New Courses for the Autumn Term 2020 - Now Booking

Courses for the Autumn Term will be online, using the Canvas and Zoom platform.

Reading Branch had planned for a programme of short courses and study days to be presented in our usual venues. Some of these events have been converted into online courses. Others have been postponed.

We are now listing the converted courses on this site for the convenience of our students.
