Students are offered a variety of events that will help them choose their university careers. They have the opportunity to participate in Career Days, College Fairs, visits from numerous international universities and colleges, and presentations and field trips to local universities.
In the interest of the student’s academic success, the institution offers periods of reinforcement for those who need it (free of charge). This tutoring program is taught by professors specialized in each area of academics.
