 Services to Prospective Students

Selection Test

The Wellness Centre offers a service aimed at improving the reading and studying techniques of students.

The aim is to give students the opportunity to improve their reading speed and reading comprehension as much as possible in a controlled and scientific manner. Reading and study courses are offered on a regular basis, and the service is free of charge.

The Centre also has two computerised reading laboratories where students can improve their reading and studying techniques with the aid of computerised reading programs.

CUT has various academic support programmes in place, with proven success for those attending regularly. Study guidance, motivation techniques and exam-writing skills are just a few of the programmes offered.

The spiritual needs of students are critical to us. Students are encouraged to participate in the services that are offered by various churches in collaboration with the Wellness Centre.

The Chaplaincy Office is vested with the Wellness Centre. The aim of this office is to give all denominations and religions the necessary information regarding campus activities for Christian and other faith groups. Students are also motivated to participate in religion-oriented activities. The Office also serves as a refuge where all staff and students can find help and support.

The main task of the social worker is to ensure the social wellbeing of students by promoting a healthy and conducive environment throughout their years of study.

Social Services can help you in the following:

  • Rape counselling
  • Poverty/financial problems
  • Pre- and post-abortion counselling
  • Bereavement
  • Community outreach projects.

All services are confidential and are available free of charge to CUT students on an appointment basis.
