Mediterranean College has developed an integrated support system for undergraduate students, aiming at the successful completion of their studies in the British education system. The support system is based on:
- Academic support services
- Procedures to the student progress report
Academic support services
The contact details of the programme lecturers are available in the Programme Handbook. Office hours are announced on the first week of the semester on the announcement boards and the MC-Class.
Nevertheless, you are encouraged to keep regular contact with your tutor and not hesitate to contact him/her for:
- Information and advice on the programme of studies, the content of modules, the teaching and assessment methods applied.
- Support in the enhancement of your academic skills, for example, in research, writing, presentation, preparation for exams, etc.
- Support with any personal issues you are dealing with and probably affect your performance.
- Information on professional and personal development issues.
The contact details and the office hours of your Personal Tutor are available in the Programme Administrator/ Archive or the announcements boards.
- Be informed on their performance in English
- Take part in tests to get an assessment on their level
- Be personally trained in their individual weaknesses (e.g. essay writing)
- Declare their interest to participate in English tutorials
- Declare their interest to participate in City & Guilds certification exams and the preparatory courses organized
English department has drop-in hours. Hours and activities are available on the announcement board of the department.
The above factors led us to design a support framework with services that will help students understand modules better and improve those skills that constitute prerequisites for a success on university level.
Students are encouraged to use these services, which include:
- Academic Writing Skills Workshops. Seminars & workshops for academic writing (essays, reports, dissertations).
- Academic Reading Skills. Seminars & workshops for academic reading.
- Citing & Referencing Workshops. Seminars & workshops for proper citing and referencing.
- Research Skills Workshops. Seminars & workshops for the development of research skills.
- Presentation Skills Workshops. Seminars & workshops for oral or poster presentation of projects.
The scheduled seminars and workshops are available on the MC-Class and the announcements boards. Students can also be individually supported in the above issues by their Programme Leader and/or Personal Tutor or find useful information in relevant sections of the partner University digital library.
Progress Report Procedures
Students may get information on the policy of “draft submission” from their Programme Leader and on the applicable deadlines from the announcement boards, the lecturers or the Programme Administrator.
Students may get information on the policy of “mock exams” from their Programme Leader and on the exam dates from the announcement boards, the lecturers or the Programme Administrator.
Feedback is given by lecturers either orally or in written, in the class or during the office hours.
If you want your parents/ guardians not to be informed on your studies, you may submit a formal declaration at the Programme Administrator.
