When students from other countries come to study at Shelton College International, it is important that they are welcomed, informed and nurtured. With this in mind, the International Student Relations office has put in place a proper student welfare care system to support their journey as valued students at our institution.
Via the Pastoral Care Framework, ISR provides mediation and linkage between students and the relevant departments in order to address concerns and resolve problems/ difficulties of the students in a timely manner.
Being the conduit between students and the school, ISR is also aware of the importance of direct feedback to parents overseas. As such, we actively work to ensure that parents fully understand the progress levels of and updates on their child.
We provide ongoing care and student service support for our students. We, as caring counselors, demonstrate to our students that we are concerned for their well-being and we are their second family here in Singapore. We ensure that caring for our students is our utmost priority.
