03. Academic Success Centre
The Academic Success Centre is an integral part of the academic assistance services provided by Kaplan Business School. The Centre provides direct support to both undergraduate and postgraduate students to acquire the literacy, numeracy, language and study skills required for academic success. Academic Learning Advisors help the students manage the demands of their assessments, and equip them with the necessary tools to meet the requirements of their courses.
ENGLISH LANGUAGE SUPPORT
As often happens, students may struggle with English even once their course begins. For that reason, Kaplan Business School offers a range of support services designed to help overcome these short-term limitations. For example: (i) students can enrol in BUS110, which is a subject on professional communication that especially focuses on advanced levels of English vocabulary and grammar; (ii) they can have a personalised coaching session with one of our Learning Advisors from our Academic Success Centre, all of whom are specifically trained in English instruction; and (iii) they can consult online with a complimentary tutoring service, whereby more than 500 experts are available to help interpret academic concepts, particularly at the foundational level.
STUDENT AMBASSADOR PROGRAM
You’re eligible to join our Student Ambassador Program, which is our formal student representative body, responsible for making KBS an even more welcoming and supportive place to learn.
As a student ambassador, you can take advantage of personal and professional development opportunities through focused networking, event management and training activities. This is your opportunity to be a role model, create a sense of community, build your network and get the most out of your time at KBS.
It is also a compelling addition to your curriculum vitae since it demonstrates to potential employers that you are a proactive and dedicated student, and engaged with the KBS management team, support staff, teachers, and of course your fellow students.
ACADEMIC BOARD MEMBERSHIP
One student per year is invited to become a formal member of our Academic Board, which is the principal academic body of KBS that governs, and is responsible for, all academic matters. As the student representative on this Board, you would serve a 12-month term, during which you would have the opportunity to actively participate in high-level decision making.
To be appointed to this position necessitates a competitive application process. The rewards, however, are numerous. In addition to developing a deep understanding of the complexities of academic management, you will also acquire the skills of governance and compliance that are the basis on which all decisions at KBS are made.
Attendance at these meetings, generally held in Sydney, are followed by a web-based presentation to your colleagues at which you not only share your observations but also collect feedback that can further inform your contribution in these important forums.
