English language support

Undertaking a doctorate is a challenge for everyone, and even more so if you are not writing it in your first language. As an international/EU doctoral researcher at Reading, you can access a range of English language support services and resources during the course of your doctorate at no extra cost.

The Department library is open for reference to members of the Department, 08:00 to 18:00, Monday to Friday. The Meteorology Librarian is Catherine Turner - her working hours are Tuesdays and Fridays 8:30 - 13:30.

Rachel Redrup, the Academic Liaison Librarian for Meteorology, holds a drop-in session in the Meteorology coffee area, Fridays in term time, 11.15-12.15.
