Language is at the heart of human life; study a subject crucial to our understanding of ourselves as individuals, as members of society, and as a species.
At the University of Reading you will
benefit from excellent teaching informed
by cutting-edge research; 98% of our
research submission was judged to be of
international standing in a recent national
assessment.1 A purpose-built NHS speech
and language clinic on campus means that
you can access first-class observational
facilities, a well-equipped speech research
laboratory and a new sound recording
room. Furthermore, we are closely
associated with the Centre for Integrative
Neuroscience and Neurodynamics and the
Centre for Literacy and Multilingualism.
These provide state-of-the-art facilities
including eye-tracking, EER, fMRI and
TMS, and a rich multidisciplinary research
environment. Additionally, you can benefit
from excellent and varied placement
opportunities. This is thanks to our close
relationship with local speech and language
therapy services and the large proportion
of our staff who are qualified and practising
speech and language therapists.
