    • The difference in reading at university level
      • There is a greater reading load at university in both quantity and complexity.
      • Unlike the reading of a novel, academic reading requires you to be an active reader instead of a passive reader. The term active reading covers a broad range of reading strategies designed to improve comprehension and retention by increasing the reader's involvement in the text.
      • For academic reading you do not read a book from cover to cover and from page 1 to the end. You must act as a detective who is investigating the themes and topics which make links with the course outline objectives.
