Academic Learning Center (ALC)

The Academic Learning Center’s role is to support CPS students with all aspects of their learning needs. It is located in room 2.107 (Block 2 – First Floor).

When Can Students Visit the ALC?

Each week the ALC is open for students to seek advice from an experienced ALC instructor. There are drop-in sessions and individual tutorials where students can talk to a tutor about their development as a learner, a particular problem they are facing, or an assessment they are working on.

Other Activities in the ALC
  • regular workshops on topics relevant to student needs,
  • a short story club in which students read and discuss notable works of literature with an instructor,
  • discussion groups in which students can practice their spoken English and debating skills
  • an ALC newspaper which encourages creative writing
Guided Readers

The ALC also lends out guided readers to students who wish to improve their reading speed and vocabulary.
