Thai Student Ambassador 

My name is Ana Kanhasuwan and I’m currently in first year of the Medicine course here at UEA, having previously completed my education including A levels in Bangkok, Thailand. I primarily chose UEA because of its highly rated student satisfaction as shown in the National Student Survey and also as a Top 15 university in the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide (2015). This was characterized by a unique course structure where small group seminars are emphasized alongside early clinical placements provided for all students. Another major factor that really attracted me to UEA was the modern and progressive mindset the university has. This is something that I felt would prepare me for the ever-changing demands from different industries, which I believe, will facilitate a unique perspective to my career in the future.

My favourite part of studying at UEA has by far been the lifestyle here. Arriving at UEA I was very impressed with the campus atmosphere, the greenery and wildlife on campus grounds were simply stunning. The environment on campus really facilitates peer learning and also motivation to study, for instance there are bookable individual and group study rooms throughout campus which always comes in very handy for group work and exam revision sessions towards exam season.

In terms of transport, Norwich is only 2 hours from London by train and also has its own international airport with flights to Amsterdam amongst other routes providing an option of flying back to Thailand from Norwich without the need for transfer to London Heathrow Airport.


I have found Norwich a very lively city, even though small and self-contained, it never fails to pleasantly surprise me. With art, history and night life there is truly something for everyone to explore. Living in Norwich has been a nice getaway from the busy streets of Bangkok and I am sure that any Thai student from UEA would agree that even though we are far from the comfort of home, there are plenty of amazing Thai restaurants and shops in Norwich that will bring us straight back home any time we miss it.

If you have any queries about applications, campus life or UEA in general please do not hesitate to contact me at thaistudents@uea.ac.uk or through the Thai Students: University of East Anglia facebook page.
