UEA is a campus based university with a student population of 16,000 and is home to more than 4000 International and EU students from over 120 countries. You can meet our staff and students at various events around the world and in the UK.
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.
