If you are worried about your students’ academic performance, please talk to them and encourage them to seek advice from the Faculty Academic Adviser. It is important for students to learn to balance their commitments and needs, and to take responsibility for their studies and time management. The Faculty and the Academic Advisers will not answer your questions about the student’s academic performance, as we need to respect student privacy and personal data. Faculties and the Academic Advising Office may only answer questions about University rules and regulations.
If you notice them having adjustment, mood or emotional issues, encourage them to seek help as soon as possible. The Centre of Development and Resources for Students (CEDARS) provides counselling service to support and assist students to face these challenges.
