Overview

The University of Reading is a public university located in the town of Reading in Berkshire, England. The university was established in 1892 as an extension college of the University of Oxford. It received university status in 1926 and classified as a red brick university, which indicates its establishment in the 19th century.

The University of Reading runs three campuses in the United Kingdom and one campus in Iskandar Puteri, Malaysia. Its academic structure consists of 50 schools and departments that award bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees in a wide range of study areas. The School of the Built Environment, for example, specializes in architecture, energy systems and environmental engineering, and construction management. The School of Arts and Communication Design, on the other hand, offers programs on Creative Writing and Film, Art and English Literature, and Theater and Performance.

The Henley Business School is a prestigious, top-ranking business school that merged with the University of Reading in 2008. It offers a full suite of business degrees that cover programs such as International Business and Strategy, Business Informatics, Systems and Accounting, and Marketing and Reputation. It holds Triple Crown accreditation, which is an accreditation held by less than one percent of business schools worldwide.

The university’s research activities are focused on four themes, namely, prosperity and resilience; environment; agriculture, food, and health; and heritage and creativity. Its researchers work on projects related to climate change, food security, health, and world culture.

The University of Reading was originally the University College, Reading. It took its current name when it was granted a Royal Charter in 1926. The university went through several restructuring and some of its departments have also closed.

In 2009, another reorganization resulted in the grouping of all its academic departments into three faculties: Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Science; The Faculty of Science; and The Faculty of Life Sciences. Several of its departments have been awarded the biannual Queen's Anniversary Prize for their contributions in furthering knowledge in their respective study areas.

The university has produced notable alumni who work in diverse fields such as sociology, business, broadcasting, chemistry, economics, climatology, international relations, and literature. The list of alumni includes British journalist and documentary filmmaker, Nick Thorpe; botanist and Nature magazine editor, L. J. F. Brimble; and jazz-pop singer, Jamie Cullum. Moreover, the university has a long list of notable academics teaching and researching in disciplines like cybernetics, economics, international relations, and climatology.
