Psychosocial support

Programme Managers on campuses promote wellness and embrace campus cultures that prioritize wellbeing as a value in order to support students. We believe that students’ well-being can help increase academic performance, student retention in the programme, and increase the progression rate. Students who have a stronger sense of well-being tend to display higher motivation levels, increased self-esteem, and greater engagement and achievement.

Counselling

Students receive professional counselling from a skilled Programme Manager. They can discuss problems and issues they are experiencing in their lives with confidentiality.

02

Crisis reporting

Programme Managers play a significant role in supporting student learning, wellness, and development. Regardless of whether it is face-to-face or virtual, our Programme Managers are available to assist students during difficult times such as the death of a family member, encountering racial injustice, and other challenging circumstances

Our students are welcome to drop by the Programme Manager's office at any time to inquire about academic, social, personal, or professional development.
