The Learning Enhancement Team offer a range of ways to help students study more effectively and improve their work. Their tutors provide expert guidance on: study skills, mathematics and statistics, academic writing and the use of English. Find out below how we helped Ginnie Lin, a recent MA Applied Translation graduate, improve her degree marks from 52% to 78% within a year.

I have been regarded as the person with good English skills, since I earned my UEA Master’s degree in Applied Translation Studies with Distinction. My degree with distinction, has been my ticket to getting my ideal job. When you are reading this, one question is probably coming to your mind. What was my secret approach to receiving such an outstanding degree award? You are probably guessing that my IELTS score was above 7.0 or my previous academic experience was related to an English major. Unfortunately, you are totally wrong! My IELTS score was only 6.0. In addition, my previous background experience was related to business administration. Obviously, I thought my English was not so good and that there was no possibility of me of being awarded a degree with distinction. However, surprisingly I achieved it. How it is possible? Right now, I am going to uncover my secret approach to improving your English skills within half a year. It is called the Learning Enhancement Team.

Don't be so shy! Just go and ask the Learning Enhancement Team for help!

Personally, the Learning Enhancement Team can be seen as my second supervisor. They enlightened me on how to think critically, which is at the heart of academic study in the UK. In other words, it’s impossible to get a mark of 60% or above without critical thinking. Now, I am going to share my personal experience of ‘improving my mark from 52% to 78%’ rather than scaring you.

I still profoundly remember the day I got back the result of my first assignment. I could not believe what I saw on that coursework coversheet. The mark was just 52% with the message ‘do come and see me to discuss this when you get it back’. At that moment, I felt depressed, anxious, mad, and I did not understand why this had happened to me. I was someone who had already earned an MBA degree in Taiwan. I unwillingly decided to go to see the marker and was ready to fight for my mark. However, after an hour long meeting, I was convinced that I deserved this mark and it was the time to accept a tutorial offered by the Learning Enhancement Team.

The Learning Enhancement Team had a great, positive impact on my future life since then …

Chris Bishop, who was my tutor, tried to improve my critical thinking skills step by step. After meeting Chris twice a semester, I realised that the key to achieving the mark of 70% or above was a different way thinking, understanding and expressing myself rather than the final answer to issues you have dealt with.

Even though I have graduated from UEA two year’s ago, ‘how to think critically’ is the most valuable treasure I have gained from UEA. Last, but not least, the Learning Enhancement Team are not monsters and won’t bite you! Therefore, make good use of them and just go and ask for their help.

MSc Brand Leadership

Hello, I am Josh, a master student studying MSc Brand Leadership. I came to UEA mainly because of the unique course they are offering here, however the overall experience of studying and living here has been great and very rewarding.
As someone who has been working for years, coming back to school was a big decision to make. I want to join a program that can truly be helpful to my career and do it somewhere that I can enjoy my life along the way. MSc Brand Leadership at UEA definitely has them all. MSc Brand Leadership is a niche program that offers practical industry perspectives on branding as well as a chance to engage/network with top practitioners. UEA is a very friendly and pleasant environment. There are many student activities and a fantastic sports centre here so you will never get bored. The city Norwich is not a hectic big city but still offers a great urban atmosphere. Being only 2 hours away from London means that you can easily have day trips there whenever you want, while living in a city with relatively lower cost of living and a peaceful environment.
All in all, I am having a great time here.

Hi, I am Elizabeth. I am currently a PhD student at Art, Media and American Studies School. The main reason for me to come to UEA is because of its excellent research background and supported supervisory team. Besides the academic excellence of UEA, its ideal living environment is another reason why I chose UEA. The campus is surrounded by lots of trees and beautiful grasses and the view of its lake is magnificent. You could take a walk around the lake whenever you have time. You could say hi to our UEA bunnies when you see them on campus. 

UEA accommodation has different types of room selections. To live on campus is a great opportunity to meet students from different nationalities and share our life experiences together. UEA offers a great variety of courses for postgraduate research student which is quite different from other universities. As a postgraduate research student, I have opportunities to partake in weekly seminars, workshops and training programmes that are practical and interesting. I am able to meet other postgraduate research students through various activities that arrange by the school.

Apart from the study, UEA offers a numerous activities for students to participate. Students can meet with their friends at the cafés, restaurants or bars on campus. The Shop on campus offers wide varieties of foods with reasonable price so students can shop on campus if they do not have time to go to the city centre. Norwich is a lovely town with beautiful architectures and I am deeply attracted by the beauty of Norwich cathedrals which are worth visiting. To walk in Norwich is enjoyable. I like walking on the pebble street on Gentleman's Walk. Norwich has four department stores and plenty of independent shops which is a nice place for shopping. I highly recommend you to have a lovely traditional British afternoon tea with your friends at the vintage tea house in the city centre.

MSc Marketing
Dear all,
My name is Zora, currently studying in MSc Marketing of postgraduate level in UEA. I chose UEA because I'm eager to look for the further business knowledge to support my future goal which is to be an outstanding business woman in Marketing field. University of East Anglia provides a series of organised business modules to strength those students which has business background or even none-business background. As I'm a student with absolutely no business background coming here to study business, it is a bit challenge because there are so many useful resource is provided by the lectures, but at the same time, it is the time that learn so much about business field.
My academic life at UEA is full of happiness and productiveness. Living and studying in a foreign country is a very challenge task. It is crucial to be independent to deal with every thing related to personal life and study. For the personal life, there is no problem for me to cook as I've enjoyed cooking before I came here. But dealing with other stuff like Banking issues that would be another situation. I need to be alert with the information so that there will be no any financial problems will be occurred. There's another big difference between the UK and Taiwan is the way of how students study. As a Taiwanese student like me, we're used to stay quiet during the class. But this will lead you to a very difficult process of learning if you studying in the UK. It is believed that providing your own ideas and speak up during the class is an important thing to enhance your study in the UK. In the beginning, it was a very huge problem for me to change the way I use to study in Taiwan, but as the time goes by, I tried to think critically and exchange my ideas with other students in the class. And that had made me improved a lot and I really enjoy it now
Apart from academics, my life at the UEA is very exciting. There are so many societies available and most of them are very interesting and helpful. Moreover, there are lots of International students that you can make friends with and exchange their cultural differences. Outside of the campus, Norwich is a fascinating city where full with joy of shopping and historical tourist sites.
As a whole, my life at UEA is full joy and happiness and it will become the best memory of my life.
