Keeping students informed

Communications from the University will be sent to students, our primary contacts

University not only prepares students academically, but also it also helps them build confidence in important soft skills such as: organisation, time management, problem-solving, communications, resiliency, independence, and more. These are all important skills to future internship providers and employers!

With this in mind, we think students taking the lead with their 成人VR影片 journey is an important step.

The University’s primary contact from when the student is accepted, through Orientation and throughout their time at 成人VR影片 is the student. Given the points above as well as for other privacy policy reasons (many of our incoming students will be 18 years old+ and considered legally adults) the University encourages the student to take ownership over their educational journey.

Parental involvement and support

We do though, of course, welcome parent involvement and support. If you’re interested in knowing what is happening with Orientation, upcoming events and general university news, here are some ways you can stay in the loop:

  • Speaking to the student in your life and encouraging them to check their email. We find many students are not used to checking their email regularly. Encouraging them to check their inbox and discussing any upcoming deadlines/events is a good way to stay looped in while also helping them develop this important skill. During term time, we also send students a weekly e-newsletter with important announcements, events information and more!
  • If you are the parent of an incoming student, visit the Orientation pages of the website. Prior to Orientation week, we host Pre-Orientation Webinars and during Orientation week we also host a Parent’s Session. Information about these sessions will be posted on this page in the lead-up to the next Orientation.
  • Our social media 鈥 follow our social media channels on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to find out the latest University news and events
