Learning Enhancement Programme

The Learning Enhancement Programme (LEP) is designed to assist freshmen to achieve their academic goals in their first year. It aims to equip students in becoming effective and independent learners. Through the programme, students can acquire the key to effective learning.

Components of LEP include:

Assessment of your Learning and Study Strategies

Every LEP participant is required to complete the "LASSI Assessment of Your Learning and Study Strategies".

Learning and Study Strategies Inventory (LASSI) - LASSI is an online Assessment of Your Learning and Study Strategies. It consists of 10 scales, 80 items and provides students with individual profiles indicating the strengths and weaknesses of your learning and study strategies. Based on the LASSI result, a detailed interpretation of your scoring will be provided in an assessment session.

Coaching Session

We offer free coaching sessions where each student can identify and discuss your learning issues or progress with the Faculty Liaison Counsellor.
