Travel to UTC Reading
We actively encourage students to use environmentally friendly modes of transport such as car sharing and cycling. If you choose to cycle, we have plenty of bike racks at the UTC.
You can also hire a bike through Ready Bike; the nearest docking station to the UTC is in Palmer Park.
Post 16 bursary
Sixth Form students who face financial barriers that prevent them from continuing in Post 16 education can apply for a bursary. Full details and an application form can be found here.
Support with travel costs
We are continuing to talk to all local councils in the area about the UTC, but as this is a new type of institution there are no clear precedents and some are still developing their approach.
We recommend that you should contact your local authority as soon as possible if you are thinking of applying to join the UTC. This will be especially important if your child has special educational needs or if you currently receive help with transport and wish to transfer to the UTC.
