"The University of Reading is one of the top universities in the UK for studying environmental sciences. The way the university encourages international students, and involvement from around the world in its research, is something that drew me to study here. After finishing my Masters, I hope to go onto study for my PhD at Reading. This course enabled me to engage in a well-balanced program of practical and theoretical based learning. Throughout my studies there has been a focus on developing a wide range of skills, and the high standards of teaching have helped enhance this experience"
