The International Summer School at ReadingIHRL Photo 1

The International Summer School offers the excellent opportunity to visit the UK and study an academic subject in our beautiful campus environment. Each year we welcome individuals from across the globe to study a range of subjects, enjoy exciting social events and make new friends. Our International Summer School students experience life as full University of Reading students during their stay.

The central International Summer School team are based within the International Study and Language Institute (ISLI) within the Humanities and Social Sciences Building on the Whiteknights campus. The ISLI is a first-class teaching institute at the University which has over 40 years' experience in providing academic and language programmes for international students and the wider University community.

International Summer School courses are created and taught by expert teaching staff within ISLI and from across the University of Reading subject Departments.
