Each academic year you will be assigned a tutor. They are usually faculty lecturers who teach subjects in that particular year.
Some of your tutor’s duties include:
Provide you with guidance on academic, personal and/or professional aspects, individually or in a group.
Speak on your behalf to the Dean’s Office, the Secretariat and other faculty members.
Manage and carry out actions to support you throughout your university years.
Your tutor is the person to turn to when you have any problems or questions (about your studies, personal matters that may affect your academic performance, new ideas for improvement, etc.)
Lecturers are responsible for holding academic tutorials on the subjects they teach. These meetings focus on answering queries or solving problems related to the subject area, or on providing guidance and follow up on projects and assignments.
See your lecturers’ office hours and room numbers on the academic staff profiles.
Student Guidance and Support Service
In addition to assistance from your Faculty tutors, the University offers you the Student Guidance and Support Service. This service aims to support and assist you in making decisions that affect your academic performance and personal well-being.
The Student Guidance and Support Service also has a psychology section for student consultation. This service is offered free of charge and in full confidentiality. A doctor in Psychology is on hand to discuss all types of problems- emotional, social or academic- as well as your self-improvement and personal development.
