RU Career and Guidance Counsellors and Psychological Services

Career and Guidance Counsellors will provide information on available programmes at RU and individual support for students during their studies at RU. Support is provided for students by focusing on their strengths and interests.

We emphasise:

  • Strengthening student skills and ambition regarding studies and employability.
  • Strengthening student study skills and expertise for their best results.
  • Strengthening student self confidence and self knowledge.

We provide individual counselling, group counselling and variety of lunch-lectures and workshops. Visitors can also take an interest inventory test for a small fee.
