Throughout my time at Reading I have always found the staff to be easily approachable and willing to go above and beyond to help all students. As well as the staff, the facilities are new, stylish and provide for your needs. I have really enjoyed my four years at Reading and have gained friends for life.

I really enjoyed my time at the Reading School of Pharmacy. The course really aims to develop all the requirements needed to be a pharmacist. However, it goes above and beyond; I had the opportunity to learn about business administration with Henley Business School.
