What our students say about Reading

‘The best thing about the lecturers in particular is their degree of availability and passion for their chosen subject. They are always keen on giving you advice during 1-to-1 sessions and will strive to make your postgraduate experience as enjoyable and fulfilling as possible.’ Cristina Radulescu from Romania studying LLM International Commercial Law with Intellectual Property Law and Management.

‘Once I had visited the beautiful hectares of parkland that surrounds the Whiteknights campus, I knew instantly that it was the perfect environment for my postgraduate studies.’ Emily Burford from the UK studying MSc Wildlife Conservation and Management.

‘I enjoy all aspects of my course, particularly having the opportunity of working with leading medievalists and being viewed as a medievalist in my own right. Although it is a small department, the facilities are vast, with our own private study space in the Graduate Centre for Medieval Studies room, as well as the library having extensive collections on the medieval world.’ George Moyle from the UK studying MRes Medieval Studies.

‘The University of Reading caught my interest due to the diverse range of programmes offered and I was particularly impressed that almost 90% of students were satisfied with the university. Being with students from 150 countries attending the University, being an international student, I was sure I would feel comfortable in such a diverse environment.’ Nalise Hahn from South African studying MSc Environment and Development.
