​​​​​​​​Centre for Student Counselling and Development

The Centre for Student Counselling and Development (CSCD) aims to provide psychological services, development services and career-planning services to current and prospective students where possible, in order to promote a well-informed, psychologically healthy community.

​The functions of the CSCD can be broadly divided into seven services:

  • Academic counselling;
  • Occupational guidance and development;
  • Individual and/or group therapy;
  • Contemporary developmental workshops;
  • An Office for Students with Special Learning Needs;
  • Consultations;
  • Training and supervision of intern psychologists.

The services offered, including group and individual therapy, are generally free of charge for all registered students. If you need to consult a psychiatrist, a fee will be levied. Some of the workshops and occupational guidance also require a fee.​
