Mauritian Student Ambassador 


Hello everyone! I’m Krishnee, a fifth year Pharmacy student at UEA. I was born and raised in Mauritius. I am a returning ambassador and this is my third year as the Mauritian International Student Ambassador.

I always wanted to pursue my tertiary studies abroad and during my look out for universities in the UK, I came across UEA. According to the 2015 Student Satisfaction Survey, UEA was rated 1st in Pharmacy Schools in the UK on the quality of our research output. This was when I decided to come to UEA as research is one among my career options. Furthermore, the different scholarships schemes offered by UEA to Mauritian students in various courses are a very good boost to start an amazing career.

As an International student, I was not able to attend an open day or visit the campus. So, coming here for the first time was a complete surprise to me, but trust me when I tell you I fell in love with the campus as soon as I reached here. The warm welcome you get from everyone since day 1 is incredible and was definitely unexpected to me. There were students across campus, helping me with my luggage and directions of where to go. When I first came here, I was quite shy and quiet, but these students were not hesitating to approach me to ask if I needed help. This is how UEA is!

Furthermore, in terms of teaching and academic facilities, UEA provides modern teaching facilities as well as a well-equipped library, which was recently refurbished, with 24hr open access IT facilities. Both the teaching and non-teaching staffs are very friendly and are always ready to help. You are assigned an academic adviser who you can discuss anything from your academic performance to personal matters to them and they will help you however they can or guide you to other support.

I know that it can be hard as an international student to move in a completely new country as I have been through all that myself and understand that everybody goes through it differently. But fear not, UEA is very supportive: there are multiple sources like your academic adviser, the International Office, Student Support Centre, your accommodation Warden and if you still feel like you can’t approach them, you can definitely message or email me! 

To me, UEA in itself is like a small town - it has a shop on campus, 2 bars, an on-campus nightclub, a bookstore, a careers office and lots more!

I hope you find this short testimonial of mine motivating and informative! If you need information or just want to have a chat, please email me at mauritianstudents@uea.ac.uk
