Student should contact the administration office if they require academic counselling or career guidance during their course. An appointment will be made for the student to meet with the Course Manager or a relevant lecturer. To better prepare our students for the industry we organise recruitment talks, industry visits and career counselling sessions during their course of studies.

During the pre-course counselling which happens after the students have submitted their application or indicated their intention to apply, the relevant staff or recruitment agents explain the school’s Fee Protection Scheme (FPS) procedures and address all other queries relating to FPS that the students may have.

The Staff-Student Mentoring Scheme is designed to facilitate informal out-of-classroom engagements with the ultimate goal of enriching the students’ learning experience in Orita Sinclair and to support the holistic development of the students.
