EdSoc is a society for anyone who is studying education and for people considering studying education. We aim to break down the barriers that separate education students at Reading and have a great time doing it. We are one of the fastest growing societies and it is clear to see why. We run society events such as trips as well as socials.

Our Aims:

  1. Broadening our teaching and professional development through education and classroom themed activities.
  2. Building partnerships throughout the whole of the University.
  3. Connecting all those with an interest in Education through fun, social events.
