Why choose the University of Reading?

Founded in the 19th century as an extension College of the University of Oxford, Reading was the only University to be awarded a charter between the two world wars. All students, whether living in University or privately rented accommodation, are part of the local community. The University takes pride in the value that our students bring to Reading but also recognises the challenge of integrating students with the wider population. They work closely with local authorities, including Reading Borough Council, Wokingham Borough Council and local police teams, to put in place a range of measures to help students settle into local neighbourhoods.

They offer a wide range of programmes from the pure and applied sciences to languages, humanities, social sciences, business and arts. New research and the latest thinking continually feed into our teaching, with academic staff working at the forefront of their fields of expertise, and they remain one of the most popular higher education choices in the UK.
