Mentorship Scheme

Academic Advisor


A two-level Academic Advisor System was implemented by the University in 2012-13. Every student is assigned to an Academic Advisor (Level I Advisor) who meets with the students at least once an academic year for purposes of general supervision such as course selection, guided study, adaptation to University learning modes and disciplinary fundamentals, etc. Academic Advisors also provide a basic level of pastoral care to foster students’ personal growth. If the students need further assistance, they will be referred to Level II Advisor.

Year Coordinator


In addition to Academic Advisory System implemented by the University in 2012, a Year Coordinator system was introduced for undergraduate programmes of our School in 2016 to maintain continuous rapport with students throughout their 4-year studies. A Year Coordinator will take care of all students in the same year of study. Similar to the mechanism of Academic Advisory System, the Year Coordinators work together with academic level II advisors to provide students with extra support or refer students to external services. Regular official Teacher-and-Student gatherings will be organised to facilitate the communication between Year Coordinators and students in respective year of study.

List of Year Coordinators in 2022-23:

BSc in Public Health

BSc in Community Health Practice

BSc in Gerontology
