Students Support Facilities
Students from BINUS UNIVERSITY INTERNATIONAL have the right to receive academic advisory from their Academic Advisor. The consultation may include academic advice, reports of academic achievements, information about results to their parents, and problem solving for academic problems that students experience during their study. The Academic Advisor also aims to motivate students either as individuals or as a group during class. The Academic advisor may advise the students of the courses they need to take or provide them with suggestions for a study plan.
Students are encouraged to schedule a meeting with their academic advisor (who is normally the appointed lecturer or their Head of Program), especially when they are planning their semester courses. Students should meet their academic advisor when they have academic difficulties in their study. It is very important that students seek academic help before their problems or difficulties become more serious and possibly jeopardize their success in studying.
English Language Services
English Language Services is responsible for innovating, designing and maintaining programs, and promoting, supporting and resolving communication issues relating to the use of the English language at BINUS UNIVERSITY INTERNATIONAL. This includes Pre-University English, Pre-Academic English and Academic English courses, a Language Clinic, Website, Social Networking Accounts and Self-Access Centre for students, pursuing contacts and developing programs and events with English language based entities in Indonesia and overseas, consultation, training and proofreading for faculty and staff, and coordination with our partner universities overseas.
ELS is pursuing a vision of making BINUS UNIVERSITY INTERNATIONAL a campus of high quality international communication through continual exposure to and immersion in international academic, professional and general English, not only for faculty, staff, visitors and resources but amongst students themselves. Students are also encouraged, in order to continually improve and update their English language ability, to make the most of facilities such as extremely effective one to one consultation sessions with native speakers and expatriate English faculty in the daily English Language Clinic. They are also recommended to contribute extra-curricular involvement in BEST, the student English club responsible for one of the most successful national and soon to be regional high school and university English competitions called E-Com, or to BIPEDS, one of the finest English debate organizations in Indonesia with an international reputation. Students will therefore be well prepared for, and feel at home in communicating in English in an international environment, thus smoothing the transition to studies overseas, and giving students a commanding edge.
