Fangru flourished and developed as a creative during her time at Reading, and thanks the Department's collaborative, supportive and diverse learning environment for building the foundations for her future research. Having completed her undergraduate degree in Shanghai, she came to Reading to study for her MA Fine Art in 2020. Now graduated, she is working as a freelance creative in her home city of Shanghai.
Like many international students, she decided where to study based on her online research. What made Reading the clear choice was the facilities, industry reputation, campus, and location in the UK.
