Academic Advisers

Each student is assigned to a member of staff who would be the academic adviser throughout the duration of his/her study. In order to improve the level of inter-personal relationship and to provide additional help with the academic content of the courses, the faculty organizes weekly meetings between the Advisers and the students in the first semester. These are sometimes referred to as advisorials.

All academic advisers have scheduled office hours during which they are available to see the advisees. Such contact hours are usually posted on the University web site or on the door of the Adviser. During the second year, each student is still required to meet with the Adviser. Self-assessment forms will be used as basic for progress meetings from this stage. Each student is expected to fill this midway into each semester. In the last week of each academic year, there will be a Progressive Review Tutorial to receive advice on the outcome of the examinations.
