International Student Relations

    


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.

As ISR counsellors, we pledge, to the best of our ability, to:

1. Enhance the well-being and strengthen the values formation of the students by:

a. Instilling a commitment to develop positive character traits and affirming positive behaviours

b. Implementing programmes in sports, arts, environment awareness and community involvement

c. Being mentors for older students and authority figures for the younger ones

d. Being advisors to student council and student clubs (as applicable)

2. Provide a caring and safe environment where students can voice their concerns / feedbacks and can be assured of assistance in matters pertaining to:

a. Adjustment to living and studying in Singapore

b. Counselling about students’ management of their personal, financial, social or behavioural situations and crisis intervention

3. Ensure the confidentiality of counselling, and feedback / complaint cases among relevant parties only ( students, counsellors, personal tutors)

4. Keep the students well informed via orientation programme activities in all aspects ( academic and non academic, social) of their education

5. Continually educate ourselves in current counselling and student relation trends/updates

6. Work closely with the following for the wellbeing of the students:

a. Colleagues : to address the academic and non-academic concerns

b. Parents : to inform about the student/s updates and create solutions to problems, if any

c. External agencies/ partners:   to develop, plan and implement campus-wide programmes geared towards the holistic development of students

d. Outsourced hostel management: to address any accommodation matter

The four (4) aspects of student support provided by ISR are in the area of:

1.   ORIENTATION
