Don't be deceived by the uni's quite frankly ridiculous claim of the 'highest student satisfaction', because I find that incredibly hard to actually be true. I'll start with the accommodation - absolutely appalling. I am paying 5k a year, to share a tiny kitchen with 12 people. The kitchen consists of 2 microwaves and no oven, with absolutely minuscule cupboard spaces. It is even hideous to look at - everyone who has visited me said it reminds them of a prison kitchen. I have been placed in probably the worst en-suite accommodation block, yet I am paying exactly the same as the superior blocks. Our building is completely isolated from every other accommodation, so the social life is dead. It is also the furthest walk from lectures, minus the village. So many things have gone wrong with the flat too: my sink fell off, the fridge has been replaced three times, one of the microwaves wasn't working and it took over a month for them to fix. UEA is nothing more than a money-making scheme, knowing it can build the cheapest possible accommodation and get away with it because of the uni's 'good reputation'. It is disgusting, they are literally conning young adults out of money. Oh and the course is awfully taught too. show less
Medicine is hard but UEA makes it brilliant!
I would definitely recommend UEA to any students who are hoping to work in the healthcare field! The medicine course at UEA is PBL based and we have very early clinical experience starting from the first week of university. Medicine is all about hardwork but also good time management to strive a balance between work and enjoying time on campus. UEA has given me a lot of opportunities to learn new things and develop new interests such as doing bhangra dancing something I have never thought of doing. I have a good time staying on campus on first year with a decent accomodation and a beautiful scenery around campus to make you feel like home. All in all, I have thoroughly enjoyed my first three years at UEA and can't wait for more wonderful time upcoming for the next two years. show less
