What is Academic Advising

What is Academic Advising

There are two components in the academic advising system at PolyU:

  • Department-based Academic Advising (primarily for matters related to major programme and career)
  • Institutional-level Academic Advising by the Student Affairs Office (SAO) (primarily for matters related to General University Requirements (GUR))

Academic advising aims to help you make informed and intelligent academic decisions/choices about your study at PolyU that suit your intellectual, professional and personal goals.

Let's start with the benefits of academic advising!
