Netherlands: Nora - Biomedicine

I am Nora Wolff, an undergraduate student in Biomedicine at UEA.

I chose UEA for many different reasons. Before I had seen the university and the city I mostly liked what I had read about my course and their approach to it. Also, the fact that UEA is known to be a good university was something that I found important. When I came to Norwich to go on a campus tour and to take a look at the city around it I was sold! The moment my campus tour started, the environment charmed me and I knew I wanted to live on campus. After my campus tour I went into the city and I noticed that I felt really at home in this city. This was mostly because it felt really friendly to me. Also, I really liked the mixture of old and new buildings that give the city its characteristic feeling.

Now I am in the university, living the campus life, like most first year students do. I live on campus and have really enjoyed it so far. I can find everything I need on campus, but when I want to go into the city centre there are bus stops on campus that will take you there in about 20 minutes. And for the Dutch people that just love riding their bikes; you can even ride a bike in Norwich. Even though, you can find almost everything on campus, going into the city centre is definitely worth it! The city centre is beautiful and has a variety of things to do.

Not just the campus is great about UEA. I also really enjoy studying here. I like how some lecturers really get their students enthusiastic about what they are teaching them. Also, I find it amazing to have a lecturer in front of you teaching you the things that they are actually doing research on. Moreover, there is a lot of help for students available, whenever they need it. This gives me the feeling that the university really cares about the students and wants them to do well (as long as they are willing to work for it of course!).

As a summary of my experience here; I can say that I am really enjoying my course and student life at UEA.
