Good college and value for money.
Tips: I have become a more responsible person once I reached here. In terms of knowledge, I can say I have gained practical experience in different domains which were new to me. I did get a scholarship of 3000 pounds and that was based on my IELTS score and I can say I am fully satisfied with it.
Likes (Quality of faculty): The faculty is quite approachable. They give out their time when the students can actually go out to them and ask queries. Diversity in teaching style and methodology is present as various methods are taught for the same subject and it enhances our knowledge.
Dislikes (Internships): In terms of applying for the internships, the help is given by the university. Also Reading being closer to London gives the opportunity to apply for jobs in a wider range of companies and in various domains. Some internships are indeed present in the field of study.

Course modules are good for this course
Tips: Make sure to have knowledge of modules before joining. Professors only read the ppts they have made, we have to apply those practically to understand. Exam patterns/assignments are different than what we have in our country. So you have to make extra efforts to excel in the course modules.

University of Reading: Home to new experiences! Become bold and confident.
Tips: Be more open to new environments, cultures, and academic styles. Joining different clubs can make the transition easier. Received a scholarship of £4000 by applying to centenary and subject scholarships through the university website. The structure for the course is good but I wish it included more practical work throughout course.
Likes (Indian Food): Lot of options for Indian food, and Indian grocery stores are also available within a reasonable distance. Many restaurants offer Indian food and are also suitable for vegetarians. I was also lucky enough to be able to do part-time in an Indian restaurant as part of the front office.
Dislikes (Internships): Although the university publishes opportunities that are available for students, they are most often not for master’s students and very less opportunities for overseas students. And as an international student, you will not be able to apply for internships due to work permit restrictions.

Genuine Review of my experience
Tips: You can expect the best possible university experience. But you should be prepared to work hard and be independent and self-reliant. Friendly atmosphere, great faculty, excellent laboratory equipment, Great Modules, top class Library, workshops and practical work.
Likes (Public transportation): Public Transportation in Reading is superb. Cheap and readily available. 24/7 bus service to all parts of reading town. There is a bus which will directly take you to the Campus. You will get a bus every 15 minds. You can get bus pass for a week or monthly at affordable price.
Dislikes (Internships): The are guidance available. But there is no placement cell for my department. There are no internships available for students who passed out. That's one issue. We often get job and career fares, but they mostly help us to interact with people from different companies. But they don't really hire you.
