Reading University has a long tradition of excellence and is one of the leading student rowing clubs in the country. The fabulous facilities on a prime stretch of the River Thames, and the unrivalled fleet of boats, enable top performances on the water.

RUBC thrives on the tight-knit student community, whilst maintaining the work ethos of a professional sports program, making for a winning combination.

The University is committed to the development of sporting excellence amongst its students, and each year offers a number of Sports Scholarships to students who show, or have shown, outstanding talent in rowing. These offer individuals up to £5000 as well as lots of extra support.

Students have rated Reading University as one of the best places to study in the country, according to the Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey 2012. Reading was placed 12th out of 105 UK universities, ahead of Durham, Newcastle, Brookes and IC.
