Student and Academic Services (SAS) community comprises staff from the central department
(SASD) and schools, colleges and autonomous institutes. We take pride in providing services which cover the entire student life cycle from admission through matriculation to graduation & beyond the classroom.
Throughout the students’ journey with NTU, SAS supports various programmes that aid in shaping and inculcating desired skills and attributes (Communication, Civic-mindedness, Creativity, Character, and Competence) in our students. This will ready our graduates with the competencies to face the challenges of the hyper-globalised world in the 21st Century with optimism and confidence. However, graduation does not mark the end of our students’ journey with us as we continue to extend services to NTU graduates and encourage them to pursue lifelong learning to stay relevant and for professional and personal development.
SASD has both a strategic as well as operational role in the delivery of student and academic services. In its strategic role, SASD supports the development of policies, programs and initiatives and oversees the student and academic services performed across the University, promulgates student and academic rules and policies, and works closely with the Colleges and Schools to ensure that the policies and programmes are implemented in a timely and consistent manner. It is the custodian of the student administration system and plays a coordinating, developmental and advisory role to the Colleges and Schools. SASD also has an operational role, delivering a wide range of centralised services.
Our key responsibilities include:
- Develop, support and implement student and academic policies, programs and initiatives.
- Deliver services for the pursuit of learning within and beyond the classroom that includes:
- Student administration covering admissions, orientation, scholarships, student records, examinations and assessments, graduation and student conduct;
- Student support covering students’ health and wellbeing, inclusion and integration, professional development, internship and attachment, student exchange, career advisory, and student activities and clubs.
- Administer the academic calendar, university learning facilities and resources.
- Assist in academic governance that covers academic council and senate, and changes in academic programmes and curriculum.
