The top university in the ‘Sunshine State’, the University of Florida (UF) is a new exchange partner that can offer many Reading students a wonderful American campus experience. Part of the prestigious Association of American Universities (AAU), UF is one of the USA’s largest universities, but is also consistently ranked as one of the best.

Situated on a 2,000-acre campus in Gainesville, Florida, UF has everything you would expect from a major US institution. With over 50,000 students, it can offer an experience very different to many of our existing exchange partners across the world. UF offers numerous top quality academic and support services, as well as a broad range of modules across a wide selection of subject areas.

With local transport links enabling travel within Florida and beyond, Gainesville has a thriving music and arts scene, as well as historic architecture, pristine parks and numerous places to socialise.

With an excellent all-year round climate, see if you can be part of the ‘Gator Nation’…
