Enrich yours studies by taking part in our optional Study Abroad programme, available in semester 1 of your second or third year.

In an increasingly international and globally connected 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.
