During the ISA programs at the University of Reading, students have a wide list of course offerings to select from enabling students the opportunity to enroll in courses that fit their individual academic needs. All courses are taught at Reading by local university professors. ISA participants will take classes alongside British and other international students. Students should be flexible regarding their classes and should be prepared to leave final decisions about which courses you follow until arrival at Reading.
Students must have a minimum grade point average of 3.00.
Minimum Admissions Prerequisites
All applicants must have at least sophomore standing (second-year) at their home university.
Students participating in the academic year program are required to obtain a British Tier 4 Visa.
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
Some courses may require additional fees.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.
Please reference fall and spring course lists as not all courses are taught during both semesters.
Please note that some courses with locals have recommended prerequisite courses. It is the student's responsibility to consult any recommended prerequisites prior to enrolling in their course.
