Love my course. Good facilities with enthusiastic lecturers who clearly love their subjects. The course is quite flexible, with lots of optional modules so it can be tailored towards specific interests or career paths.

Because of covid majority of course was online and this also meant in second and third year lecturers diddnt include as many in person lectures because of how easy it was to move to online. Wish there had been more in person lectures and opportunities to talk to lecturers. read more

Just an all round bad experience, if you can go to any other university I highly recommend you do so, the lecturers don't seem to care about the subjects, the campus is dull and uninspiring and there is a overwhelming feeling that most students are disappointed but are just accepting their position rather than enjoying their experience. read more

Although I got a first it was virtually impossible for me to find a job in the environmental sector. Before I attended Reading I thought it was one of the top UK unis, but after graduating I realise a degree from Reading might not be as impressive. Teaching quality is fantastic and lecturers want to support you, therefore my tutor never contacting me wasn’t an issue as I had support elsewhere. There is always someone to go to with issues and they will deal with them very quickly. The geography department need student feedback to know how they need to improve so they certainly Take everything on board. read more

Would not recommend doing a geography degree at Reading. The lecturers don't care, & frankly can't teach. The model assignments put you under a lot of stress, when the module wasn't even taught well - so dont expect to be getting good results. Human geography lecturers are the worst, they're uninspiring, poor are teaching, poor at marking or listening to students. You'll definitely will not get any attention or help. Definitely not worth the money you're paying. THIS IS WHY READING IS NOT A RUSSELL GROUP UNIVERSITY! read more
