Madusha Gunawardena
BA Business Management (Henley Business School)
University of Reading

I have just finished my first year at the University of Reading and I can without any doubt say that it was the best decision I have made in my entire life. It was my very first time away from home and family and I must admit that initially after alevels when I was considering options for my higher education, the thought of going to a whole new country frightened me. But the past year that I have spent in Reading, studying at Henley – one of UK’s well-reputed business schools, has completely turned that view around.

By looking at how I was as an individual back then and now – just months later, I myself can feel the immense difference in terms of how much I’ve grown. Leaving home as a child fully dependant on my parents for just about anything. I can now confidently say that I have become a totally independant person. This I believe is the greatest lesson that I gained from studying in a foreign university apart from the amazing academic and university life itself.

I cannot emphasise enough how much my life has changed ever since I made that bold decision to come to UK for my higher education. Therefore, I believe it is definitely something that has to be experienced by everyone.
