There will also be talks on a wide range of subjects from accountancy to zoology, many of which will be given by University of Reading academic staff.
Professor Gavin Brooks, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Teaching and Learning at the University of Reading, said: "On behalf of the University of Reading, I am delighted to welcome the thousands of prospective students from secondary schools across the region who are attending the UCAS Fair.
"The Fair represents a great opportunity for anyone considering higher education to talk directly to universities on a 1-to-1 basis, hear about the realities of university life and learn more about the incredible range of courses available at university. We hope the young people attending will be inspired, enthused and better informed about what university can contribute to their future lives."
