The International Summer School at Reading
The International Summer School is an excellent chance to come to the UK to study a range of academic subjects for a short period during the summer. The subjects on offer include Law, Economics, Archaeology, Latin, and European Culture. There are courses also planned in Food Science, Biology and Psychology.
Each course is managed by the relevant specialist department, and general co-ordination of the courses are overseen by the International Study and Language Centre (ISLC). ISLC representatives Bruce Howell and Pilar Gray-Carlos are shown here - at Reading's beautiful Whiteknights campus!
Our international community
The University of Reading is a very international community. The quality of our teaching and research, our world-class facilities and our proximity to Heathrow Airport and London attract many overseas students each year, as well as many international staff who choose to stay. International students from all over the world currently account for around 20 per cent of our total student population and bring a valuable dimension and vital energy to campus life. A large proportion of international students study at some stage in the International Study and Language Centre (ISLC).
Our main Whiteknights site is an exceptional environment in which to study, live and relax. Whiteknights offers:
- cutting-edge teaching and learning facilities;
- an excellent range of accommodation;
- an excellent choice of food both on and off campus;
- large areas of green space for walking and relaxing;
- extensive indoor and outdoor sports facilities.
All this is just a short walk or ride from the centre of Reading with its lively mix of culture, nightlife, shops and eating places. For those preferring country pursuits, the Chiltern Hills and the River Thames are close by. Excellent transport links put Oxford, London and Windsor within easy reach.
