Welcome to EdSoc!

EdSoc is a relaxed, friendly and enjoyable society for anyone who is interested in 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 run a variety of society events, different social events and some day trips based on education.

Our Aims:

  1. To unite people, across the University, who are interested in education.
  2. To create an enjoyable environment where connections and positive attitudes can be shared.
  3. To provide opportunities to continue professional development.
