Study abroad

Stand out from the crowd by considering our Study Abroad option. By choosing to do a four-year degree, you can apply to study at one of our partner institutions for a year or spend six months abroad and another six months working in the international development sector.

In an increasingly international and mobile world, studying abroad can help boost your future employability. It provides an exciting opportunity to acquire numerous transferable and desirable skills, and study specialisms additional to what's offered at Reading. It's also a fantastic life experience.

To qualify for the Study Abroad option, you must meet the requirements of the host institution. This option is highly competitive and is therefore not guaranteed.

All courses offered by our partner universities are taught in English.

Consider the opportunity to Study in Africa

You will have the opportunity to be based at Mbarara University of Science and Technology for a module tailored for University of Reading students.

You will see first-hand some of the challenges of international development, and put the theory you have learned into practice. You will be enrolled in a structured programme of field-based study jointly delivered by staff from Reading and the overseas university.

This is an optional module and there is an additional cost for the trip.
