    To start off, academically, the University is good at providing resources. With a vast library located on campus, students are given 24-hour access to extensive resources. You can also use the library online and access journals and articles. The lectures themselves are pretty good. They always encourage students to email them if they have any queries, and the seminar groups allow them to build a closer relationship with lecturers to ask questions.

    What lets the University down is the social, environmental, and financial aspects. Norwich itself is a quiet city, but there are many shops; however, the University is an hour away by walking, and buses are limited and stop running at 11 pm. As you can imagine, if you like shopping lots, you are limited to the expensive on-campus Spar shop, which sells items for triple the amount, and on-campus cafes, which close at 6 pm. After 6, everything is practically dead unless you go to the Bar, which is again overpriced and overcrowded and gets mundane after a few visits. After living on campus for a while, there isn’t much to do, and all the events die down around winter, leading to my other point. Univeristy lonlieness.

    It’s a common issue in many universities to feel lonely, but this uni in particular, due to the lack of economically friendly activities as the sports are highly overpriced, you’re left stuck in your room or in the library for the most part. It would help if you could walk out of campus and browse through cafes, shops or independent businesses. Still, you are stuck living in a residential area unless you take a 30-minute bus ride to the city, which, again, everything closes around 6, so once you’re done with lectures, there is nothing to do.

    Financially, it is incredibly overpriced for it to be one of the smaller cities in England. With the nearest supermarket, Aldi, being a 40-minute walk with no buses, you’re left to use the on-campus shop again. Additionally, the uni accommodations are so overpriced for what you get. Having lived in Crome Court, one of the fancier accommodations, I found there to be little to no storage space for food, a very uncomfortable dining table, and almost hospital-like decor that makes you feel like you are in an asylum, with all that costing £200 per week. There are no jobs on campus, so you have to apply a year in advance for the next school year.

    For my recommendations, they need to add more activities all year round. When I first started, there was a tent with free cinema nights for people to join and mingle. After two weeks, it was taken down. If they were to continue that all year it would first add more job availability for students to manage. Create a third space for people to chat and create a sense of community.

    Another recommendation is to start introducing more shops on campus. They could partner with independent businesses to have small shops for food,books, clothing, etc.

    A Hub of Excellence and Vibrant Student Life"

    The University of East Anglia (UEA) in Norwich is more than just an educational institution; it’s a vibrant community that I’ve come to admire. Nestled in a city that beautifully blends history with modernity, UEA stands out with its unique architecture, especially the iconic Ziggurats. Academically, it’s a powerhouse, particularly in Environmental Sciences and Creative Writing. But what truly resonates with me is the lively student life, filled with events and activities. The sense of belonging and the university’s eco-conscious approach make it a place I’d proudly recommend. If you’re looking for a holistic educational experience in a historic city, UEA might just be your perfect fit.

    A Disastrous Experience

    As an International student who decided to pursue higher education at the University of East Anglia (UEA), I can confidently say that it was an absolute nightmare from start to finish. I would strongly advise my fellow Indian students to avoid this institution at all costs. Here’s why:

    Discrimination and Cultural Insensitivity: UEA claims to be an inclusive university, but in reality, they treat international students, especially Indians, as second-class citizens. The university administration and faculty members exhibited a shocking lack of cultural sensitivity, This created an extremely unwelcoming and hostile environment.

    Substandard Academic Quality: The quality of education at UEA is abysmal. Lecturers and professors lacked the expertise and knowledge necessary to deliver engaging and insightful lectures. The coursework was outdated and failed to provide a comprehensive understanding of the subjects. Indian students were constantly overlooked and given minimal support or guidance, which severely impacted our learning experience.

    Negligible International Student Support: UEA boasted about its support services for international students, but it was all a façade. When we needed assistance with visas, accommodation, or even basic administrative procedures, the university staff were unresponsive and unhelpful. It felt as though they were intentionally indifferent to the challenges we faced as foreign students.

    Limited Social Integration Opportunities: UEA failed to foster a sense of community among Indian students and the wider student body. There were no dedicated cultural clubs or events to help us connect with other Indian students or engage with the local community. We were left feeling isolated and disconnected throughout our time at UEA.

    Exploitative Tuition Fees: Despite the subpar education and lack of support, UEA had the audacity to charge exorbitant tuition fees. Indian students, who already face financial burdens due to exchange rates and living expenses, were further exploited by this unjustified pricing structure.

    Poor Career Prospects: UEA’s career services were utterly ineffective in helping Indian students find suitable employment opportunities after graduation. The university’s reputation was far from impressive, and employers showed little interest in hiring graduates from UEA. This made the already challenging task of finding employment even more daunting.

    Overall, the University of East Anglia proved to be a disaster for Indian students. The discriminatory environment, substandard academics, lack of support, limited social integration, exploitative fees, and poor career prospects make this institution an absolute nightmare. I strongly advise prospective Indian students to explore alternative universities that prioritize inclusivity, academic excellence, and genuinely support their international students.

    Lack of detailed feedback to the business school

    The university teaches to an extremely high standard, all lecturers are very informative and provide you with learning materials both prior to and after lectures. However, a downside I have found to the university, is that in the business school they have said there are too many students to be able to give detailed feedback. This means for a 2000 word essay, you may only get one sentence of feedback which I find limiting as I don’t know how to improve. They also will not give you more feedback upon request as they say it is unfair to others.

    UEA - a labyrinthine of art and culture

    In my opinion the University of East Anglia is much more than an academic institution. At the heart of a bustling and busy Norwich City, UEA drew me in with smiling faces, expansive campus grounds and a myriad of extra-curricular activities. I also found my dream degree with a combination of two subjects I have become quite passionate about, despite my personal, initial reservations. As a result of taking Media and International Development, I have learned so much about how (as an example) mainstream media and other media forms affect and are received by the global population regardless of social or physical differences. However, that is just a glimpse of what is possible here. Outside of academics, I was also able to use my love for and new understanding of Media and Development to kickstart a merchandising business featuring my own graphic designs, where I aimed for the proceeds to go to a charity or NGO of my choice. Furthermore, UEA’s societies are endless and cater to whatever interests you may have, you even have the option to suggest ideas for new ones too! For me personally, I loved the baking, dodgeball and cheerleading groups where I was able to fit exercise and creative fun into busy weeks of lectures all while making so many friends. I also quickly fell in love with the nightlife in the university and Norwich as a whole; having met so many different people from all over the world let alone the UK in the LCR/Hive. For anyone passionate about media, arts and film, I would definitely recommend the University of East Anglia, look forward to having the experience of a lifetime!
