Academic advising & counselling
Since students at any educational institution always have problems and issues either academic or social, providing guidance and support is essential. The decision of when, how and where to conduct counseling session with a student is normally based on the significance of the existing problem or case. Counseling sessions are conducted by the student counselors and generally aim to:
- Help the students to overcome any problems they might face either in their studies or in their social life which may have a direct influence on their academic performance.
- Deal with different types of students’ misconduct and try to help them improve their behavior.
- Help the students to take the right decisions regarding their study programs.
- Ensure that the students always adhere to the college rules and regulations, especially in terms of their relations with their teachers and colleagues.
Sometimes the student counselor decides that the counseling session should be attended by a third party who is, in most cases, connected to the student’s case such as the class teacher or the head of the respective academic department.
For every department, there is a dedicated counsellor as following:
Haneefa Abbas Ali Al Balushi

Port, Shipping & Transport Department
Ms. Wafaa Rashid Mohammed Al Qasmi
Process Operations Technologies Department
