Enabling student success through an innovative Student Resource Hub
There are many pedagogical processes that can act to prevent academic success, such as a lack of preparation for higher education. Additionally, our students are from diverse backgrounds and therefore have needs as diverse as their backgrounds.
Academic support can be defined as the educational support and skills required for students to pass. In aid of this, the University of Cape Town offers a range of support programmes for students, from the extended curriculum programme to the services offered by the office for student support and development.
The Student Hub at the Health Sciences Faculty aims to create an environment where students feel more than nominally supported, can obtain the help they need, and be taught skills that will aid in equipping them professionally. What differentiates the Hub from other support structures is that it re-envisions student support by empowering students to support students.
We surveyed Health Sciences Faculty students to discover their needs. Some of the survey results are shown here:
- Anatomy Building, Foyer & Tut Room 2, Mon-Fri 12h00 – 17h00
