“Reading Student village”

published 20/02/2002

ProRead opinion

ConsRead opinion

I know this isn't a review about Reading uni but there isn’t an option for halls of residence so I had to put it here. Besides I feel this is quite important. The Student village is a hall of residence for students at Reading university, and I was first attracted to it after I had been...

Conssee below

This is not about the University of Reading as a whole, just about the hall of residence that I am currently staying in, which is called Childs Hall. I honestly can't remember which Halls I selected on the accommodation form, but I said that I wanted catered hall, and would quite like a sink, so...

ConsBit ugly outside, but inside it's nice =D

Okay, so when I first decided to go to University my chief concern was 'Where will I be living?' (after of course getting a place =P). I got placed in Sibly Hall (my first choice for price!) and am sincerely glad I did! This is a review of Sibly Hall, just so you guys know. Sibly has probably got...

I started an MA at Reading University when I was 40 and, although I had a lot of life experience I had not done a first degree. My work was assessed and I was admitted straight on to an MA course in Education. I really appreciated being given the chance to study at post-graduate level, and felt...

ConsCan't think of any

I am just moving into my third year at Reading Uni and I've enjoyed myself greatly so far. The campus is one of its best features, and everything is contained in two main areas, with Whiteknights being the biggest. Reading would be a good choice for foreign students as it offers the chance to...

“Vetting Reading”

published 16/09/2000

ProLocation, town, courses

ConsNone I can think of

Just finished a 3-year BSc at Reading, and find myself committing myself to another 3-years of study for a PhD (I must be mad! :-). As other people have said, the campus itself has to be one of the best in the country - after all, how many Universities can claim to have a centralised campus...

I have just completed my second year at Reading University and hopefully this will give an insight into what can be expected at Reading University, of course you make it what it is. I spent my first year in Childs Hall, which I found to be a throughally enjoyable experience. I must admit it is...

I attended a Masters course in 1999/2000 as a forgein student . The University has its own campus close to Reading town center. This is gives the advantage of a quiet a centered campus with easy access to the town. The University has a large international student population, giving you a chance...

ProLocation in relation to London, Nightlife, Staff

ConsStrange obligatory fees, some of the accomodation

I spent four years studying at Reading prior to my graduation last year and during all that time not once did I have any reason to complain. I was provided with support when I decided to change course and my life was made fairly easy during that time through the excellent guidance of my personal...

ProVery close to campus

ConsNot very modern!

This is about Bridges Hall rather than Reading University in general but it should be helpful to people who are deciding which hall to apply to. Firstly, I came to Bridges Hall in 2002 as a fresher, which is scary enough in itself! The hall is very large with roughly 460 rooms, some catered, some...
