Chinese Student Ambassador
Hi guys, my name is Joy Chen and I’m the Chinese Student Ambassador this year. I’m studying Media Studies (BA) in UEA, and this is my third year.
Choosing to study in UEA for my undergraduate degree is definitely one of my best decisions I have ever made in my life!
There are three reasons why I chose to study Media Studies in UEA. Firstly, UEA has a good reputation and high teaching quality in my major. UEA is ranked 13th in the UK by The Times. The majors related to Media and Communication in UEA have been ranked Top 3 in the UK. Secondly, the students’ satisfaction of UEA always ranks among Top 3 in the UK. UEA always provides students with excellent teaching quality, colourful social activities, helpful staffs and facilities, comfortable accommodation etc. Thirdly, UEA is a very friendly and welcoming university.
There are lots of international students in UEA, who are from over 200 countries. All the students and staffs I have met in UEA are very friendly and helpful. At UEA there is always someone to help you in your difficulties, whether it is the Professors, Personal advisors, Teaching Office, International Office, Dean of Student’s Office or Resident Tutor.
In fact, I chose UEA also due to its location. UEA is located in Norwich, which is my favourite city in UK. Norwich is a historical and attractive city. It is recognised as the UK’s greenest city, the safest and most satisfied city for living in the world. It only takes two hours by train to London and has roads and railways connected to other parts of UK. Norwich International Airport has direct flights to Amsterdam, France and other parts of the world.
Apart from my study, I 100% enjoy my social life in UEA. UEA has the excellent Student Union, with various societies, sports clubs, job opportunities, social events and so on. I am the member of the Ballet Society and Yoga Society this academic year, and I attend ballet and yoga classes every week. As an international student who is from China, I can see how UEA provide me with the high-quality, safe, attractive, colourful, reliable, popular and green environment for my study and life.
Welcome to UEA, I am always waiting for you to enjoy the best university life with me.

China: Lei Deng - MSc Marketing (with Pre-Sessional English)
I am Lei Deng, studying MSc Marketing at Norwich Business School. I had a 12-week pre-sessional English course at INTO before I started my master degree at UEA. I found pre-sessional English course helpful in terms of improving my English language skills, as well as preparing myself for academic studies later on.
Pre-sessional English course usually takes the form of small study groups. There were 17 students in my group. I was able to smoothly blend in the atmosphere of group study, whilst receive sufficient attention, guidance and care from my tutors Mike and Jeanne who cared about everyone else just in the same way.
Pre-sessional English course covers listening, speaking, reading and writing of English. My classes ran for four hours every weekday. One tutor taught listening and speaking classes while the other taught reading and writing, so the specialization was clear. Teaching and learning materials were also supposed to be closely related to academic study afterwards. A typical listening class would involve note-taking whilst listening/watching TED videos in which speakers delivered speeches in a reasonable pace. Another learning activity that appeared to help prepare me for master study was seminar discussion. In groups of four, we were required to discuss around assigned topics for a limited time period. Tutors observed us sharing ideas and thoughts, based on which they provided us with comments and feedback. I was also very carefully guided through the process of writing an academic essay.
Pre-sessional English course helped to boost my confidence and at the end of it, I very much looked forward to enjoying my master study. Whilst taking this course, I had the time to get settled before engaging in busy academic study. Even after the end of the course, we continue to gather together with group mates and tutors like a big family. Some groups went to Broads, some groups had students visited their tutor’s house, and some groups had BBQ by UEA lake.
China: Yuhang Li - MSc Accounting and Financial Management
Hi, I am Yuhang Li or Tony for short. I was a postgraduate student of Norwich Business School. I chose UEA as the best choice among all my offers and came here with great pleasure. I definitely made the right decision!
UEA is a bustling university on the east coast of England, well-known for its world leading research on climate change and the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts. A lush green campus next to Earlham Park and just 15 minutes by bus from the city centre make this a great place to study and live in.
My major was International Accounting and Financial Management and I gained a deeper understanding of my subjects through diverse teaching methods. Lectures are state-of-the-art, focusing on the latest issues happening around the globe and combining handouts with practicals. The seminars are delivered to small groups providing you with a great opportunity to interact with your tutors and classmates and making sure that you play an active part in your learning. You can choose from a range of options from the business studies courses. The course leader was a tutor at Cambridge University and taught in world leading financial training institutions for decades. She helped me a lot and gave me greater confidence for taking the ACCA exams.
UEA has various kinds of societies and clubs like Debating Society, Red Cross and Water Aid, offering students many inspiring activities and promoting the integration of international students into the University. Other events around campus enable us to make new friends from all over the world and to find out more about local culture.
The campus provides students with all the services they could need. The library is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with plenty of space for studying and an impressive range of resources. Other facilities, including a medical centre and an accommodation office, are also very helpful.
Living on campus is also a fantastic experience. UEA provides you with at least eight types of different accommodation to choose from. As our supporting team works around the clock, your campus living will be safe and comfortable. If you want to live off campus, UEA will be able to present you with other options to choose from.
UEA is a UK top 15 university (ranked 14th in the Guardian University Guide) and, I think, a fantastic choice to prepare you for your future career.
China: Qian ZhengYi - PhD Film Studies
My name is Qian ZhengYi. I`m a UEA postgraduate student who is doing his first year PhD course in Film Studies. I just finished my Masters Degree in Film Studies here last year and I decided to continue my PhD research. The reason I choose UEA is because of its high reputation in Media Studies and particularly Film Studies. It has a solid academic team with well-known staff and modern facilities to support your studies. There are many opportunities to get involved with the latest academic research in your field through conferences, research projects and film or art festivals. That`s the main reason that I chose UEA to achieve my research goals.
Apart from academic activities, UEA also offers students lots of opportunities for transnational communications. It is an international university where you can get to know people from different countries and cultural backgrounds. During the past year, I have made friends from Greece, America, Germany, Pakistan and other countries. I went to the cinema, concerts and exhibitions with these international friends, which has not only immersed me in British culture, but has also broadened and enriched my perspective on the arts and life The combination of classical culture and modernity is a main feature of Norwich. Here you can appreciate a classical music concert or fine arts exhibition at the medieval cathedral and then watch the latest Hollywood Blockbusters at the IMAX. In addition, if you are a fan of literature, Norwich should be your first choice as just last year, it was nominated as one of the UNESCO cities of literature.
The University also has a great living environment. For the last year I have lived at the University Village, a quiet and neat place for studying and living. Norwich is a historical city with peaceful pace of life and healthy environment. The support systems at UEA are also of a very high standard. If you have any enquiries, they will be swiftly and efficiently resolved by the Dean of Students Office, Union Advice Centre or Library Help Desk.
UEA and Norwich have been so inspirational for me and my studies that I will always recommend them.
