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 are one of the fastest growing societies and it is clear to see why. We run a variety of society events once every two weeks, such as trips as well as socials.

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 collaborate with societies and people who are not studying education
  4. To provide opportunities to continue professional development. 

Upcoming Events
