I hope they expect the correct use of capital letters at Reading University. My grandmother did teacher training there and enjoyed it, but that was many years ago.

All unis rankings depend on what you want to do. Oxford is great at academic stuff, for example, but less good at things like the arts. https://www.thecompleteuniversityguide.co.uk is a good place to start, but always go and visit and see if you like the uni personally on open days

Is reading university good?
Hi,

I am a current student at the University of Reading studying Speech and Language Therapy and in my 3rd year. I personally think the university is great, its a very research based university which means that lecturers are often lecturing using current and fresh supporting research. The university is a campus university, which means that all academic buildings and halls are in one place... no travelling across Reading to your halls and lectures! The university campus is stunning and has a beautiful lake in the centre of campus, the green aspect of the university was one of my main reasons for choosing the university.

Whether Reading University is good for you really depends upon your course and what you want from the university experience. I would really recommend attending an open day to get a feel for the university and courses. We have two open days coming up, one this weekend on the 5th of October and one next weekend on the 12th of October if you did want to visit the campus. Here is the university website too so that you can get a further feel for the university and more information on the open days.

I really want to go to reading but i'm worried my predicted grades (BBB) are too low..., can i have some tips and advice on how to make my personal statement appealing and what you are looking for in one for speech and language therapy?

Yeah I just checked and realised they are good at the arts as well. It was a bad example but I was just trying to get across that not all universities are good at everything

Hi,

I cant comment on the predicted grades as it really does vary year on year, you'd be best off talking to the department directly if you are concerned about any grades. Here is the link to contact them https://www.reading.ac.uk/forms/crm/question.aspx

With Speech and Language Therapy they really do take into account your statement as much as the grades. Because as I'm sure you know there is so much more to being a speech therapist than just academics. In terms of your personal statement my top tips would be to write about any experience you have related to Speech and Language Therapy, volunteering, paid work, personal experiences. If possible talk about both adult and child related experience as the course is a mix of both. Look up the NHS 5c's and try to incorporate those into your statement where possible. But I can't stress enough that it really isn't a decision made on just your grades when it comes to Speech and Language Therapy.

If you have any more questions I am more than happy to answer them,

I got an offer on the predicted grades of CCB for Business management and ended up getting in this year so i think you should be okay. They've recently invested a lot of money into buildings etc so they really want to fill spaces for the next few years, you gotta remember a university is essentially a business so to an extent they will be lenient with grades as long as they get your money lol
