Welcome Message from the Student Support Services Manager
Extended First Year Virtual Orientation Schedule (via Zoom) From 06 Apr to 23 Apr 2021
What do they do?
With the start of university life comes exciting possibilities – new friends, new experiences, increased independence, young ‘adult’ status… the list goes on. Of course, there are bound to be challenges too (all quite ‘normal’ and to be expected) – the responsibility for your own learning and well-being, meeting deadlines, dealing with content that is different to the subjects you studied at school, uncertainty about your career choice, poor study habits, being away from home, adjusting to a new environment, partner problems, peer pressure to do something you might not wish to do… here again we could have a long list!
The student counsellors at Student Support Services offices are registered psychologists who offer a free and confidential service to help you to adjust to your new environment, navigate it successfully, and work with any challenges you might experience.
PLUS: The Student Support Services has a Career Development Officer (CDO) who links you with the world of work from year 1! Think career exhibitions, employment and bursary opportunities, and workshops to develop and market your skills and yourself!
