WELFARE AND SUPPORT

The wellbeing of our students is very important to us.

We have a well-developed network of support services to help and guide you during your time here.

ADUN is one of the only universities with a dedicated Student Support team. The Admissions Office provides a meet and greet service from Asaba airport, and can assist with course enrolment and registration. The Student Support team will continue to lend their support if required throughout your time at ADUN.

Student Information Desk
The Student Information Desk is the gateway to student services in one, convenient location. Desks are located across both of our campuses, where you can speak to someone face-to-face. Each friendly Desk adviser will listen to your problem and try to resolve it for you there and then, or assign it to someone who can. Student Information Desk delivers a range of services, from academic planning, study techniques to booking appointments with various departments, and providing useful information.

Academic Advising
If you are a first-year student or a transfer student, you will be assigned a first-year ADUN career/academic Advisor. Your Advisor will contact you several times throughout the year to help you develop a four-year degree plan and to create an academic and engagement plan and set goals to help you achieve your academic goals within and beyond the classroom environment. Each session is tailored to the your needs and focuses on general academic advising, academic planning, exam success strategies and extracurricular engagement planning and campus involvement.

If you have a disability, a long-term medical condition or a specific learning difficulty such as dyslexia, you should contact our Disability Team. We will assist with study options and support you during your exams.
