion.
One of the best things about being at UEA is living so close to the city of Norwich. It’s a 20-minute bus ride away, and it happens to be a really a nice place to spend the weekend. Personally, I enjoy the fact that while it does have plenty of things to do and see, it never feels too large or foreboding, making navigation especially easy for students who are new to Norwich and the UK. Being away from home as an international student is never the easiest thing to do, but with the right environment and support, it can honestly be a wonderful few years.
If you have any questions about studying at the University of East Anglia then please do not hesitate to contact me via our Facebook page or email at firstname.lastname@example.orgAsk Christopher a question
Anisha Naomi - Law Student
My name is Anisha Naomi, and I’m a former 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.
What are the best bits about life at the UEA?
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.
What are your first impressions of your degree course?
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!
What is it like living in Norwich?
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.
Nicole Fong - Economics
My name is Nicole Fong and I’m a former undergraduate student studying Economics. I first came across UEA at a university fair at a hotel somewhere in Subang Jaya and was pleasantly greeted by Pete Ryan, who sold UEA’s campus and the student experience to me. My first impression of UEA based on the research that I had done made UEA seem like they prioritise student satisfaction and the environment on campus seemed very fun and exciting based on all the events and activities they had to offer. On top of my offer, I was fortunately offered the 50th Anniversary Scholarship which meant 50% off tuition fees for my first year so I was even more excited to be attending UEA.
I am really enjoying my course here at UEA as my lecturers are very supportive, approachable, engaging and most importantly, passionate. Besides lectures, seminars, and workshops, the lecturers organise support sessions and office hours which are fantastic opportunities for students to seek help about material we learn in class. The School of Economics as a whole are very proactive and they do their best to help both students and staff. I am part of the Staff-Student Liaison Committee (SSLC) as a Student Representative and we try to solve problems or feedback given within the school of Economics by both students and staff. The school also organises various events besides lectures such as socials between staff and students, contemporary economic issues lectures, and publishes the Norwich Economic Papers.
Living in Norwich is very different from all the places I have lived in as it is very rural and modern all at the same time. The city centre is very quaint as it feels as if you have stepped back in time and you are walking through Old England which also provides a pleasant environment to study in. Besides that, I enjoy how close the city is from campus and how easily accessible it is by public transport.
Derald Goh - Actuarial Science
I am Derald Goh, a former Actuarial Science undergraduate 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.
