Academic Advising / Mentoring Programme

Academic Advising/ Mentoring Programme provides assistance to students in adapting to the University life and giving them advice on academic, social and personal matters. All students are expected to join the advising/mentoring activit(ies) organised by their Departments/Programmes concerned for at least 6-10 hours in a given academic year (preferably the first year of study). Since individual Departments/Programmes may have the specific regulations/guidelines for their students under the Academic Advising/Mentoring Programme, students are thus strongly advised to contact their Departments/Programme Offices for details.

The objectives of the Programme at HKBU:

  • To assist undergraduate students make smooth transitions from school to University and to a Major;
  • To assist students choose programmes/courses that fit their interests and abilities; and
  • To assist students set attainable academic and personal goals.

The Faculty of Social Sciences offers three levels of advising personnel/parties that will collaborate to enhance students’ success in their university studies:
