Undergraduate Advising

We consider undergraduate advising as the dynamic relationship between a student and adviser. The main focus of advising is on helping students identify life goals, acquire skills and attitudes that promote intellectual growth, and become academically successful.

The 2+2 For Undergraduate Students

Some undergraduate students prefer to remain at one campus for all four years, while others may want to spend their first two years at one campus and transition to another overseas University for their remaining two years. We call it the 2+2 plan. In order to support our students in this regard, we are in the process of putting in place necessary arrangements with a number of overseas universities.
