Student Affairs

(English Version Only)

Our School established various channels to assist students in their personal growth and development:

Student Affairs Academic Advisors Cohort Coordinator Mentorship



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.



Cohort Coordinator

In addition to Academic Advisory System implemented by the University in 2012, a cohort coordinator system was introduced for undergraduate programmes of our School in 2016 to maintain continuous rapport with students throughout their 4-year studies. A cohort coordinator will follow the year cohort until the students graduated from the University. Similar to the mechanism of Academic Advisory System, the cohort 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 Cohort Coordinators and all cohort members.

Mentors from Mentorship Scheme

The JC School of Public Health and Primary Care Undergraduate Programme Mentorship Scheme was established in 2010. It provides students with a valuable opportunity for establishing the network, exposing diverse perspectives and developing career plan. Each participating student is matched with an external mentor who is a public health professional. Students are invited to join the Mentorship Scheme on a voluntary basis. Two official gathering will be held each year.
