Don’t forget your Support Centres!

It’s key that you know about the exciting changes to student support that took place over the summer!

The University has committed to making significant improvements to the student experience by investing in five brand new Support Centres for teaching and learning support.

The new Support Centres opened on 1 August 2017, ready for new students and those returning for the new academic year in September.

The Support Centres are your first ports of call for all queries, where dedicated Student Support Coordinators will be able to offer advice and help signpost on a range of academic and non-academic issues including:

  • Coursework and exams
  • Disability assistance
  • Extenuating circumstances
  • Financial support
  • Placements and internships (each school has a dedicated Placement Officer to help support you with this)
  • Programme advice
  • Timetable queries
  • Welfare and wellbeing

The Student Support Coordinators are members of staff who are trained to deal with student enquiries and who have previously worked in School offices to support you and your School.

You can visit any of the five Support Centre locations for assistance, depending on which is most convenient for you.

Please note – If you are a Henley Business School student you should continue to visit your existing Support Centre located in HBS as you have done previously.

Students studying on Finance degree programmes should visit the first floor deck of the ICMA Centre building.  Our Programme Administrators are there to help you with a range of academic and non-academic queries.

The Admin Decks in both the Henley Business School and ICMA Centre buildings are open on weekdays from 9.00 – 5.00 pm throughout term-time and during vacation periods. You do not need an appointment, simply come by and one of the team will be happy to help you.

Postgraduate research students will need to contact the Graduate School in Old Whiteknights House. You can get hold of them by calling +44 (0)118 378 5063 or via the online form from the Graduate School website.

Pre-sessional English and International Foundation Programme students will need to go to the ISLI Admin Office (room 224) in the Edith Morley building. You can email them on isli@reading.ac.uk or call +44 (0)118 378 5289.
