Undergraduate courses

Become part of a wider creative community at Arts & Communication Design and benefit from leading experts who are active in academic research and cutting-edge practice,  explore outstanding arts facilities, and develop your skills and practice alongside a community of dedicated staff and students.

Join a collaborative network. As an Arts & Communication Design student you will have multiple opportunities for interdisciplinary  interactions. Our wide range of joint degree courses enables you to develop your independent practice across two or more disciplines, while cross-departmental projects are actively encouraged, for instance Typography students regularly design the catalogue for the Art degree show.

Further opportunities to work together include the Destination Nature International Exhibition and Tate Exchange. Tate Exchange enables staff and students from across Arts & Communication Design to collaborate on a huge scale with artists from Reading and the general public at Tate Modern.

degree courses

We offer a range of single and joint degrees. Our joint courses allow you to study two separate subjects in detail and gain a full qualification in each.  

Spaces to create and collaborate

At Reading we offer you a huge variety of purpose-built facilities and special collections to inspire you and help you maximise your potential.

Facilities include versatile theatre spaces,  editing and post-production suites, 24-hour art studios, and workshops where you can experiment with welding and metalwork, sculpture and woodwork, and 3D printing and new technologies.

As well as our creative spaces, we also have numerous collections and resources to excite and enthuse, including on-campus museums, historical equipment, archives and manuscripts, and rare books.

Creative teaching and learning methods

Be challenged and inspired. As an Arts & Communication Design student, our degree courses and academics will help you to develop independent thinking skills and confidence in your practice, as well as giving you the necessary transferable skills for employment within the creative field.
