Hello there! My name is Delia, a second year Film and American Studies with a year abroad included and I am the Romanian Student Ambassador of 2014-2015. Having a young fascination with films I have volunteered for the Golden Island International Film Festival in Cyprus and I am currently part of Make Media video production company based at the University.

I chose to study a Film degree at University of East Anglia (UEA) because it is the 6th place of the UK university rankings on Communication & Media Studies and was voted the best UK university for student experience in the Times Higher Education magazine. Moreover, my experience at UEA has created greater insight into how media industry works and made me believe that dreams can easily come true. UEA provides cutting-edge research facilities, state-of-the-art technological equipment and allows the students to discover their passions through the Union - a charity run by Student Officers that aims to help you get the most out of your time at UEA. The Union provides professional support and advice on academic, welfare and housing issues as well as running over 160 Student Societies and 60 Sport Clubs. The most fundamental thing you need to know if you are coming to UEA is: no matter what traditions you have, what kind of passions and leisure activities you like to do – there is something for everyone here.

Personally, one of my favourite aspects as a student is that you are not limited to your course and school. You are constantly invited to different school of studies events meaning that you can always broaden your horizons and develop your knowledge. Academically speaking, the learning and teaching style is interested in encouraging students to develop individual study skills and are often asked to work in group situations.

In addition, Norwich is one of the most beautiful and attractive cities from Europe, being ranked in the Top 10 shopping cities in the UK and offering an outstanding quality of life. There are plenty of landmarks in the city such as two cathedrals, an open-air market, over hundreds of churches and a Norman Castle. Also, it is 10 minutes way by bus from the campus, 2 hours' drive to London and half an hour drive from Norfolk sandy beaches.

Finally, I encourage you all to be brave and see for yourself what life is at UEA and consider the advantages for being a student here. 

Salutare! Numele meu este Delia, sunt studenta in anul doi la Film si Studii Americane cu un an in strainatate inclus si sunt ambasadorul studentilor romani in anul universitar 2014-2015. Fiind de mica fascinata de film, am fost membru voluntar in cadrul Festivalul International de Film Golden Island din Cipru si fac parte in prezent din echipa Make Media, o companie de productie video in cadrul facultatii.

Am ales sa studiez in domeniul filmului la Universitatea East Anglia (UEA) pentru ca este a sasea din topul universitatilor din UK pe domeniul Comunicare si Media si a fost votata cea mai buna universitate din UK pentru experienta ca student in revista Times Higher Education.  In plus, experienta mea la UEA m-a facut sa realizez cum functioneaza industria media si m-a facut sa cred ca nu e atat de greu sa iti indeplinesti visele. UEA este echipata cu facilitate de cercetare innovative, tehnologie avansata si permite studentilor sa isi descopere pasiunile prin Union – o fundatie de caritate condusa de studenti cu scopul de a-ti imbunatati experienta. Union asigura sprijin profesional fie el academic sau personal, ajutor social, sfaturi in legatura cu chiria precum si peste 160 de societati studentesti si 60 de cluburi sportive. Lucrul cel mai important pe care trebuie sa il stii daca te decizi sa vii este ca, indiferent de obiceiuri, pasiuni si activitati pe care iti place sa le faci in timpul liber – aici este ceva pentru toata lumea.

Personal, unul din lucrurile mele preferate ca student il reprezinta libertatea si faptul ca nu esti limitat la cursul pe care il faci. Esti constant invitat la diverse evenimente din afara sferei tale academice menite sa iti largeasca orizontul si sa iti dezvolte cunostintele in orice domeniu. Din punct de vedere academic, metoda de predare incurajeaza studentul sa isi dezvolte abilitatea de a studia atat individual cat si in echipa.

Asadar, eu va incurajez pe voi toti sa fiti curajosi si sa vedeti cu ochii vostri cum e viata la UEA si sa luati in considerare avantajele oferite.

You pay back the Loan once you have finished studying and earning over £21,000 a year. Find out more information on student finance.
