Student Support System

Student support

Students enrolled on the Global Innovation Joint-Degree Program (GIP-TRIAD) receive support in their academic and everyday life, particularly from the Student Support Committee. Each student is assigned with a tutor student and a faculty mentor to help get his or her academic and student life off to a smooth start. Regarding financial support, we introduce applicable scholarships to each student, and provide financial support at such time that a scholarship payable from the program becomes available. We also support the mental health of our students and introduce a counselor if the need arises.
