Animal Science Society
Join the friendly, sociable student-led society focused on all things Animal Science, open to both course members and anyone who has a passion for animals.
The Animal Science Society has socials throughout the year that cater to all, from non-themed and themed nights out, to movie nights, meals and day trips for the relaxed socials (non-alcoholic).
There will be great trips and talks throughout the academic year, including potential puppy visits, volunteering opportunities, and some amazing guest speakers.
Committee members offer ongoing support towards your welfare and educational needs, and you will even have the opportunity to run for election to be a committee member yourself.
“My duty as the first-ever elected president of the Animal Science Society was to further establish and build on the foundations laid by the founding committee. After being elected, I was offered an industrial placement and decided to fulfil my presidency alongside this. I managed to oversee all society affairs and events and ensured committee members were proactive in my absence. I organised our first-ever external trip to London Zoo to set an example for years to come. We managed to double the number of members this year while reaching out to students outside of the course that share our interests. The new committee is very passionate and I am sure that they will grow the Society and its University presence even further.”
Life at Reading
When you join the School of Agriculture, Policy and Development, you become part of a thriving community of more than 300 undergraduate students from 40 countries and different backgrounds, with varied interests and career ambitions.
From the warm welcome you will receive during Welcome Week, to the goodbye ceremony at graduation, we want you to make the most of your time with us.
You will have the opportunity to make friends and interact with students across all degree subjects, not only in your teaching sessions, tutorials and on visits, but also while relaxing in our friendly common room.
Most of our first-year students have accommodation in halls on or around campus, and many social activities revolve around hall events. You will be encouraged to participate in everything the University has to offer, including joining clubs and societies, sitting on School committees, acting as student ambassador on Open Days, and making use of the extensive sports facilities on campus.
We hope you will leave us with a degree that you worked hard for, and with lifelong friendships and lasting memories of your time here.
