To Students Wishing to Visit the Student Counseling Room
The Student Counselling Room will be open every day from July 1, 2020.
Considering the situation of COVID-19, in principle, we will be conducting all counselling via phone. If necessary, we will also be using Zoom. We hope to restart face-to-face counselling once safety measures are fully implemented.
In difficult times like this, with the possibility of a second wave, it is said that we will have to live with this virus for the next few years. It is normal to feel stressed under these circumstances, having to rethink future plans and push through with activities with no certainty.
There is a need, more than ever, to think and decide for ourselves in these times. Please do not hesitate to seek help from close family, friends, and teachers. If there is anything that you would like to share or talk about, the Student Counseling Room is here for you.
Depending on the spread of the virus, there may be changes in opening hours. If there is no answer when you call, please use the booking form.
