Overview

Most university courses require a great deal of reading and students with well-developed reading skills find it easier to cope with the demands of higher education.    

The Reading Development Centre provides reading enrichment with a computerised reading program that builds reading fluency (learning to read at a fast pace while maintaining excellent comprehension).  The Reading Development Centre administers the reading development.

Reading development is also available to senior students who want to brush up on their reading proficiency.
