Non-academic Opportunities

Voluntary Services

It is important for us to provide students with a positive campus experience encompassing both academic and non-academic aspects. Non-academic activities such as voluntary services are offered for students with SEN to foster their engagement in communication and collaboration with others. These experiences are truly valuable as they shall enhance the soft skills and interpersonal skills of students with SEN.

Mental Health First Aid Course

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) teaches participants how to assist people who are developing a mental health problem, experiencing a worsening of an existing mental health problem or in a mental health crisis, until appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves. You are welcome to join our Course if you would like to strengthen your knowledge and apply the skills when helping those in need.
