Chemistry students represent University of Sheffield on China trip

University of Sheffield students visit Nanjing in ChinaTwo chemistry undergraduates have been representing the University of Sheffield in China, to help students there prepare for studying in the UK.

Jasmine Catlow and George Hunter have been meeting students on our BSc Chemistry '3+1' joint degree with Nanjing Tech University. On this course, students are based in Nanjing and taught by visiting University of Sheffield academics for their first three years. They then have the chance to come to Sheffield for their final year.

Part of Jasmine and George's role has been to help 3+1 students currently in Nanjing find out more about living in Sheffield and studying at the University.

They've attended student forums and alumni events for former students who have already completed a 3+1 course, to help current 3+1 students prepare for their transfer to Sheffield.

Also on the trip were maths students Elizabeth Sheppeck and James Watkins, and physics students Benjamin Jolly and Eloisa Paver. They have been representing the University of Sheffield's School of Mathematics and Statistics, and Department of Physics and Astronomy, which have also been running 3+1 degrees with Nanjing Tech University.

As well as spending time with students at Nanjing Tech University, the six Sheffield students also visited Nanjing University, Southeast University and nearby cities such as Shanghai and Suzhou.
