In Higher Education students encounter large reading materials which require them to be independent readers. Therefore, this makes reading an important academic activity at higher education institutions. Students in this sector engage with different texts and books in their academic years, primarily to acquire information and knowledge. However, they appear not to read other materials to gain insight and for pleasure. Engaging students in reading activities is of importance, hence, reading projects are essential to enhance their reading habits. The research was conducted at University of Technology, to investigate the role of reading projects at tertiary level regarding students learning and reading ability. The study used a qualitative method design to explore the students’ engagement in reading projects as to enhance their learning at the Central University of Technology, Free State. Focus group interviews were conducted with Reading Club members involved in reading projects. The findings of this study revealed that the reading projects made reading a shared pleasure, team effort and encouraged metacognitive focus upon learning. The study further provided insight into the role reading projects play in enhancing learning and promoting academic success.
