West African Student Ambassador

I am Karen Boakye-Danquah, second year student of Pharmacology and Drug Discovery. I am the new International Student Ambassador for West Africa. I made a decision to study at UEA because they gave me another opportunity to achieve my goal. UEA offers a variety of foundation year courses which once again created a career pathway for me. Moreover, the university’s School of Pharmacy is one of the best in the country as well as ranked 12th for overall academic excellence by the United Kingdom university league table.
Starting university was a new chapter in my life hence I had to make sure whatever decision I made would have a positive outcome. UEA being ranked very highly for student satisfaction also meant that the school really had the interest of their students at heart hence I didn’t hesitate to note that down. I have been at UEA for three years now and the university does take the opinions of its students into consideration. During my applicant day visit to the university, I was informed about the 24hour access to the library and truly they have not let me down. 
UEA is always keen on supporting its students hence the SSS (Student support Service) previously known as the Dean of Students are available via appointment to give any form of assistance either academic or financial. The lecturers also have one to one contact with students for academic assistance while each student has an academic advisor to guide their decisions at university.
Furthermore, UEA takes their student survey into consideration. Although, the university had lots of reading spaces available in the library, the library becomes very packed during exams window hence other students struggled to find somewhere to study but the university has currently undergone construction to solve this problem. Likewise, another reason why I love the university.
Above all, the UEA campus has everything you need to help you settle in but Norwich City itself has fantastic shops, restaurants, cinemas and many more. Likewise there is also a medical centre on campus
Moreover, most international and home students seem to enjoy their studies in UEA and love the city itself. UEA has the best facilities, both educational and sporting.
I believe, whether you are an international or home student UEA has measures in place to make you feel at home. You feel loved and cared for! The bunny rabbits on campus seem to excite people too.
