Life in Reading

Step off campus and you'll find yourself in a bustling town centre offering a variety of shops, restaurants and activities. We're also well-connected – you can reach London Paddington within half an hour by train.

I had the opportunity to visit numerous universities but Reading stood out. The town itself is so warm and away from the stress of big cities such as London. At the same time, it is very close to London.

Life on campus

The Institute of Education is based on the historic London Road campus which underwent a £30 million refurbishment of the classical 'Oxford cloistered' quadrangle to create a dedicated world-class education centre.
