Q&A


Q
What is the ethics, value and philosophy course like? and does the department tend to stink to the typical offer shown on the website for their offers?
By member732962 On 20th July 18
This course is very flexible- there are only two compulsory modules. A placement year, either in the UK or abroad is strongly encouraged and they are very fleixble with what they allow you to do.

Wifi is very speedy. 3sixty is a spacious club. The one hour walk to town from the whiteknights campus is quite annoying, especially during the cold; but there is a bus stop on campus to town. Co-op doesn't have a big range of food and supplies. The lake is scenic and relaxing to chill at. Quite sad that the clubs in Reading centre are small and repetitive - building another club such as Pryzm would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Reading is a good uni, the SU club (3sixty) is good, the halls are all good and the courses are taught well. The Whiteknights campus is very nice, and the SU has alot of different things around and about to get involved in. The campus is a bit isolated from the rest of the Reading town, but its not too much of a pain to get to. Some of the clubs in town are dead, but there are a few good ones.

Keep in mind that these reviews reflect individual views of students and do not indicate how you will find your own personal experience at Reading. My personal experience has been negative, overall. Although the campus is quite nice, the town of Reading is not a pleasant place to live. There is very little to offer in terms of culture and night-life. The town is fairly ugly too. I feel mis-lead by the marketing for the university, as we were never told that our library would be closed for half of our degree, or that certain modules were only available to single-honours students. I also feel that the university is trying to recruit as many students as possible in order to fund it's massive investments in it's re-development project which won't be completed until 2026 (google '2026: Transform').They are not being selective about the students they take in, and this is leading to overcrowding in some departments. Funding to those departments does not seem to have increased proportionally.

The University of Reading has a beautiful campus with lots of modern and traditional buildings. The campus is evenly spread with plenty of green spaces dividing it. The sports facilities are excellent quality however there are not enough tennis courts and the gym is too overcrowded all the time. There are a wide range of sports available to partake in with lots teams. There are also a wide range of societies available to join which are all present at the societies fair at the beginning of the year. The Students Union is the largest club night in Reading which most students attend however can only be described as average, despite holding some good nights when large performers come. The real club scene is in town on friar street with the best two being Matchbox and Q club, which admittedly are very good. The Halls are all very good quality with very good WiFi covering the campus. I have had a very positive experience so far.

Due to strikes my whole first year has been so poor, we only got 1/3 of the years lectures and even in our end of year exams there were typos and content we were told would not be on the test. I found the societies to be the best part of Reading, I'd encourage any fresher to join up. I would also advise students looking for a more social experience to apply to cheaper halls, I stayed in the expensive halls and only had 2 flatmates who spoke english (out of 8). The nightlife is average.

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.

Disappointed with the University, poor quality of teaching and abysmal support staffing, avoid this University if your looking for a good technical education. Following an awful year here that almost put me off completing my degree and instead attending another Uni has shown me why I originally took up the subject, to put you in mind I failed my year at reading and was constantly disenchanted with the teaching and now have graduated with a first elsewhere, where I renewed my love for the subject

Very poor university, while studying the lecturers would often not turn up without warning, lectures also talked in class about how they were looking to for other jobs while teaching, highly unprofessional. equipment was very outdated compared to other universities and very difficult to get in contact with any member of staff.

2 years ago I would've said it was so much better but since allowing almost 30% more students through its doors in 2 years while also closing the library and students union for refurbishment it has lead to a stunning lack and constant fight for study space or places to enjoy campus which is now massively overcrowded, always loud and for too busy. On top of this they got rid of the independent campus shop for a Co-Op which is stacked full of as many aisles as possible, making it difficult to manoeuvre (especially with the increased amount of student) and is constantly unstocked. Basically this unviversity is going massively downhill and is cared very little for its students only how much money it's making and what titles it has. So for it to drop out of the top 20 in this pointless table would be richly deserved.

The university library has been closed since the summer I arrived and will be closed until I graduate. If I knew this beforehand I would not have come to the university. I would have scored the student union higher also however they too have closed the main club this term which has affected my time as it was one of the biggest student nights out. The internet is always reliable and there are plenty clubs and societies to be a part of.

The Campus is fairly easy to navigate. The quality of facilities varies from building to building. The teaching quality also varies enormously as it does with all universities. Sports societies are fairly strong but other societies are limited and all are expensive. If you don't enjoy standard nights out to a club, the Reading nightlife won't be for you as there is next to no diversity in venues. My biggest grievance with Reading is the boredom. Unless you have to money to take advantage of it's shopping center you will struggle to find a way to occupy the time.

Shop on campus, and many places to grab a coffee. They're there if you'd like to use them. The shop is expensive, but people will obviously still use it. Lots of clubs available, just need to go out there and get involved. Having to pay £5 a night to get into your own student union seems ridiculous to me, with drinks inside being even more of a blow to the wallet.

Rusu can often be a bit too pushy with some of their campaigns and promote facts that aren't reliable when it comes to topics such as feminism. As well as this , money is pushed up in the campus shop because a percentage goes to rusu , so I would prefer it wouldn't go towards campaigns that do nothing

Great university. So much on campus, amazing union and so many events put on daily - roadshows, vintage fayres, food markets, plant markets. Shops, banks, coffee shops, food halls, restaurants all on campus. Beautiful lake on campus and so much greenery. Security patrolling all the time, so you feel safe. Only a 20 minute bus journey to centre of town, £1.50 for return, lovely town. You have everything you could possible need.

Facilities on campus are varied. Some buildings reasonably old, however there are many modern buildings as well. Library in particular very large and modern to study comfortably as well as the business school. The campus itself has pros and cons. As nice as it looks, the layout of the university was obviously not well-planned. There is a lot of greenery for no reason and this leaves no places for halls near campus. Therefore most halls are a long walk away. Also if you're going reading and don't have a car, grocery shopping is out of the question. The closest supermarket (not express) is a 30 minute bus drive away. As useful as the students union is, it lacks diversity. This unfortunately leads to the same boring planned events. E.g. buses to clubs in london or coach tours elsewhere is out of the question. The wi-fi here constantly disconnects from your phone. Town and the oracle shopping centre are good places to chill, shop or eat and a 20 minute bus drive away.

Weakest area is the clubs of Reading. Great if you're someone that only goes out on weekends like me, but after a week or two of every other night, you start to run out of places on Friarstreet. London is only a short trip away though..

Reading has been a constant party. My life literally consists of partying-sleeping-studying and its a dream. Reading manages to balance a party atmosphere and a studious one. I couldn't ask for anything more.

My decision to go to the University of Reading was the best of my life. I'm lectured and guided in my studies by experts in their field, and I regularly come across their articles when I'm researching topics in the library. Our student union is my favourite night out of the week and the nightlife in town is really good too! We have so many opportunities for careers, apprenticeships, and internships on our doorstep, helped by our proximity to London. The campus is beautiful and it's such a good all-round experience.

The student union is the hub of the university. It has everything - from the legendary bagel man to 3Sixty - the biggest capacity night club in reading. The union also has great societies: from those that are subject specific, trying or continuing a new sport to the Beyonce and ultimate frisbee! I walk through the union almost every day while at university - either for a quick Starbucks before a lecture, a round of pool in Mojo's with my friends, a bubble tea from Pearls, or to post a letter. I also love how the union puts on a fruit and vegetable sale on a Thursday or that they sometimes have a bakery sale going on. The union has something for everyone and its always there for the students.

I was happily surprised when I travelled across the sea and came to Uni of Reading and saw how big, green and welcoming the campus was. It has everything you need nearby, and should you need to go to town it is simply a 15 min bus trip or 30-40 min walk depending on where you live. My teachers are clearly engaged in their subjects and have interesting approaches to their teaching. There is a society for everyone, and a great chance to learn a new skill as beginners are very welcomed in sports/activities. The only source of my frustration until now have been group projects with other students who don´t care about doing a good job, just getting the job done. I encourage you to start at uni with high ambition and intention of putting yourself out there, no matter where you choose to go. Reading is a quality university with a good community and who cares for its students and I have not regretted choosing Reading for one second.

Reading is a brilliant university and has been a wonderful experience so far. The politics course focuses on incredibly interesting areas.

i like the uni but i feel insignificant there, the lecturers and staff don't bond at all. There is a massive drinking culture which i hate, students there make you feel outcasted if you dont go to union or mnq every week, i find this really annoying as i hate nightclubs and i wish there were more bars and restaurants. The university appears to suck every penny from you with ridiculously priced accommodation to JCR fees that gave us nothing.

I'll probably get a decent looking degree out of this but it hasn't lived up to my expectations of university- I felt more challenged in secondary school. Classes are dull and the uni is a bit boring. Although there are a fair few decent societies, lad culture seems to dominate halls and its very easy to get outcast if you're not drinking every other day. I also feel that there should be more scope for choice in modules, I still have compulsory modules in third year. In conclusion I wouldn't strongly recommend the university but it's OK.

I think it very much depends uoon the course you choose to take but, my experience at this university so far has been brilliant. I study archaeology and the department facilities and people are incredible. The university campus is surprisingly green and full of nature. There is almost always something going on, whether its clubs, nights out or quizzes. The accomodation in first year is all either on the campus or very close to it.
