Counting the cost of the Great Wall of China? An exploratory Summer School expedition

Obbie imageFirst year Quantity Surveying student Obotlhale Mpetang is one of only six students from across the University of Reading to be awarded the Vice-Chancellor's China Scholarship to attend a summer School at Renmin University in Beijing. Whilst there she will have the opportunity to learn about and explore the Chinese culture, Chinese language, the politics of China, the Economy of China and Chinese literature.

Obotlhale, who is from Botswana, says:

"Being an international student has developed my interest in cultural diversity. I would like to experience how it is to live in China, one of the fastest growing economies with a distinct strong culture. I believe the experience would give me a holistic view of China's building architecture and of legends told, as well as a feel for different cultures, which in turn would impact on my career."
