The Local Area
Whether you are a sports fan, love a good comedy club or just want to dance the night away with your mates, Reading will have something to offer you.
The town is large enough to boast a range of great shops, trendy and traditional bars, restaurants and arts and sport venues, but small enough to feel welcoming. It also has fantastic transport links, and you can reach London within half an hour by train.
The town has a proud history of welcoming people from across the globe, and international students often comment on the warm atmosphere and multicultural vibe found here.
