Health Clinics


The University’s approach is to provide for the needs of all students in a holistic way. Student counselling, career assessment, and degree planning assistance are available, but it is up to students to avail themselves of these opportunities. Health clinics, support groups and employment programmes form an integral part of the caring campus environment. Disabled students are welcome and the University is committed to responding to their needs. More detailed information is available at
