The prospectus was issued in early 2017 and is aimed at prospective undergraduate students wishing to apply for a place at the University of Reading (the University) and start a course in autumn 2018. The prospectus describes in outline the courses and services offered by the University. The University makes every effort to ensure that the information provided in the prospectus is accurate and up-to-date at the time of going to press (February 2017). However, it may be necessary for the University to make some changes to the information presented in the prospectus following publication – for example, where it is necessary to reflect changes in practice or theory in an academic subject as a result of emerging research; or if an accrediting body requires certain course content to be added or removed.
The University undertakes to take all reasonable steps to provide the services (including the courses) described in the prospectus. It does not, however, guarantee the provision of such services. Should industrial action or circumstances beyond the control of the University interfere with its ability to provide the services, the University undertakes to use all reasonable steps to minimise any disruption to the services.

Sample modules are provided as a taster of some of the modules that may be available on this course. The sample modules listed may be compulsory (core) or optional modules. Information is correct at the time of going to press (February 2017) but the University cannot guarantee that a module appearing in this list will definitely run. For optional modules, the University cannot guarantee that all optional modules will be available to all students who may wish to take them, although the University will try to ensure that students are able to take optional modules in which they have expressed interest at the appropriate time during their course. Optional modules vary from year to year and entry to them will be at the discretion of the Programme Director. Some modules are available on more than one course; if you see a sample module under one course and want to know if it is available on another course, contact the relevant department. Contact details are available on our course pages.
