'Henley was known to me as a leading school teaching business and the fact it was part of the University of Reading attracted me. The best part of the programme was the opportunity to practically apply things. I learned something new every day and the lecturers were fantastic. I would rate the academic and career support offered very highly. I would recommend this programme because it doesn't just provide you with a great education in business; it works on providing a new way of viewing the world of business, contacts, practical skills and job opportunities.'

Christopher Neil|Senior Associate, PwC

'From the moment I attended an Open Day at the University I knew that the three years I was due to spend studying at Reading would be an enjoyable time in my life. The staff in the Business School were welcoming and a continuous help throughout my degree. With help from the Careers Advisory Service, I was assisted in finding my current job at PwC. Reading is a great place to be a student, with a vibrant and diverse campus lifestyle. I would have no hesitation in recommending the University of Reading to any prospective students, and always speak highly of my time there.'
