Module overview

This module is non-credit bearing and forms part of the Pre-sessional 16 Programme in which you study Academic Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing. You also attend Independent Learning workshops to develop the critical thinking and study skills necessary to succeed at university in the UK. Academic reading is taught in conjunction with academic writing as these skills often overlap; for example, academic reading leads to academic writing in the form of researched essays, reports and dissertations, so the two skill areas are taught together. This means that the separate Reading and Writing modules will appear on your timetable as a combined ‘Reading and Writing’ sessions. The Academic Reading module follows the University of Southampton Pre-sessional 16 Reading and Writing syllabus and has specific assessments for this module.
