I went to Hong Kong to take up a placement at Hong Kong Polytechnic University to work with traditional Chinese medicine. It was one of the best six months of my life.

There are no regulations at the moment covering these herbs and the Government wanted to set up a regulatory system to find out more about them, the bioactive compounds.

The project was analytical chemistry and I used my skills in Chemistry.

I would say the best thing about the placement was meeting new people, both local people from China and other exchange students.
