Welcome from the Vice-Chancellor

The University of Reading is ranked as one of the UK's most research-intensive universities and as one of the top-ranking universities in the world. It is also one of the highest financially endowed universities in the UK.

The quality and diversity of our research is recognised nationally and internationally, with a number of our researchers receiving awards for their work. Many academic staff are leading authorities in their fields; their calibre and commitment are major factors in our high performance in national assessments and league tables.

The University of Reading is one of the most popular higher education choices in the UK and consistently features at the top of the National Student Satisfaction Survey. Our broad portfolio of full-time and part-time degree courses covers the arts, humanities, sciences and social sciences. We regularly update our courses as new ideas emerge and industry needs change.

Our impressive multi-million pound investment programme is delivering twenty-first century facilities, strengthening our international reputation for quality teaching, research and enterprise.

Working at the University of Reading offers an exceptional opportunity to apply your skills and experience. We offer a stimulating and peaceful working environment in one of the UK's most attractive campuses.

Our ambitions centre on making a meaningful contribution to people's education, well-being and cultural lives, both in our own community and society as a whole. We will pursue our innovative enterprise agenda so that we contribute to a thriving region that is economically, socially and culturally world-class.

I hope you find the Reading experience rewarding and enjoyable.

Professor Robert Van de Noort
