Summer Schools

China

We have an ever increasing number of opportunities for studying abroad throughout the world which will enable you to have an international experience as part of your degree.

You can study abroad for shorter periods of time either within a module or during the summer vacation. Some of these programmes will be available through your School/Department.

The Erasmus & Study Abroad Office promotes summer opportunities available to all Reading students, across all disciplines.

The list of Summer Schools for 2020 will be available later in the year.

In summer 2019, we’re offering the following programmes:

“To say that my visit to China was amazing is an understatement. I have definitely been challenged in many ways. My understanding of certain Chinese culture has increased. China is such a beautiful place filled with such beautiful people and fascinating traditions and customs. I feel so honoured to have been given a place on this Scholarship. It was such a life changing opportunity.”

Chi Chi Okwuonu, studied in China in 2018

“I can really notice how impactful the trip was on me. Not only has it given me new friends from across the world, a new knowledge of creativity, new memories that not even a picture can explain but also something even more irreplaceable – a hunger for wandering.”

Megan Webb, studied in Denmark in 2017
