My name is Muqaddam Malik and I am a third year undergraduate reading Politics, Philosophy and Economics (PPE) at the University of East Anglia. My focus for my studies in political economy and the future of Africa economies. I am currently undertaking a dissertation on ‘the Prospect of Regionalisation through Monetary Unions in Africa.’I chose to study at UEA for a number of reasons: firstly, the students – UEA provides a community feeling and I was lucky enough to meet a great group of International students on my first day. The numerous societies and events on campus make UEA a great place to develop a holistic experience where you develop academically and socially. Secondly, the professors, UEA has some of the most approachable and welcoming professors who are experienced and noted in their fields. In the school of Economics, one of my professors was awarded a National Teaching Fellow Award this year and another took a sabbatical to work for the Bank of Greece for a year. It is an exhilarating experience to be taught by such accomplished individuals.
The most important aspect of UEA that I love is the opportunity it provides for you to grow as an individual and engage in as much as possible. In my case, although I study PPE I have engaged with numerous departments and socities at UEA. In my second year I undertook two business competitions; where my team won one (Social Storm) and I was a finalist in the other. At my time at UEA, I have contributed to research in the school of Politics and the school of Economics through filming and data analysis respectively. I was able to do all of this alongside playing football in the Sunday League for the past three years (Winning the Championship once) as well as being elected President of two different societies on campus – the Model UN Society and the International Students Society. Most significantly, UEA has supported my academic drive and helped me to attain a prestigious internship with the African Union over the past summer and I am currently shortlisted for an internship in Brussels for 2018 working with the European Union. Hence, come to UEA if you want to achieve your true potential and to explore what more can be done both in and out of the classroom.
Overall, UEA is an amazing place to study and this is accentuated by Norwich being the perfect student city. It isn’t too big, loud and expensive but it isn’t small, quiet and boring either. Norwich has a great cultural history mixed with hundreds of delicious restaurants and a handful of great night outs. This is excluding the numerous facilities on campus such as the massive Sportspark, 24/7 Library and the Lake.
We are not currently attending any international study fairs in your country. Please keep checking this page for details of future events.

MA Development Economics
Hello! I'm Lydia, a master's student in the school of Development.
UEA surpassed my expectations. I had various concerns about coming to UEA, from travelling to the U.K, to my accommodation, the weather, and making friends. I need not have worried. There is a genuine friendly atmosphere that is demonstrated by all the staff members. The student union is responsible for organizing all the fun activities and handling the concerns of the student body. Living in residences has been an enriching experience; I have made friends from different cultures and created a new "family". The campus is very culturally diverse and various activities are planned to ensure that there is integration among all the students.
I chose to study Development at UEA because it is a well established course, and also the home of the ODG (Overseas Development Group). The lecturers are involved in world wide research and use their first hand experience. The numerous opportunities offered have kept me fully occupied. There are a ton of clubs and societies to cater to everyone's tastes. I have taken up Spanish on top of my regular course load, and found a job via the Advice Centre which posts local part time and voluntary work.
The beauty of being at UEA is that one is able to dash off to all the excitement of the city, like shopping, exploring the historic Castle, Cathedrals and great variety of pubs and restaurants, and still return to the familiar atmosphere of campus. The Broad (lake) and the open space are picturesque. UEA is also well-known for its modern sports park. There is also the convenience of shopping and banking along The Street, on campus. The Chaplaincy caters to various religions and it is evident that UEA seeks to nurture us academically, psychologically, physically and spiritually.
