We cultivate a friendly environment, where every student and staff member is a part of our inclusive and thriving community. From your first day in the Department, there will be lots of opportunities for you to meet new people and make friends, starting with the University-wide Welcome Week.
A calendar of events starting with the weekly master’s seminar and including other academic events such as visiting speakers and research seminars, along with social events, will help you to widen your social and academic community within both the School of Humanities and the Graduate School.
Engage with guest speakers
These seminars display the latest philosophical research from experts around the UK and the world. They sometimes feature past Reading students, so you can find out about their academic careers since graduating.
