“UEA has broadened my horizons, on a global scale, and on a more personal and intimate scale.” Nick from Western Kentucky University on studying Literature and Creative writing at UEA.

I began university without a single thought of studying abroad. It was something I never considered, and honestly, something that never interested me.

“Having the opportunity to work with real businesses on a project brings so many additional benefits to the experience” – Jennifer from Deakin University on her time at UEA.

Jennifer visited UEA in December 2017 as part of a group of students from Deakin University, Australia.

“When you’re studying abroad you have to make the most of it; when you have the chance to, grab it with both hands!” by Joel from Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia

I’m originally from Sydney, Australia and I study Psychology at Macquarie University in Sydney. Originally I applied to study abroad in either Switzerland or Denmark, but I was accepted into the University of East Anglia without really knowing where Norwich was. As I’ve just finished my semester at UEA I can say it really doesn’t matter where…
