With the number of alternative pathways now available for entry into Australian universities, the number of international students is steadily increasing. This article reports on the undergraduate results of a teaching project at the University of Canberra, Australia, and explored whether the introduction of a discipline-based reading program into an existing university preparation course would result in an improvement in international students' learning in the discipline and increase their proficiency in the English language.
