Sheffield is generally considered the better Uni overall, but Reading is very good for speech and language therapy so it's a tough one...I don't think you'll be at a disadvantage whichever one you pick, so I would just go with whichever one you preferred when you visited (or if you didn't ... now is the time)

Hi,
Here at the University of Reading, our Speech and Language Therapy (MSci) course is rated as one of the highest in the country on university league tables (2019), meaning that the course here is highly respected in the field, with it connecting to different NHS, Private and Charity organisations allowing you to gain all your required clinical hours to qualify as a Speech and Language therapist after the four years, as required by the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists.
Speaking with current Speech and Language Therapy students, many enjoy the diversity of different placements which are offered, as well as the passion and specific focus of research here, linked with Autism, Linguistics, Language Development, Language Pathology and Bilingualism.

Speaking from a more general term, Reading is a very good university, based on a very large area of parkland, in a town 30 minutes from London. Which personally has given me a lovely embrace of my inner love of the countryside and the usual positive benefits of being in an urban center busy with life!

I hope this helps, please don't hesitate if you have any specific questions relating to the University of Reading which will help your decision!
