The University of Reading offers over 250 degree programmes to support a wide range of career aspirations, in subjects spanning the arts, humanities, sciences, and social sciences.
For students with more than one passion they want to pursue, the university offers many joint honours courses, enabling students to broaden their horizons and explore multiple pathways. Most courses also have a modular structure, giving students more control over what they study and how they study it and allowing them to specialise in the areas that interest them most while still developing core subject knowledge.
And for students who want to pursue their passion, but lack the necessary qualities to do so, the university provides a number of courses with an integrated foundation year. This extra introductory year will prepare students for studying their subject at a higher level.
Many courses also come with integrated work placement years, designed to help students develop the skills and experience that will help boost their employability when they graduate.
Courses are taught by passionate academics, many of whom are actively working at the forefront of research in their chosen field, and are informed by the world-leading research being undertaken on campus.
Class sizes are kept small wherever possible, which provide students with a more personalised learning experience. All students also receive a range of accessible academic support.
University of Reading Students on Whatuni say:
“There is a lot of flexibility within the course with very few compulsory modules giving students the chance to build their own degree. I really enjoyed that I can take most modules offered in the department whether they are ecology/zoology based to more biomed/microbiology focused.”
“Like that lectures can be available online and done in person. Additionally, a good level of 1-2-1 contact with lecturers.”
“Lecturers are always available and you can also record some of their lectures which is really helpful.”
