Academic Advising

Academic advising at PolyU, “aims to help students to make informed and intelligent academic decisions/choices about their study at PolyU that suit their intellectual, professional and personal goals. It is instrumental to promoting student success, and plays a vital role in enhancing students’ overall learning experience at PolyU” (Learning and Teaching Committee Paper LTC/42/A4).

To empower students to fulfil the General University Requirements (GUR) and the Discipline Specific Requirements (DSR), there is a dual system of academic advising at PolyU – department-based academic advising (primarily for major programme matters) and academic advising at the institutional level operated by the Office of General University Requirements (OGUR).

Effective academic advising requires an active participation of student advisees in the processes. To enable you to maximize your gain from academic advising, please note your responsibilities in academic advising as follows:

  1. Clarify personal abilities, interests, and goals for academics and life.
  2. Contact and schedule regular appointments with your Departmental Academic Advisor and the OGUR Academic Counsellor each year as required or when in need of assistance.
  3. Prepare for advising sessions. Understand and review their academic progress before meeting their Academic Advisor/ Counsellor. Study the Definitive Programme Document (DPD).
  4. Become knowledgeable and adhere to institutional policies, procedures, and requirements.
  5. Have an open mind and be ready to consider advice given by teachers, Academic Advisors/ Counsellors and other staff.
  6. Read your PolyU e-mails and other important communications from the University and your Academic Advisor and the OGUR Academic Counsellor.
  7. Access and use eStudent for academic updates, information updating, registration, and other purposes.
  8. Accept final responsibility for all decisions made and your graduation requirements.

Academic Advisors are expected to:

  1. Have a clear understanding of:
    1. study pathways;
    2. discipline-specific requirements;
    3. University policies on undergraduate studies; and
    4. opportunities and resources within the University.
  2. Communicate effectively, listen to the students and respect their views and choices.
  3. Uphold the core values of Academic Advising (e.g. respect, empathy) within PolyU.
  4. Assist students to identify their academic, career, and personal goals and help them develop plans to achieve these goals.
  5. Assist students to understand their academic performance and areas of strengths.
  6. Assist students to understand the graduation requirements and auditing process.
  7. Keep accurate record about sessions of Academic Advising.
  8. Be available to answer the questions of students through different means.
  9. Make appropriate referrals when necessary.
  10. Strive for excellence in Academic Advising.
