For teachers and advisors
At the University of Reading, we regularly engage with schools and colleges at a number of levels. We collectively run an extensive programme of outreach activities, providing bespoke on- and off-campus talks and activities for students, teachers and careers advisors. We also employ teams of student mentors and student ambassadors who can give the ‘student angle’ on life at Reading. In terms of teaching resources and facilities, our main library, three museums and Sports Park are also available to you.
As a Department, we are also very keen to develop closer relations with students, teachers and advisors in secondary schools and colleges. If you would like to find out more about the Department, our areas of study and what we can do for you, we would be happy to hear from you.
