Apart from giving general and individual advice, the School can give extra help to prepare your CV and improve your application and interview techniques. We have internet facilities which you can use for collecting information.
Counselling and Advice
The School provides you with the opportunity to receive help with any problems you may be experiencing. If you feel lonely, homesick, anxious, depressed, stressed or experience problem with your studies, come and see us. We will try to help you with any of these problems. The welfare service provides a comprehensive service to all students and offers information, help, and advice on a wide range of different subjects including external problems involving welfare rights, financial difficulties, legal questions, Home Office related issues, and also with the School's procedures and regulations. We have established many contacts with outside agencies so that, where necessary, specialist referrals can be made.
Disabled Student Support
The School provides advice and support to students with disabilities, physical difficulties, long-term medical conditions, sensory impairments or specific learning difficulties (e.g. dyslexia). This includes advice on course-related study needs and assessments for students applying for support.
Support can include, but is not restricted to:
advice on course-related study needs
liaison with tutors and funding authorities
special provision for examinations
English Language Support
All tuitions and examinations at the School are in English, so a sound command of English language is essential to succeed in your course of study. The English that you use in higher education can sometimes be very different to the English that you have learned at your previous educational institutions. You need to be able to cope with reading, note-taking from lectures, books, journals and other materials, and be able to participate meaningfully in classroom discussions.
