Counselling Services

Counsellors assist students with a wide variety of educational life/career and personal concerns. Counselors are available by drop-in or appointment (recommended).  Students can benefit from the following services:

Educational Counselling

We provide assistance in choosing the courses and programs best suited to a student’s abilities and occupational interests. Assistance and strategies are offered on over-coming difficulties in learning, studying and taking exams.

Life / Career Counselling

We help and encourage students to explore values, beliefs, interests, abilities, and strengths through counselling, computer-assisted research, and resource information.

Personal Counselling

We assist students who are experiencing personal difficulties which interfere with learning progress. All discussions between students and counselors will be kept confidential, whenever possible.
