In the third year of her MChem Chemistry with a Year in Industry/Research degree, Amie Parker was avoiding the bleak British weather in sunny Spain.
She was improving her Spanish language skills, enjoying incredible food and seeing new places. But she was also getting some valuable one-to-one research experience at the University of Zaragoza.
Amie had decided to take part in the Erasmus programme, which is run through the University of Reading's Erasmus & Study Abroad Office.
“There's an ongoing collaboration between the University of Reading and the University of Zaragoza. I heard about the placement through my supervisor.”
