  • shu ci: UEA was definitely a university choice that I did not regret choosing in the first place. This city centre is concentrated in one place and not scattered everywhere so it is very convenient for doing my grocery shopping, essential shopping, window shopping , etc. In addition, my course in UEA is very intellectual and lecturers were very enthusiastic and I had enough support and assistance throughout my studies.
