We want you to get a feel for what life would be like as an undergraduate student here so we hold Visit Days for prospective students who have applied to this course and other non-interview courses at the University of Reading and have been offered a place. Visit Days are subject-specific and organised by the department you will be joining, so the Institute of Education will be taking care of you during your BA Education Studies Visit Day, although there will also be strong input from all other areas of the University that you will be in contact with. Even if you have already attended one of our Open Days, Visit Days are highly beneficial as they offer you a different, more bespoke experience.
During the day you will get the opportunity to meet your future tutors and hear more about the course you'll be studying. Current students are on hand to tell you all about their experiences here so far. You're also invited to a VIP lunch where you can get to know your future classmates.
Come to our Undergraduate Open Days and explore our beautiful campus, meet students and lecturers from all our courses, see our accommodation, and enjoy talks and taster lectures
