Issues brought to counselling

For example, we help students with following issues.

1. About academic and career
If you are unable to make a decision about your career path, feel free to talk to us. If you have problems related to your research, lab, or classes, we can also introduce professors in our department to support you.
2. About personal and emotional problems
You may want to know better about yourself or just want someone to be there to listen to your thoughts. We are here to work together with you on such problems.
3. About relationships
Do you have issues with your friends, family or other relationships? You can share any problems, for example, if you have issues with making friends in your research lab/social group or if your relationship with family is not working out for you.
4. About your health
You may feel stressed about your student life. If you have concerns such as feeling depressed, having no motivation to do anything, or easily getting irritated, visit us to talk about it.
5. Other issues with student life
You may have financial problems, issues about part-time job or got caught in a dishonest business practice. About those issues we will try our best to help you.
