Singapore Student Ambassador

Hey Everyone! 

Hi everyone, my name is Christopher Richardson, and I’m a 3rd year BEng Energy Engineering student. I grew up and studied in Malaysia all the way up to A-Levels before deciding that I wanted to see more of what the world had to offer. I ended up choosing to study at UEA for many reasons; the eye-catching architecture, the great reviews and rankings, as well as the good scholarship opportunities available at the university.

Two and a half years later, I can honestly say that studying overseas has been a profound experience. The maturity and independence that comes with living in a whole new part of the world is invaluable, as are the friends and fun times I’ve had.

UEA places a lot of importance on student satisfaction and wellbeing, with designated advisors, the option to schedule meetings with lecturers outside classes, and even designated wardens to help with on-campus accommodation. The Career Central on campus is also a brilliant place for students to keep up to date with jobs both on and off campus, and me and many of my friends have gotten jobs and internships there. There are also a bunch of different ways to enrich your university life on campus. As a casual swimmer, I most enjoy the Olympic-sized pool in the Sports Park and have headed there for an after-class swim on many an occasion.

One of the best things about being at UEA is living so close to the city of Norwich. It’s a 20-minute bus ride away, and it happens to be a really a nice place to spend the weekend. Personally, I enjoy the fact that while it does have plenty of things to do and see, it never feels too large or foreboding, making navigation especially easy for students who are new to Norwich and the UK. Being away from home as an international student is never the easiest thing to do, but with the right environment and support, it can honestly be a wonderful few years.

If you have any questions about studying at the University of East Anglia then please do not hesitate to contact me via our Facebook page or email at Singaporestudents@uea.ac.uk
