The University of Reading was established in 1892. It is now ranked in the top 40 of UK universities, and in the top 200 worldwide (QS World University Rankings 2018) with a world-class reputation for the quality of our teaching, research and links to business.

Our award-winning campuses are home to 17,000 students and 4,000 staff. We deliver a world-class student experience, with 13 of our subjects ranked in the global top 200.

94% of our graduates are in work or further study six months after graduating ((Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE 2014) HEFCE Employment Performance Indicator) and our ground-breaking research tackles the planet’s most pressing challenges.

Our outreach team works with prospective students, parents, advisors and teachers to provide tailored information, guidance and advice aimed at supporting applications and progression to university.
