Academic Counselling

Academic Counselling plays an important part in a student’s registration and academic performance at the University of Nicosia.

Each student receives planning and academic counselling from the academic counsellors, the Head of Department and the Programme Coordinator. The academic officer/counsellor assists students in pre-registration and registration, counsels them with regard to the student’s schedule and degree requirements, in case they cannot utilise the on-line services. The Head of Department and the Programme Coordinator are the senior faculty members for each programme and counsel students in their major area of specialisation.

Student Success Centre

The Student Success Centre (SSC) assists students in achieving their academic goals though tutorial services and workshops.

The staff members of the SSC are committed to enable students to succeed at the university. Working primarily with first year students, the centre provides transition to university programmes, counselling, and academic skills training to the student population through several programmes.

Services Offered

a) Workshops

Workshops target diverse audiences, covering fundamental skills topics that are essential ingredients for academic excellence. The collaborative academic efforts of various departments bring programming to students in the classrooms, residence halls, and the SSC.

b) Tutoring – Math Lab and Writing Lab

Peer tutors provide academic support and guidance to students for their math and writing problems. Students get the personal attention they deserve to ensure their success.
