Southern African Student Ambassador
My name is Ashleigh Nyambirai, I am from Zimbabwe and I’m studying Law here at UEA. I have always wanted to be a lawyer, but what attracted me to UEA is firstly its location. Norwich is nice and peaceful, but also very eventful, you get the best of both worlds. Secondly, not only do I graduate with a good degree, but I am also presented with great opportunities not only as a student, but also after graduation. The best part about studying law at UEA is the fact that while we are being prepared to be global competitors, we are also taught to work together as allies, which is a rare concept when you’re studying such a competitive degree.
In my first year I lived in the INTO Centre. Living on campus was great, especially as a first year student who had never been in the UK before. INTO is full of other International students from all different parts of the world and this made adjusting to the UK life fairly easy.
We were taken on tours of the city and of the country. Our classes were close to our residence so the people at INTO made sure we got involved in as many activities as possible. They encouraged cultural integration. Our differences were embraced and I made most of the friends I have today at INTO and the rest I met playing hockey. I would strongly advise people to stay on campus for their first year, it is worth it.

Zimbabwe: Winnifred - Pharmacy Masters
I'm Winnifred Rose, a Pharmacy Masters student studying at UEA. I am currently in my fourth and last year of my degree. I initially chose to study at UEA in 2010 because I was looking for a course that would include the chemistry content I was studying during A Levels and I was also fond of the biological Sciences. Pharmacy at UEA incorporated all these sciences.
My past three years at UEA have been very productive and enabled me to develop as an individual. I have learned so many skills both academically and living independently. The pharmacy course includes work placements in community, hospital and industry allowing me to apply communication skills and theoretical knowledge I have learned. The course is well structured with lectures, laboratory work, work placements, dispensary sessions, inter-professional learning and problem based learning being introduced from the first year. I have used the Dean of Student's office in the past for maths help and this provides enhanced learning tutorials to students in order to improve their academic performance. The library is very convenient as it is open 24 hours a day and runs academic skill workshops such as academics writing skills which I find very helpful. At UEA there is always someone to help you in your difficulties. I lived in student residences from my first year on campus and there is a resident tutor always on call for support.
Apart from my pharmacy course my social life at UEA is very exciting. I have made many friends on campus in the various societies such as the Art society and many international friends from the residences. I have attended events such as the International Student Party. The city is pleasant with a relaxed atmosphere. Norfolk is one of the beautiful counties in the UK with visits to the broads and seaside within driving distance. I recommend visiting historical and beautiful places close to the campus.
I highly recommend UEA as a place to study and grow as an individual.
