The Mentor-Mentee Program
Get valuable feedback and grow
To keep abreast of a student’s academic progress at INTI, both students and lecturers have access to the Blackboard Academic Learning system which helps them track the areas for improvement. Parents and caregivers are also invited twice a year to meet with the student’s lecturers and academic staff to discuss their academic performance and explore ways to enhance it.
INTI’s Support & Counselling Team
Expand your social circles and future horizons
New students and international arrivals at INTI are paired up with a senior student who acts as a role model and offers assistance in easing them into academic life. The mentor-mentee programme effectively supports new students to form social bonds and helps them become a part of the close-knit INTI community. These social bonds are invaluable and provide a significant part of the support a student receives during their journey at INTI.
Helping our students to excel Mentally, Emotionally, Socially & Academically (MESA)
M = Mental(ly)
Adjusting to the rigours of college life can be a daunting task. This is on top of potential family, health and
relationship problems which may be more than what a student can bear. INTI’s professionally trained team of student
counsellors are able to lend a friendly ear and a helping hand through free, professional student counselling in a
confident and discreet manner. Students are also exposed to workshops that highlight pressing mental health issues
such as recognising and addressing the risks of suicide, identifying depression, ways of combating stress and more.
E = Emotional(ly)
Mental health is but one component to achieving a well-balanced and healthy lifestyle. Emotionally healthy people
are able to cope with the challenges that life throws at them and have the ability to establish and maintain healthy
social ties with those around them. To avoid feelings of isolation or alienation, INTI assigns a senior student
mentor to new students who guide and help them to adjust to academic life. Students can also participate in group
counselling sessions to understand the dynamics and nuances of managing relationships and learn to cope with
S = Social(ly)
INTI offers robust social programmes across all its campuses that engage students in a positive and meaningful
way. At INTI there are a rich array of clubs, social networks and activities -many of which are proactively initiated by
fellow students - that promote social interaction, aid in improving soft skills and encourage students to contribute to
A = Academical(ly)
The demanding pace of higher education requires students to rapidly master a host of technical skills and new
ways of learning to succeed. With the integration of the Blackboard Learning Management system into INTI’s
first year experience programmes, students gain a bird’s eye view of their progress and can easily identify areas
for improvement with the help of their lecturers and academic staff. These are also supplemented with regular
workshops that help acclimatise students to the rapid pace of learning and usage of the Blackboard system.
