Academic Literacy and Language

Academic Literacies and Language supporting activities:

The Academic Literacies and Language Unit (ALLU) is located below the main campus library to address all literacy challenges that you may have encountered in writing, speaking or understanding the language of instruction or the language of the discipline. They offer additional language classes for all registered students. Students who require assistance in improving their report writing skills or general use of language are welcome to seek assistance. The reading and language laboratories are equipped with specialised programmes to help you improve your language skills. Lecturers and laboratory technicians help you accustom to the use of academic literacy and to digital literacy which aims to empower a student, to use technology to access information that supports learning and understanding. The language laboratories are the hub for the creative minds, as writing competitions, poetry sessions, and providing a host to other relevant engagements and celebrations.
