University prepares for A level results Thursday 18 August

A level results 2016

Preparations are underway to welcome new students to the University of Reading.

Thousands of prospective students will find out whether they will be joining the University of Reading following the release of A level results on Thursday 18 August. 

To help respond quickly to enquiries from both our firm and insurance offer holders, as well as prospective students wishing to join the University through Clearing or Adjustment, two individual hotlines will be in operation:

Clearing and Adjustment hotline

Naturally, this can be an anxious time for prospective students, so any calls or enquiries received should be redirected to the appropriate hotline. 

University social media channels will also be working to engage potential students and help support their decision. If you use social media, please direct any enquiries to @uniofreading or @unirdg_apply on Twitter or /theuniversityofreading on Facebook, and please join in any congratulatory messages sent to successful applicants. 

Occasionally, prospective students may choose to come to the campus to discuss their enquiry face-to-face. All visitors should be directed to the Palmer Building, where the Admissions team will be able to provide help and advice, with the exception of Friday 19 August (see below). 

On Friday 19 August, students offered a place at Reading through the Clearing or Adjustment process will be offered to attend an invitation-only Open Morning at Henley Business School. The session will provide visitors an opportunity to speak with academic colleagues and see our wonderful campuses and facilities. All visitors on Friday 19 August should be directed to Henley Business School. 

Our Admissions and academic colleagues have been working hard over the past few weeks in preparation of this crucial time. We ask that all colleagues make our guests and enquirers feel as welcome as possible and help point them in the right direction.
