Academic Support

Tel: (+968)26850100 – Ext: 250
Office: LRC, 2nd Floor

Academic Support Services is located in the Learning Resources Centre and collaborates with faculty and foundation program staff to offer a range of extracurricular and holistic support for all students to enable them achieve their educational and personal goals.

Many activities are arranged weekly in the Learning Support Majlis, Writing Studio, Technology Training Centre and other centres and training rooms to meet the needs of students. These include workshops on skills and competency development, IELTS skills development, the use of technology, making presentations, enhancing reading and critical thinking skills, effective writing, managing time and stress, the art of positive thinking and much more.

In addition, a Research Corner is open weekly in the LRC Writing Studio to provide students with access to support and feedback on academic writing assignments and to help them to further develop independent academic writing skills. Students are given assistance to interpret assignment directions and requirements, brainstorm ideas for writing strategies, understand the mechanics of grammar and vocabulary, and guidelines for finding appropriate secondary research sources.

Academic Support Service works with Students as Partners to help identify and provide a comprehensive program of activities, workshops, tutoring and mentoring. Peer Tutoring is a popular platform where students are tutored and supported by their colleagues with the aim of encouraging and promoting autonomous learning. Students also collaborate with Academic Support Services to run a number of student-led initiatives such as I Dare to Speak.

We value our student feedback
