Student Support Services

Student Support Services are a cluster of facilities and activities that are provided to facilitate the learning experience. These services support the holistic development of the student and are augmented by available academic support. Provision is made for a wide range of support services, teaching resources and learning resources that promote students’ academic skill and success at all levels of study. Additional support ranging from managing the challenges of distance studies, to professional individual and group counselling services are made available to students.

Support services serve as the interface between the institution and its students. This interface is achieved through the Student Information Desk.
