Counselling and Support Tutor
NCI University in London provides counselling services through our Student Office to those students who fall back in their studies. This service is designated for those students who have ability to follow the course, but for some reasons they have failed to perform well. Our faculty members usually hold meetings with the students concerned and try to understand why the students have failed to maintain required level of progress. Once a reason has been detected the tutors involved will then provide advice and necessary support, or give indication to academic personnel of required student assistance, if it is purely an academic matter.
If at any time, you experience mental distress, student services can also make recommendations and referrals to the appropriate mental health service.
