Thai Student Ambassador
My name is Sukontee Pringsulaka, a fourth year student studying Medicine at the University of East Anglia (UEA). I have chosen to study at UEA due to a variety of reasons; not only that the university provides a very engaging academic and extra-curricular experience but the city itself is also very appealing to live in. Both have contributed to a very enjoyable university experience. UEA has a great academic ranking substantiated by being ranked in the UK Top 15 (The Times/Sunday Times 2019 & Complete University Guide 2019), World Top 200 (Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2019) and Gold (Teaching Excellence Framework 2017-2020).
There is a wide range of facilities that caters for and is accessible to everybody at UEA, this includes; the 24/7 library, Sportspark, Student union shop and café, an on-site bank and numerous bars. With regards to accommodation, the university offers flats for first years. This provides a platform to build friendships and overcome potential problems with other students who may be experiencing the same things. In addition, living off-campus in Norwich can be a good experience to have; although there are added responsibilities, it is also a chance to have fun with friends and enjoy your independence. Norwich is one of the safest cities in the country, which has made me feel safe during my time living here.
The Medicine (MBBS) course at the UEA has been both an enjoyable and challenging experience, which I consider to be more balanced compared to others in the country, with clinical exposure from the first year of study, frequent cadaveric dissection classes and informative lectures/seminars. This variety of experiences make the course very engaging. Sufficient support is always available if needed from the university. In addition to academics I have also participated in a lot of other social activities during my time here; regularly playing badminton with friends and the Badminton Society, participating in the annual Thai sporting event involving Thai students from UK universities (Sammagi Games), as well as taking part in various medical societies. Joining societies has enabled me to expand my social network and interact with other people from different courses.
