Language is at the heart of human life; study a subject crucial to our understanding of ourselves as individuals, as members of society, and as a species.
At the University of Reading we offer you the opportunity to study all three aspects of this most complex form of human behaviour.
A purpose-built NHS speech and language clinic on campus means that you can access first-class observational facilities, a well-equipped speech research laboratory and a new sound recording room. We are closely associated with the Centre for Integrative Neuroscience and Neurodynamics and the Centre for Literacy and Multilingualism. These provide state-of-the-art facilities including eye-tracking, EER, fMRI and TMS, and a rich multidisciplinary research environment.
Excellent teaching informed by cutting-edge research, with over 85 per cent of our research submission judged to be of international standing in the last Research Assessment Exercise.
Excellent and varied placement opportunities thanks both to our close relationship with local speech and language therapy services and to the fact that a large proportion of our staff are qualified and practising speech and language therapists.
Highly relevant courses for your future career. Our MSc Speech and Language Therapy course is recognised by The Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists and approved by the Health and Care Professions Council.
