Every undergraduate course at the University of Reading offers a placement – whether as a compulsory part of the programme or as an optional opportunity. Placements offer you the chance to get real-world experience, increase your employability and enhance your CV.
Placement opportunities – be these summer or year-long – are plentiful for students studying Geography at Reading. Previous students have spent valuable time at companies including Sustainable Homes, Hydro-Logic and ONS - and return to campus able to bring further skills and confidence into their studies.
There’s also the chance to get involved in exciting research projects. Past students have worked with the likes of Thames Water, Earth Trust and the Environment Agency on topics they are passionate about.
