Other Services to Students
CAREER COUNSELING & INDIVIDUAL ADVISING
In order to provide students with maximum assistance regarding career choices, job search and academic counseling (etc.), OCSAR has been conducting individual advising program officially from Summer 2013. This advising is not restricted to career services and academic help only but also goes beyond that to help students explore their strengths, interests, weakness and transferable skills. Students can seek help for personal issues too, especially if these, as is often the case, impact on their academic grades and performance. The facilitators and advisors, who are the core staff of the OCSAR guide students to enhance self-awareness and rationalize their choices and pursue suitable career paths. The advisors will always be open to aid students, as well as to encourage and motivate them in all that they pursue professionally and even personally if required. OCSAR works closely with the Counseling unit and makes relevant referrals for psycho-social counseling of graduating students if needed.
