What is advising?Service starting from April 20th.

Advising is a one-to-one conversation about your learning, with one of our learning advisors. This will take place either within a safe and private online environment or at a safe distance in the SALC itself (plexiglass screens and masks will be used). Our overall goal is to help you gain a deeper awareness of your language learning potential and to support your general well-being as a university student at KUIS.
