Open your eyes to the world! Living and studying in another country has many benefits that are recognised by employers, but travel provides experiences you didn't expect as well.
Students on our MChem with a year in industry/research course have an opportunity to complete their third-year abroad, gaining valuable international experience. This is a chance to open doors to new places with new languages and different ways of doing things, offering new cultural perspectives, unique skills and, potentially, a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
“It looks very good to have international experience on your CV. Living and working in a different culture shows that you are willing to go outside of your comfort zone.”
A term in China
The University of Reading has a long-established relationship with the Nanjing University of Information Science and Technology (NUIST). The two institutions have now established a joint Academy, after receiving formal approval from the Ministry of Education of China. This allows us to not only invite students from China to study with us, but also gives our undergraduates the chance to spend a term in China.
