Students Welfare Officer
Skills development should be included in academic programs, rather than an add-on, to give students the best chance of shaping their future, says Marilyn Andrew.  We need to reassess our role as higher education providers. We should not just provide the opportunities for students to achieve good academic results but actively promote the benefits of a wider curriculum to students. After all, this institute should be seen as a transformative experience through which students can prepare themselves to succeed in the many and varied roles they will undertake in future life.
That’s why, over the last few years, we have evaluated to recognize the importance and value of both academic curriculum and co-curricular activities in developing the range of skills and attributes that are important for graduates.
