Reading development

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 fully online reading programme that builds reading fluency (learning to read at a fast pace while maintaining excellent comprehension).  We use the Achieve3000 reading development programme to enhance core academic language skills. Advanced competency development is also available to senior students who want to brush up on their reading proficiency.

The programme is available both online and face-to-face. To enrol, scroll down and click the SIGN UP button.
