Hello everybody, I am Eugene Zhang Yuting and I am currently a second student in Actuarial Science with a Year in Industry. UEA was my one and only choice when I decided to pursue a degree in UK. UEA offers the most exemptions in the Actuarial professional exams and it has close links with Aviva, who has a headquarter located in the heart of Norwich.
My first impression of the school was how much of greenery it has compared to other institutions. There were trees, bushes and flowers all over the place and there’s even a lake! Not to mention the wide abundance of wildlife as well, don’t be surprised to see colonies of rabbits wondering about in the lush field just beside the lake. Next, it was how friendly the current students and staffs are at towards new students and visitors. You could ask anybody about directions and they would be more than happy to lead you to the location themselves! Another fantastic feature of the school was the convenience of the facilities. Everything is conveniently located in the center of the school: the bank, cafes, supermarket, career central as well as a bookstore. Sportspark is just a 2 minutes’ walk away from the center and it boost a huge number of facilities for the students, staffs and the locals to use. There’s an Olympic sized swimming pool, a fully equipped gym, multiple dance and training studios, 20 badminton courts, 6 tennis courts, 8 lanes 400m running track and so much more!
In my course, there’s not only modules which are required for my profession, there are other modules added as well to provide us with soft skills which is going to help us in our careers. The teachers are extremely dedicated, and they are just an email away when you need help with a question or just a query in general. Have the burning need to look up on something in a book at 3 in the morning? No worries, the UEA library is opened 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and with the special study pods newly built, you can get your privacy and to maximize your study time.
Growing up in Singapore taught me how to adapt in a fast paced environment, that is also part of the reason why I chose Norwich. Norwich is a small city which has a countryside vibe, and this helps me to relax after a tough week at school. Although it is a small city, you will never have a lack of things to do during the weekends. You can bowl, watch a movie, go shopping or even boating at the Norfolk Broads, which is just a short train ride away. There are a few larger cities which are relatively close to Norwich as well, such as Cambridge and London and they are just a single train ride away. Travelling within Norwich is convenient as well, the best mode of transportation would be a bicycle because everything is so close, and a bicycle would get your anywhere you want to go. If you do not wish to exert yourself, there are numerous buses available which are at a short interval of just 5 minutes during working hours.
One of the most important factor is how safe Norwich is. Coming from Singapore, which is one of the safest countries in the world, I felt completely at home walking home from the school at 1am in the morning.
If you are deciding if you should come to UEA, don’t hesitate any further, I guarantee you would have the time of your life throughout your studies in UEA.
