COURSE TESTIMONIES

Christina Wingrove|Trainee Private Banking Manager, Lloyds TSB

'I was attracted to the Business School by its strong reputation and the programme in particular as it offered a wide range of options during the second and third years of study. Not only was the standard of teaching high, the flexibility and support of me as an individual from the School also made it a great place to study. I also found the content and the structure of the tutorials really useful in reinforcing the lecture content and giving a deeper insight. I joined Lloyds TSB's graduate scheme after graduating. I am now in my third and final placement as part of the scheme and am set to continue in a permanent role as a Trainee Private Banking Manager.'

Davide Serafini|Assurance Executive, Ernst & Young

'I had friends that came to Reading and they told me that the environment, both academic and social, was amazing. I would highly recommend the School to anyone, for 3 main reasons. Firstly, the learning environment and the teaching quality were excellent. Lecturers are always available for discussion, lectures are interesting and interactive, and the resources available to students are top quality. Secondly, the social life, from sports clubs to social clubs, is truly diverse. Thirdly, the reputation of the University, and especially the Business School. Graduates are highly sought after by employers in the UK and internationally.'
