The University of Reading has a single aim: to make the world a better place for all.
By helping to tackle global challenges – from the climate crisis, sustainability, and world hunger, to natural disasters, mental health, and the pandemic – they are working towards everyone’s tomorrow, a mission in which their students are integral.
For students who are passionate about delivering a brighter future, for everyone and everything, Reading is a university that’s doing something about it.
The university believes that learning goes beyond the transfer of knowledge, and they strive to continually increase their global reach. Their research – 98% of which is rated of international standing in the Research Excellence Framework 2014 – has real-world impact and can directly benefit students’ learning. The discoveries made one day could be heard in lecture theatres the next.
There are more than 250 courses to choose from across a wide range of subjects, with many available as joint honours programmes allowing students to broaden their horizons and maximise their potential. Placement opportunities are plentiful and ensure Reading students stand out over their competitors in the job market.
The university is set across three spectacular campuses, each providing a truly inspirational environment in which to live and study. The main Whiteknights campus, set amongst 130 hectares of stunning parkland, is one of the UK’s top green spaces, receiving nine consecutive Green Flag awards.
