My name is Guro, and I am currently in my second year studying International Development with Social Anthropology and Politics. I chose this course and UEA because it is one of the best in the country, both for the course and for student satisfaction. I visited the campus before I started to study here, and I fell in love with the beautiful nature and with the campus. UEA is not in a city centre, but you can still find everything you need on or around campus. Another thing I love about UEA, is the people and all the different societies and clubs. UEA has everything, from football and rugby to knitting and baking, and the people in the societies are welcoming and friendly. To join societies and clubs is a great way to meet people outside of your own course, and some of my best friends are people I met in different societies.

Another aspect of the student social life at UEA is the Union pub and the LCR. These are both places where people go to meet friends, and it is conveniently placed on campus. The LCR is open every Tuesday and every Saturday, with house and guest DJs, as well as concerts by bands such as Passenger and the Kooks.

UEA has also made studying easy. The library is open 24/7 all year around, and for people who are not that well organized and might need to pull an all-nighter, the helpfulness of the library and its staff is a gift. The UEA staff can help you with anything you need, be it IT, how to reference, maths, student loans and finance or anything else for that matter. The lecturers are very nice and friendly, and if you need any help you can always easily find someone to help you.

It is also easy to head into town. I thought it would be difficult to understand the bus routes, but it could not be easier! Norwich is a wonderful city. Coming from a small town with only 12 000 inhabitants, I was a bit scared to move to a bigger city all by myself. However, Norwich has everything a big city should have, but it still has that small-town feeling. I always feel safe walking around in Norwich, and every time I go to town I find new streets and shops I have not seen before. The city is beautiful and historical, and it has everything anyone could ever need.

When I decided I wanted to go abroad to study, I was a bit intimidated by the whole process, and especially UCAS. Coming from Norway, where I am used to the application process for university being quite straightforward, UCAS seemed more complicated. However, it turned out to not be quite as difficult as I thought. When I first arrived at UEA, I was also scared as to what this strange place would be like. Due to the great way UEA welcomes international students, I soon made friends, and I can also honestly say that UEA is the best thing that ever happened to me. I have learnt a lot about people from different countries, and I have also learnt a lot about myself.

If you have any questions about studying at the University of East Anglia, please do not hesitate to contact me either via the Norwegian Students Facebook page or you can email me at Norwegianstudents@uea.ac.uk 

 

Eg heiter Guro, og eg studerer Internasjonal Utvikling med Sosialantropologi og politikk. Eg valgte dette studiet og UEA fordi det er eit av dei beste i sitt felt i landet og også ein av dei beste skulane når det gjeld fornøgde studentar. Eg besøkte campus før eg begynte å studere her, og eg forelska meg i den vakre nature og i campusen. UEA er ikkje i bysenteret, men du kan likevel finne alt du treng på og rundt campus. Ein annan ting eg elskar med UEA, er folka og alle dei forskjellige samfunna og klubbane. UEA har alt, frå fotball og rugby til strikking og baking, og dei du møter i klubbane er åpne og hyggelege folk. Å bli med i ein klubb er ein flott måte å møte folk utanfor ditt studiefelt, og nokre av mine best vener er folk eg har møtt i ulike klubbar.

Eit anna aspekt av det sosiale studentlivet på UEA er the Union Pub og the LCR. Dette er steder studentar går for å møte vener, og det er plassert mitt på campus. The LCR er open kvar tirsdag og kvar laurdag, med DJ tilhøyrande skulen eller gjesteDJ-ar, i tillegg til konsertar med band som Passengers og the Kooks.

UEA har også gjort studering lett. Biblioteket er opent 24/7 året rundt, og for mindre organiserte folk som kanskje treng å jobbe gjennom ei natt før ei innlevering, er dette eit fantastisk tilbod.  Staben I biblioteket er utruleg hjelpsame. Staben på UEA kan hjelpe deg med det meste, om det så er IT, korleis referere på riktig måte, matte, studielån og finans eller noko anna for den saks skuld. Lærarane er veldig snille og venlege, og om du treng hjelp kan du alltid enkelt finne nokon som vil hjelpe deg.

Det er også lett å reise inn til byen. Eg trudde det ville vere vanskeleg å forstå bussrutene, men det kunne ikkje ha vore lettare! Norwich er ein fantastisk by. Eg kjem sjølv frå ein liten by med kun 12 000 innbyggjarar, og eg var litt redd for å flytte til ein ein større by heilt aleine. Norwich er fantastisk fordi byen har alt ein stor by burde ha, men har likevel den kjensla av å vere ein småby. Eg føler meg alltid trygg når eg går rundt I Norwich, og kvar gang eg går inn i byen finn eg nye gater og butikkar eg ikkje har sett før. Byen er vakker og historisk, og den har alt ein kan trenge.

Då eg bestemte meg for å studere utanlands, var eg litt skremt av heile søknadsprosessesn, og då spesielt UCAS. Sidan eg kjem frå Noreg, er vand med at søknadsprosessar er Ganske rett fram, medan UCAS virka ganske komplisert. Det viste seg i midlertid at det ikkje var så komplisert som eg trudde. Då eg først kom til UEA, var eg litt skremt og nervøs sidan dette var ein heilt ny situasjon for meg. Men mykje på grunn av den fantastiske måten UEA tek imot internasjonal studentar på, fekk eg snart vener, og eg kan heilt ærleg seie at UEA er det beste som nokon sinne har skjedd meg. Eg har lært mykje om folk frå forskjellige land, og eg har også lært mykje om meg sjølv.

Ida

Mitt navn er Ida, og jeg går for tiden mitt andre år på studiet Oversetting, Media og Japansk (BA Translation, Media and Japanese). Jeg valgte UEA på grunn av universitetets store utvalg av studieretninger og fag, idylliske beliggenhet i Norwich, og gode rykte, både for kvaliteten på undervisningen og for høy studenttilfredshet. Studiet mitt lar meg kombinere tre fagområder jeg brenner for, og fordype meg i det jeg er mest interessert i ved å velge blant en rekke valgfag. Undervisningen foregår i små grupper, noe som gir studentene muligheten til å delta aktivt og holde dialog med foreleserne , så undervisningsmiljøet er veldig hyggelig og avslappet. Takket være universitetets mer enn 160 utvekslingavtaler på verdensbasis, har studentene også gode muligheter til å ta deler av studiene i utlandet – jeg kommer til å tilbringe mitt neste år i Japan, og jeg gleder meg masse!

Universitetets campus er et vakkert område, med store grøntområder, en egen innsjø, og de berømte UEA-kaninene! Du finner det meste du trenger i midten av campus, der det finnes en rekke butikker og tjenester, kaféer og restauranter. Biblioteket er åpent 24 timer i døgnet, og studentene kan også bruke Sportsparken, som er det største innendørs idrettsanlegget i Storbritannia. Det finnes over 200 klubber og foreninger for studenter, dedikert til alt fra korfball til karate, og fra cocktails til cosplay! Det finnes noe for alle, og å melde seg inn i en klubb eller forening er en kjempefin mulighet til å bli kjent med folk og å drive med det du er interessert i. Selv er jeg medlem i Japan Society og Scandinavian Society, og stortrives med det. UEA’s studentforening (Union of UEA Students) arrangerer også temafester i The LCR, utestedet/konsertlokalet på campus, samt konserter med velkjente navn som Bastille og The Killers. Det finnes alltid noe å gjøre på campus, og å bo der er noe alle studenter burde prøve. Universitetet leier ut et bredt utvalg studentboliger til gode priser, og å bo på campus har vært et av høydepunktene i min tid som student.

Norwich er en utrolig fin by å studere i – den er akkurat passe stor, har masse historie, kjempegode shoppingmuligheter og et yrende uteliv! Riverside-området er populært blant studentene, med  restauranter, barer og kinoer, og skulle du få lyst til å shoppe har byens to kjøpesentre og butikker av alle slag masse fint å by på. Bymarkedet i Norwich har stått på samme sted i nesten 1000 år, og det er kjempegøy å bare rusle rundt og kikke. Norwich har også en egen internasjonal flyplass, samt gode forbindelser til både London (under 2 timer med tog!) og Stansted flyplass, så å komme seg hjem til ferien er ikke noe problem.

Det å skulle studere i utlandet var litt skremmende i starten, men jeg har forelsket meg helt i Norwich og universitetet. Å dra til UEA for å studere er det beste valget jeg har tatt, og det er jeg ikke alene om å synes – i 2013 fikk UEA 1.plass i Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey. Med andre ord finnes det ingen studenter i hele Storbritannia som er mer fornøyde enn de på UEA!

 

 

My name is Ida, and I’m currently in my second year studying Translation, Media and Japanese. I chose to study at UEA because of its wide range of courses and modules, its idyllic location in Norwich, and its excellent reputation, both for teaching quality and student life. My course allows me to combine three subjects I’m very passionate about, and to tailor my own studies to suit my interests by choosing from a wide range of elective modules. Students are taught in small groups, giving them the chance to be active learners and to interact with their lecturers, and the teaching environment is very friendly and relaxed. Thanks to the university’s more than 160 exchange partners worldwide, students also have great opportunities for studying abroad – I will be spending the next academic year in Japan, and I’m very excited!

The UEA campus is a beautiful environment, with lots of green parkland, its very own lake, and the famous UEA rabbits! The centre of campus has pretty much everything you might need, with a variety of shops and services, cafés and restaurants. The library is open 24/7, and students can use the Sportspark, which is the largest indoor sports facility in the UK. There are over 200 clubs and societes at UEA, dedicated to everything from korfball to karate, and from cocktails to cosplay! There is something for everyone, and joining a club or society is a great way to make friends and explore your interests. I’m a member of the Japan Society and the Scandinavian Society, and it’s a lot of fun. The Union of UEA Students also hosts themed club nights in the LCR, the campus venue, as well as live music acts such as The Killers and Bastille. There is always something happening on campus, and living there is something every student should try. The university offers a wide range of campus accommodation at great prices, and living in halls has been one of the highlights of my time here.

Norwich is a great city to study in – it’s just the right size, with lots of history, great shopping opportunities, and vibrant nightlife! The Riverside area with its restaurants, bars and cinemas is popular with students, and there are two big malls and shops of all kinds and sizes for all your shopping needs. The Norwich market has stood in the same place for nearly 1000 years, and it’s great fun to just walk around and take in all the sights and smells. Norwich is also well connected with an international airport, and transport links to both London (less than 2 hours by train!) and Stansted Airport, so getting home for the holidays is easy.

Going abroad to study was a little scary at first, but I’ve really fallen in love with Norwich and the university. Coming to the UEA was the best decision I’ve made, and I’m not the only one who thinks so – in 2013, UEA came 1st in the Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey. In other words, there are no happier students in the UK than the ones at UEA!

Pernille  

My name is Pernille Stensli, and I studied Business Management, with Ethics and Law, at Norwich Business School. I chose to study at UEA because of the university’s good academic and social reputation, the subjects they could offer, and its location. The motto of the university is "Do Different" and that is exactly why I chose to study here – and I didn't regret it for a second!

In the 11th century Norwich was the second largest city in England, but has today lost that place with its 250,000 inhabitants, which suited me quite well! If you miss the "big city", London is only a couple of hours away. Other than that Norwich is a beautiful and charming city with a lot more to offer than its 32 churches and 2 cathedrals – the city is also listed as one of UK's top 10 shopping cities! Norwich is also home to an international airport, and is only a couple of hours away from the London-based airports, so getting home is never a problem.

On campus there is always a lot going on, and sadly I was not able to take part in it all, but boy did I experience a lot!  I was a member of the International Student Society, the Scandinavian Society, the Management Society, Dance Squad and Tennis, a representative in the Student-Staff Liaison Committee, a representative in the Union Council, and also the International Student Ambassador for Norway. I also had the pleasure to attend many concerts held on campus; amongst others White Lies, Eliza Dolittle, Noah and the Whale, and the Naked and Famous. In other words – it's impossible to get bored on campus!

Una

My name is Una, and I studied BA Society, Culture and Media. One of the many reasons why I chose the University of East Anglia, is the fact that they have a broad selection of courses, and that they had the perfect one for me. The fact that there are so many interesting modules to chose from, gave me the opportunity to shape the course to suit me. I enjoyed the lectures, the variety of students, the library facilities, and the campus itself, which offers good shopping facilities (food, post office, paper shop, book shop, travel shop etc.), a green environment (with rabbits) and friendly atmosphere.

UEA is situated in Norwich, which is a beautiful city in the East of England. Norwich has a lot of medieval architecture, two cathedrals, a castle (now a museum), a large number of restaurants, pubs, clubs and great shopping – there's always something to do! And if you don't want to spend fifteen minutes on the bus, there is a lot to do on campus as well.

The UEA Student Union offers a wide range of clubs and societies, everything from different sports clubs (UEA is known for its Sportspark, which is cheap and offers the opportunity to do pretty much anything) to the Poker-, Geological- and Indian Societies. Personally I joined the International Student Society, the Art Society and one of the choirs in the Music Society. The Student Union also makes sure that there's a lot of other things to do on campus, for example weekly cinema, gigs, a union pub, and themed club nights. It is difficult not to be social and have fun while studying at UEA.

Strictly academically speaking, the University of East Anglia continues to be ranked high by the Times Higher Education. Additionally, the university is known for scoring well on student satisfaction, and it's easy to see why. I would recommend UEA to anyone, not only because it is a great university, but because it is a fantastic experience.
