So after much deliberation, I’ve decided to do a research abroad program next year
(If I achieve 2:1 and above).
This is known as the ERASMUS & Swiss-EU Mobility Program.
Why do I want to do this?
1 – I enjoy studying and living at different cultural environments.
2 – I can spend an entire term, working (not shadowing) in a host research lab of my choice.
You don’t have that kind of opportunity as an undergraduate,
unless you do an industry placement program.
(But that’s the story for another day…)
3 – I want to take this extra time to better plan my future career.
