Student Support Center

The Student Dean, in collaboration with the National Insurance Institute of Israel, has established a support center for students at the Ashdod campus, as part of the "Higher Education Revolution" project. A similar center is currently being built at the Be'er Sheva campus. This center offers students a wide range of academic and personal support services in order to enable them to realize the full extent of their individual potential.

The following services are provided at the center:

Individual Counseling:

Personal counseling sessions with the educational counselor conducted at the center, as well as ongoing accompanying services based on the student's individual needs.

Testing Method Adjustments:

Students that are dealing with learning difficulties and/or medical issues and/or other challenges may apply for personal adjustments pertaining to their testing methods throughout their degree studies.  These students must submit a valid diagnosis and/or document from relevant experts. They are invited to schedule a meeting with the educational counselor at the support center for an initial assessment of their issue, and receive additional guidance regarding the following process and diagnosis. A special committee will convene to evaluate the requests and determine eligibility.

Workshops:   

Workshops on various topics are held throughout the academic year, according to the needs of students. An example for such workshops include, amongst other: improving learning skills, dealing with text anxiety, time management, etc.

Supportive Technology:

A computer lab was established at the Ashdod campus, and it includes a technological learning center with various special technological and software aids for students to use.
