Recruitment of Student Academic Advisers for 2019-20

(Application closed on March 15, 2019)

From 2018-19, the Faculty appoints Student Academic Advisers as an advising source. 

How does chatting with Student Academic Adviers be different than chatting with ordinary students? 

Current Year 1 - 3 students who are willing to help others deal with study problems can apply for being Student Academic Advisers in 2019-20. The Faculty will consider their academic and interview performance and arrange a training to successful candidates. Candidates who complete the training will be recognized as Student Academic Advisers. Hence, advice from Student  Academic Advisers can be more accurate.

What "study problems" can Student Academic Advisers advise on?

Possible areas for advising include: how to adapt to the university life, course selection, major/minor options, exchanges and experiential learning opportunities, time management, etc.

Student Academic Advisers can advise students to consult other available sources, e.g. Faculty Academic Advisers, UG Coordinators, Residential Student Adviser, CEDARS, Academic Advising Office (AAO), course-offering offices and the Faculty Office.

Students Academic Advisers can also refer some complicated cases to the Faculty Office to follow up.

How can students consult Student Academic Advisers?

The Faculty will post the list of Student Academic Advisers, including a very brief profile of them, on the website, so students can contact Student Academic Advisers via email. In addition, the Faculty will introduce Student Academic Advisers on the Faculty orientation activities in August. During the add/drop periods, the Faculty will arrange a room for Student Academic Advisers to provide walk-in advising,
