Improve the support mechanism for disadvantages students


Through the Higher Education Sprout Project, five major learning support mechanisms have been established for economically disadvantaged students. These mechanisms include: “Fundamental Academic Guidance”, “Language and International Exchange Counseling”, “Diverse Learning Support”, “Career Exploration Counseling”, “Social Empowerment and Health Counseling”. By replacing the work-study approach with learning, we aim to help economically disadvantaged students continue pursuing their education with peace of mind. This includes providing subsidies for textbook purchase and offering one-on-one academic tutoring by student mentors hired by the school. We encourage the formation of reading clubs, provide awards for special research projects and learning, and offer various language proficiency courses and international exchange opportunities to expand students’ international perspectives. In terms of the transition from academic to career path, external vocational training, one-on-one career counseling, and off-campus internship programs are planned to help students outline their future plans. We provide comprehensive educational resources and financial assistance to students on their academic journey. In addition, we offer psychological counseling to provide students with emotional support. Furthermore, through social empowerment programmes, students are encouraged to participate in community service groups or campus volunteer activities so that they can use their abilities to become helpers and to transmit kindness.
